Job description

We aim to grow and nurture future talent allowing graduates to become the best and most innovative engineers they can be. The General Dynamics UK Engineering Graduate Scheme allows successful candidates to work across a number of different departments and engineering roles contributing to solution design, solution delivery and solution sustainment within the two business lines of General Dynamics UK.

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

Your first year will include a range of training courses, 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 possibly our future leaders.

Once you have successfully completed the graduate scheme, you will become an engineer in the relevant and chosen area of the business. Your manager/supervisor 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.

The Electronic Systems business unit, based in Hastings, designs and develops advanced Avionics products and solutions for Fixed Wing and Rotary aircraft including the UK Typhoon jet fighter, also Wildcat and Merlin helicopters.
