Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"I would recommend Cobham as a place to work, because they actually care about their employees and work-life balance."
I am on the Cobham Graduate Development Program, and for my current placement, I am working as a Systems Engineer in the Air-to-Air Refuelling Probes IPT (Integrated Project Team). This means I am providing all sorts of engineering support for the project – from writing analysis reports to dealing with un-expected issues during production to supporting verification testing. There is always something new and exciting happening!
I chose Cobham because they are a global company doing an incredibly wide range of activities that all solve interesting problems in extreme environments.
In previous placements, I have helped develop an entirely new process to handle contractual changes during a major development project, as well as writing an entire Hazardous Materials Report from scratch.
In my current role, the biggest challenges are when I change placement every 6-months – adjusting to entirely new faces, processes and systems. There is always so much going on!
Next for me is deciding what I want to be doing longer term, as a permanent role. There are so many different possibilities to choose from!
I would recommend Cobham as a place to work, because they actually care about their employees and work-life balance, as well as providing great opportunities to learn and develop.
