Within this stream of our 2-year-rotational European Graduate Program, you will be part of the Operations Team of our production site in Cramlington (UK) and rotate through two different assignments within manufacturing. But it will not only be about becoming a technical expert. To drive a sustainable continuous improvement in the site, you will need to demonstrate and develop further your communication and leadership skills to make an impact and contribute to our ambition to define and deliver world-class manufacturing processes, products and services.

While you are on this exciting journey, you will receive plenty of support along the way. Our Mentoring and Training Program, combined with on-the-job learning, will enable you to build your skills and transition from college to the corporate workplace, leveraging strengths and defining your career path.

Wondering what your career path will look like after completion of the program?

We are committed to your career long-term. Having successfully completed your rotations, you will have the opportunity to build your career your way.
