Gatwick is offering trainee engineers the opportunity to apply for its graduate programme and help take forward the next stage of the airport’s £2.5bn transformation.
The programme is in partnership with the University of Brighton, University College London and Imperial College London and will see three engineering graduates join Gatwick’s engineering team each year. The selected universities were chosen for providing renowned excellence in engineering studies.
Applications for Civil Engineers, Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and, for the first time, Quantity Surveyors are all now open.
Gatwick will provide mentoring and support for each graduate to gain Chartered Engineer status, as well as further professional development opportunities. This complements Gatwick’s well-established engineering apprenticeship programme, which celebrates its 40th anniversary next year.
Further opportunities will be made available for each graduate to go on secondment with one of the airport’s contractor partners.
Gatwick’s Development Director, Raymond Melee said: “This is an exciting time for the graduate engineers to join our team and help deliver the next phase of Gatwick’s £2.5bn transformation. I am especially proud of the relationships Gatwick has forged with the universities to enable this programme to take place and look forward to working with each of the successful candidates.”
