With a strong bias towards remote areas and challenging deep-water locations, it is a leader in the supply of engineering, procurement, project management and construction services, with distinctive capabilities in the design and execution of large-scale offshore and onshore projects.


Our Client operates a prestigious fleet of vessels for offshore construction in shallow and deep water. These include Heavy lift vessels & large transportation barges for installing/removing topsides, jackets and large  windfarm  components, Pipelay vessels for installation of rigid / flexible pipelines, umbilical’s & cables, construction vessels for subsea trenching & subsea structures installation.


Training and development will be provided to build a range of technical and professional skills, which are necessary to work in their multi-disciplinary project based organisation covering at times a range of work locations. Whilst the role will predominantly be London based, some flexibility will be needed to undertake work in other offices and offshore sites at appropriate times.


Our Client is actively expanding our capability in engineering and construction in the renewables sector (offshore wind farms).


The Graduate role requires strong theoretical background in ferrous alloys and corrosion resistance alloys (CRA), their chemical and mechanical properties as well as their manufacturing process in relation to alloys used in offshore wind farm structure and associate components.


Our Client encourages and supports all engineers in their professional development to achieve Chartered Engineer status.




SALARY & BENEFITS - £33k per annum plus full training for degree and Masters graduates.
