Join the Sondrel Graduate Programme for 2021

The Sondrel G2021 Graduate Training Programme will be running in the UK, starting in September 2021.

The G2021 Programme provides graduates with an entry point to a fulfilling career in hardware or embedded software design. Over two years trainees receive a combination of five day courses, short courses and soft skills training courses alongside hands on experience in their field and an ongoing programme of mentorship and exciting opportunities to be part of company life.

Sondrel’s graduate programme provides the opportunity to get involved in chip development from the outset. What is more, there is guaranteed exposure to a wide range of disciplines and application areas and the chance to learn from some of the brightest people in the industry.

The type and variety of work here is unparalleled. The breadth and depth of our work is what gives us architectural authority and the skill of dealing capably with the unexpected twists that occur when your work is constantly breaking new ground.

Sondrel - Your IC Design Partner

Find out what Sondrel does: working in partnership to create system on chip and application specific integrated chips to create products that inform, assist, engage and entertain.

Programme Overview

There are two routes into our programme: one geared towards IC hardware engineering and one focused on embedded software.

The core of the Graduate Programme is the same for everyone and is designed to immerse you into business life so you can contribute to all aspects of our work culture and develop as an employee with business skills as well as vocational engineering skills.

Both routes include a mixture of five day courses on site and off site, plus online or self-taught courses that you take with support from your mentor. These learning modules expose you to all aspects of the work in your chosen route so that you can find out what you are particularly good at and enjoy.

Hardware Route

During Year 1 you will spend time completing placements and gaining experience and understanding in four core areas of the IC development process.

Year 2 will start with you completing a two month placement in a specialist area of your choice (for example Software, Programme Management, BizDev, Architecture). You will then move on to live customer engagements, utilising the skills and experience that you have already developed on the programme.

Embedded Software Route

Year 1 of the Embedded Software Route includes two important five day, off-site training courses. From the start you will be working on live projects alongside engineers in a number of different placements. This provides a chance to shadow, learn and contribute through all four aspects of the development process; design, development, testing and debugging. As your skills develop you will be able to tackle increasingly difficult and varied engineering problems, always being able to rely on the combined experience of the team when you need it. In Year 2, training and project work continues with more autonomy.

NB You must have the right to work in the UK.
