Meggitt is a global engineering group specialising in products for extreme environments and smart sub-systems for aerospace, defence and energy markets. We employ over 11,000 people across manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe, North America, with regional bases in India and the Middle East.
In the Operations Graduate Programme, the individual will learn about and make a tangible contribution to experience operations in a manufacturing environment with a focus on operational excellence. They will progress through a tailored programme of structured projects encompassing areas such as operational excellence, supply chain strategy, advanced manufacturing, manufacturing strategy, manufacturing systems / planning, and will be expected to undertake an assignment outside the Operations function. The graduate is required to work in a number of Meggitt locations and during their assignments, will be support high profile projects with exposure to methodologies such as LEAN, Six Sigma, and APQP . In addition they will work closely with other Graduate Programme members on engineering stream.
The three-year programme rotates through four nine-month placements:
An interest in operations management and manufacturing along with someone who can demonstrate a passion in innovative Engineering, Manufacturing Systems, and Manufacturing Management
How long has the Program been in rotation?
We launched our first rotation in 2012.
Will my pay be adjusted with each rotation?
We do a compensation analysis based upon your discipline and the areas in which you would be placed to ensure you are market competitive throughout your tenure in the programme.
How will I be measured for my performance?
Just as our internal staff has goals and deadlines to measure for performance, the Graduate Program has goals and milestones attached for reviews as well.
What if I want to enroll in a MBA/MS/PhD program in the next 3 years?
Please do keep in mind this is a rotational program and you will be asked to move every 9 months. With that being said, a virtual academic program may be possible, however traditional schools will most likely not be accommodating to your rotations.
What is the interview process?
After you apply via our website, you will have an initial phone interview, one technical phone interview with one of the Programme Mentors followed by final panel interviews.
