Join our graduate scheme, where you’ll be an essential part of a team looking to create a healthier, greener and sustainable future.
NanoSUN is a rapidly expanding company that is dedicated to developing the skills and experience of engineering graduates looking to work in the renewable sector. With a graduate scheme specifically created to nurture and grow bright innovative engineers, we have implemented a structured program that is designed to cover a range of skills and projects focussed on hydrogen refuelling solutions over a two-year period.
NanoSUN’s general engineering framework has been carefully constructed to rotate graduates around the various functions and disciplines within the businesses’ engineering, manufacturing and R&D functions. This allows and encourages each graduate to mould their career path to their desired areas of expertise. We also offer an EC&I graduate scheme, in which you will start on a specialist path working within our small EC&I team, providing electrical and controls inputs to all our major projects.
What You'll Do
The graduate scheme is designed to align with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) bodies, in order to support our graduates on the path to chartership with their relevant governing body. The rotating element of the scheme allows engineers to spend time with different engineering disciplines in order to evidence competencies needed for gaining their chartership. Your training will be carefully planned to ensure that you get exposure to Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP), Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA), Critical Design Reviews (CDRs), Electrical Training, Project Management and other skills, which will be delivered through a mixture of external training courses, on the job and internal training from our experienced and knowledgeable team of experts.
On our general engineering graduate scheme, you will spend two years across our main functions split into two main placements. The first being in either manufacturing or R&D, and the second within the engineering function. Each of these placements will be for a duration of nine months, with six months at the end reserved for a transition period off the scheme into a permanent staff role within one of the functions. The more specialist EC&I graduate scheme will be based solely within the electrical and controls department, but you will still be given the opportunity to experience all aspects of project work in order to progress through your chartership.
What We'll Do
As a graduate at NanoSUN you will be consistently supported by a range of team members in order to develop both personally and professionally throughout the scheme. As well as your line manager being involved in the day-to-day planning, you will be assigned a mentor and a buddy. Your buddy will be a friendly face as you settle into the scheme and your first role following university. Your mentor will be someone external from industry associated with your governing body, who will be able to guide you as you progress through your chartership. This allows you to have a point of contact outside of management, completely separate to your working life at NanoSUN, for the sole purpose of assisting you with your personal and professional development.
We will always be on hand to ensure you experience a healthy work-life balance and monitor your wellbeing to encourage a positive experience. We have a great culture here at NanoSUN, with a friendly and inclusive team that understands and values the importance of each individual's input into the business.
