Explore the world of IMI 

Join a highly successful engineering and technology business. Gain first-hand experience of project management. Lay the foundations for a truly international career.

At IMI, we improve everyday life through new thinking and technology. From a valve that can hold the force of a jet engine to heating systems that allow remote troubleshooting via the internet. From state-of-the-art tooling for automotive manufacturers to the machine that makes your morning coffee.

Join IMI within our Critical Engineering Division, at one of our two sites in either Birmingham or Poole, and you can gain unique engineering project management experience as part of a specialist valve manufacturer for nuclear and naval marine applications. 

Breakthrough engineering for a better world

We do much more than creating simple components for customers – we look for ways of solving industry problems that have an impact on everyday life.

What you’ll be doing

Over two years, you’ll gain exposure to all aspects of project management work, from performance management to customer engagement, from creating project plans to submitting project status reports. Throughout, you will be acting as the key customer contact for day-to-day issues and will work closely with internal and external stakeholders on project delivery. 

For the first year of the programme, you will be doing an engineering project management placement in either Birmingham or Poole. For your second year, you will have the opportunity to do an international placement. 

What you need

No specific degree discipline is required, but we are keen to hear from people with a proven interest in project management. What is essential is that you are a British citizen and have a British passport. 

Key qualities we’re looking for include:

  • Fluent written and spoken English with the ability to communicate and connect with all kinds of people
  • Strong customer focus
  • Strategic thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent organisation skills with the ability to stay calm and work well under pressure
  • Can-do, will-do attitude, with the determination to continually improve.

What we offer

On top of a great rewards package and an opportunity to gain international exposure, you’ll get early responsibility and the chance to develop a wide range of project management skills – everything you need to get your career off to a flying start. Our graduate development team will also be on hand to provide help and advice whenever you need it.
