Universities team up to launch engineering graduate scheme

Published: Sunday, 03 April 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Six universities, based in the Midlands, have launched a new graduate placement scheme after joining up with an engineering recruitment consultancy.

Engineering recruitment consultancy firm Consilium have become partners with De Montfort, Nottingham Trent, Derby, Aston, Wolverhampton and Coventry Universities to try and bridge the skills gap which has become evident in the sector.

The scheme is aiming to provide high-quality engineering, science and manufacturing graduate trainees to the region’s most vital employers, as well as smaller firms currently unable to attract sufficient talent with the required skills.

Graduates with the appropriate qualities will be identified, most of whom will be BEng or BSc graduates with a vast choice of professionally accredited and industry relevant degrees.

Who are Consilium?

Consilium – who are aiming to become the leading provider of recruitment solutions for organisations within the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and energy sectors – has a track record of selecting and recruiting high quality graduates.

Talented graduates have joined high-technology start-ups and SMEs as well as international engineering groups, with clients including Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren and Bosch.

The scheme

Candidates will be tasked with completing a stringent assessment before they are given the chance to link with the most appropriate employer who is looking for someone with the required skills. 

Opportunities will also be given for assessment events, on-board consultation to assist businesses get the most out of their graduate schemes, and expert help for firms just beginning to recruit graduates.

Close links to the six university’s engineering and science faculties will allow Consilium to identify not just engineers with valuable core skills, but also those with innovation skills that are deemed vital to employers.

The experience and capability of Consilium is going to be used to ensure that a pool of willing, educated and enthusiastic graduates will be able to find the most suitable place to begin their career.
