About our Graduate Programme

You’ll relish the challenge of having a job in which you can make an impact from day one. Joining one of our departments as a core member of the team, you will gain immediate exposure to exciting projects and challenges that will enable you to rapidly develop deep expertise and technical ability.

We provide an opportunity to really pursue your interests and passion early in your journey with us, supported by technical training and a broader programme of career support and training and development. Our dedicated Graduate Development Team will provide the right combination of challenge and support throughout, helping you achieve your ambitions. We know that professional recognition is important to you too, so we provide mentoring and expertise to help you achieve valued qualifications or chartered status in your chosen field.

You’ll benefit from collaborating with world leading engineers, technicians and scientists – in addition to being part of a growing and vibrant graduate community – building networks and connections across STFC, UKRI, and beyond.

The diversity of our organisation means that no two career pathways are the same, but whichever route you choose, we know you’ll have an enjoyable early careers experience with us.
