We have an exciting opportunity for a Graduate Manufacturing Engineer to join the Mechanical Assembly Process Engineering team in Southampton, supporting the manufacture of infra-red detector assemblies.
This is an engaging, hands-on role supporting manufacturing in a cutting-edge environment. It is also an excellent opportunity to develop your career, as the work of the group covers a diverse range of processes – combining hands-on and desk-based activities, offering a wide variety of options for potential future areas of development, dependant on the individual and business requirements.
Please note that in order to apply for this opportunity you must be eligible for UK Security Clearance. Normally this is to the level of Security Check (typically known as “SC”) for our business which includes having a minimum of 5 years permanent residency in the UK.
All of our roles require (a) a minimum of an upper Second class Bachelors/Integrated Masters degree, or (b) a higher degree, such as a MSc or PhD. In all cases the subject should be engineering, mathematics, physics or another relevant STEM discipline.
We are looking for someone with a combined engineering skillset, who is capable of supporting manufacturing – learning to solve hands-on problems with high-value components, manufacturing processes and equipment – but is also adept at office based data analysis, documentation and communication.
This skillset can be demonstrated by qualifications and relevant hobbies/interests. For example, if your hobbies include any “hands-on” activities such as restoring/fixing electro-mechanical machines, model making, fixing cars, repairing electronics, building musical instruments etc. and you have a STEM degree then we would be interested in hearing from you
Previous manufacturing related experience and knowledge of six-sigma/lean improvement techniques would be an advantage. Interest in learning about and working in a high-value, high-tech manufacturing facility is essential.
