About the programme:

Undergraduates will complete a one year Industrial Placement within our business commencing in summer/autumn 2019.

Our Engineering undergraduate roles will be office based; however, occasionally we have site based placements available depending on project requirements.

Our aim is to provide you with an insight into our business, whilst gaining valuable experience of overhead line, cabling or substation design engineering to support your studies.

You will be given guidance and support you need to ensure you make the most of your time with us as we want you to make a valid contribution to the business throughout your placement. So in order that you develop quickly, you will be given a real taster of the role including site and office based experience as early as possible.
