Graduate training scheme backed my industry giant

Published: Saturday, 21 May 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Smith & Nephew, a medical equipment making giant, has agreed to partner an engineering training provider in an attempt to boost graduates’ skills.

Humberside Engineering Training Association (HETA) already supplies Smith & Nephew with apprentices and has now launched a new scheme aimed at recruiting graduates from across the UK.

There has already been an intake on a six-week course at HETA’s base in Hull, with the training provided set to help Smith & Nephew understand how to make the most of their skills within its workforce of 1,000 people – part of a global team of 14,000.

Smith & Nephew see it as important part of development for an engineer to have experience within workshops and to understand the practices involved.

The firm already takes a number of engineering graduates into their academy each year and gives them the opportunity to move around within the company during their two-year programme, with the aim of providing an in-depth understanding and to find out where they fit best.

First class training

Due to Smith & Nephew’s apprentices already studying at HETA, the company was sure that the graduates on the scheme would receive a high standard of training.

Whilst the aim is to attract graduates from the area around Hull, the company has decided not to place limitations on who they will take on.

Smith & Nephew’s Hull site is a global development and research centre for the businesses range of wound management products – the company has also spent £50 million over three years on capital investment in Hull.

HETA, who are well recognised for delivering traineeships and apprenticeships, will allow graduates the chance to build on the skills they have learnt whilst studying at university.

Graduates will be able to learn techniques and equipment, including manual assembly, computer-aided design, milling machines, machining using lathes, welding and fabrication.
