Is doing something in engineering more of a passion than a job to be done?
Do you have the ambition to contribute to low-carbon, sustainable aluminium solutions that advance our business, industry, and society towards the benefits of a circular economy?

If you answer at least ONE of these questions with a clear YES, it is the right time to become a part of Novelis as a Trainee (for Novelis' Engineering Development Programme.)
