Graduate Vacancies

What will I be doing: engineering graduate scheme

The General Dynamics UK Engineering graduate scheme allows successful candidates to work across a number of different teams within engineering throughout the Company.

The engineering graduate scheme runs for 24 months and consists of up to four six-month rotations across the business streams (however, there is some flexibility depending on projects/business demand). These rotations ensure that you gain experience and a full appreciation of how General Dynamics UK operates. You will have hands-on experience undertaking activities under the supervision and guidance from mentors and managers.

Your first year will include a range of training — covering technical, interpersonal and team working, to develop skills that are fundamental to the business. Graduates will form multi-disciplined teams where you will learn about the various programmes and business streams, carrying out research and presenting back findings to the business.

Graduates joining General Dynamics UK will be expected to add value from day one. Through the development programme and through work experience in departmental areas, graduates will develop into valuable members of the business and hopefully our future leaders.

Once you have successfully completed the graduate scheme, you will become an engineer in a relevant area of the business. However, that’s not where your support ends. You’ll be assigned a career mentor to support you during year’s three and four, who will help and guide your development and ensure that your personal development plan is aligned with your own career aspirations, which might include further study for some.
