Now that Uni’s Finished – Get Properly Stuck In.
With live projects given to graduates from day one, a Labman grad scheme gets you up and running very quickly
Play a Key Role
Graduate Project Leaders are accountable for technical work, whether they’re managing groups of people or projects. You should be confident in electrical/electronic engineering, software engineering or mechanical engineering.
Regardless of your chosen discipline, you will be exposed to all aspects of the business and are encouraged to take a hands-on approach in the initial phases. You will play a key role in projects and are expected to be proficient in research, design, planning, system testing, implementation and project control.
Early on you will be given your own project to manage, from start to finish. You will be supported and mentored throughout the scheme by a Senior Manager, and you’ll have freedom to work autonomously. You will also work as part of project teams and will be invited and encouraged to participate fully as team member.
As you progresses you will be given increased levels of responsibility and will be expected to become a Senior Project Leader within two years. Graduates are also expected to work towards gaining Chartered status and the scheme will offer the student an opportunity to further their work-based evidence.
What Are We Looking For?
You must have a good engineering degree in a relevant discipline. Labman expect the graduate to have an intrinsic interest and intuitive understanding of engineering, underpinned by academic theoretical knowledge base. Understanding engineering from first principles and first-hand knowledge, as well as learned engineering subject matter, is a must.
You must be of a get-up-and-go attitude showing perseverance in the face of difficulty. You must have a good A-Level in maths and preferably another science A-Level.
Due to the varied nature of the custom projects at Labman you should be able to quickly assimilate and comprehend knowledge in an unfamiliar topic, more often than not in an area unrelated to previous study.
We are looking for those who have an active interest with how things work. Do you have a few projects on the go with an Arduino or are you always rebuilding engines and working on home DIY projects? If so, we would love to hear about it. Be sure to include any personal projects with your application.
What Are We Offering?
The chance to work in our award-winning, custom-built headquarters, complete with climbing wall, go-karts, and a squash court.
The opportunity to live and work in the fantastic area of Teesside – the world’s best kept secret. Labman HQ is located on the outskirts of the Georgian Market town of Stokesley – a stone’s throw from the breath-taking East Coast and the Yorkshire moors and yet only 90 minutes from the Lake District and 2 ½ hours to London by train. If you’re local, you know all this. If you’re not, then keep it to yourself; we like to keep the ‘grim up north’ façade going as it helps keep the numbers down.
£20,000 to £26,500
The pay scale is expected to increase quickly in line with responsibility.
