Graduate Opportunities - Calling recent engineering graduates.

Are you an Engineering Graduate (BEng) in electrical, mechanical, aerospace or similar looking for that ideal graduate position to get your foot in the door?

This is a great opportunity for an  Engineering Graduate (BEng) to join a world leader in the design and manufacturing of aerospace machine automation to gain invaluable skills and experience as a Mechanical Engineer.

Work will predominantly be based at  Airbus (Broughton), alongside opportunities to travel internationally on projects.

Some of the projects include - complete automation design, assembly systems for commercial aircraft wings, riveting machines and tools for wing panel and fuselage assembly, robotic assembly systems and spacecraft handling equipment.

The role will be very hands-on and the successful candidate will need the ability to use various hand tools and equipment in order to fault find and repair machine faults during reactive and preventative maintenance procedures.

You will need to be determined and have great attention to detail, with the ability to work under your own guidance and be part of a team after completing a machine familiarisation training package. At times, you will need to be customer-facing so you'll need to be mindful of customer site requirements.

You will join one of their support or design teams immediately and be given an initial training plan to follow. During the initial training period, you will be shadowing experienced engineers to gain the skills and knowledge required to complete your initial training. We are looking for people who love working in a team, are determined and like to solve complex problems. If that sounds like you and you are keen to constantly learn new things and expand your knowledge then we want to hear from you!

All engineers discuss which shifts to work so it's not set.

The 12-hour early and late shifts are paid 11.5 hours, and weekend shifts are paid 9.58 hours.

The overall shift multiplier on average is just over 1.3.

All support shifts outside of Monday to Friday are paid at a shift premium.


Candidates are expected to have good practical skills in assembly, be comfortable around tools and can demonstrate this.

  • CATIA or other CAD Skills are an advantage.
