Year One

BE believe it is important for graduates to gain an understanding of all parts of a project, and the first year of your graduate scheme aims to do just that, with shorter rotations in a number of areas. A typical rotation is shown below but at BE we aim give, not just a one size fits all, standard programme, but a flexible scheme tailored to suit the individual’s interests and the needs of the business.

Typically, year one of the scheme is based on 3‐month rotations across several packages/disciplines on one or more of BE’s current projects.

In addition to time spent embedded on projects you will participate in relevant training schemes to support your development and ensure you have the skills to flourish in your role.

Year Two

While year one aims to give you a grounding in all aspects of a typical project, year two looks to expand your knowledge in one or two specific areas, building on your specialties and interests. As with year one you will be working within a package team on one of our ongoing projects gaining real world experience in working with your team to tackle the challenges faced in a project environment.

As in year one you’ll also undertake further training and additional qualifications further tailored to your career direction.

What do I need to join?

You’ll ideally have a minimum of a 2:2 BEng in either a Building Services, Electrical, Economics, Energy Management, Chemical, Civil, Mechanical, Materials, Process, Structural, Sustainable Energy or Renewable Energy degree.

We’d love you to have practical work or project experience that reflects your passion for the role, as well as demonstrable experience of working in a team. You’ll also be comfortable working to and setting stretching individual targets and using your own initiative to overcome challenges.

You should have an interest in the energy sector and show alignment with BE’s core values. We also ask that you have a flexible approach to work locations and be genuinely committed to developing a career with us ‐ as we are with you.

All roles are likely to involve some travel to other sites to gain practical exposure to a wide range of business areas, therefore a full UK driving license would be an advantage but is not essential.
