Who are Caterpillar?
Are you passionate about business? Good. We are too.
Caterpillar has been building the world's infrastructure for over 90 years as the leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines. But beyond this, the organisation has established itself as a technology leader in construction, transportation, mining, forestry, energy, logistics, electronics, financing and electric power generation. Caterpillar is a globally diverse company. Its people come from many places. Their backgrounds and experiences are different and so are the businesses they work for within Caterpillar.
Global Power Solutions Division (GPSD) deliver operational excellence in manufacturing Diesel and Gas Driven Generating Sets and Equipment. As part of GPSD, the Larne based Large Electric Power Team (LEP) includes Supply Chain, Manufacturing Engineering, Quality Engineering, Environmental Health and Safety, and Operations Managers who align to deliver superior safety, quality, velocity and cost to our business partners.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Graduate Engineer to join our Large Electric Power team based in Larne. Based in our Manufacturing Engineering Team, working with others across our organisation, you would be directly involved and at the heart of our business, participating on strategic projects driving continuous improvement, efficiency gain and cost reduction.
What experiences can you offer me?
The Manufacturing Engineering Team are responsible for leading production employees to execute the manufacture, assembly, test and paint processes within the Larne manufacturing facility, to deliver a world-class product to our customers. This role utilises the Caterpillar Production System (Lean Manufacturing) Principles to deliver People, Quality, Velocity and Cost (PQVC) improvements and results.
Based within the Manufacturing Engineering team you will be working on real projects, alongside experienced manufacturing engineers gaining first-hand experience of:

Who are we looking for?
We’re looking for people who can show us a highly participative working style, and who thrive in a team of committed professionals. And at the same time, we need people who can think independently and drive change through persuasion and influence. Strong analytical, communication and presentational skills are a must as you’d need to package clear strategic recommendations based on data and sell them confidently to production and management employees.
