Play a Key Role
Graduate Project Leaders are accountable for technical work, whether they’re managing groups of people or projects. The graduate should be confident in electrical/electronic engineering, software engineering or mechanical engineering. Regardless of the graduates chosen discipline, they will be exposed to all aspects of the business and are encouraged to take a hands-on approach in the initial phases. They will play a key role in projects and are expected to be proficient in research, design, planning, system testing, implementation and project control.
The graduate will be exposed to the entire lifecycle of the projects from inception to completion. Early on the graduate will be given their own project to manage, from start to finish. The graduate will be supported and mentored throughout the scheme by a Senior Manager, but the graduate will have freedom to work autonomously. The graduate will also work as part of project teams and will be invited and encouraged to participate fully as team member. As the graduate progresses they will be given increased levels of responsibility and the graduate is expected to become a Senior Project Leader within two years.
Graduates are expected to work towards gaining Chartered status and the scheme will offer the student an opportunity to further their work based evidence. A Personal Development Plan will be set out at the beginning of the placement, which is aimed at allowing the graduate to achieve Chartered Status, as soon as possible.
Mechanical design and manufacturing is at the heart of most of Labman’s projects. Mechanical engineers are involved from the very start of a project using Solidworks to design and simulate solutions. All Labman projects include a variety of mechanical components such as bearings, transmission components, vibration isolation, fixings and pneumatic systems.
Hands on design and development is encouraged and is often the best way to quickly develop new concepts and ideas. Labman maintains a huge variety of components dedicated to prototype manufacture and development.
Graduate mechanical engineers can expect to become proficient in 3D design and simulation as well as use CADCAM to manufacture components on CNC millers, routers and lathes. Manufacturing knowledge using most engineering metals and plastics will enable graduates to design more effectively and efficiently.
The graduate must have a good engineering degree in a relevant discipline. Labman expect the graduate to have an intrinsic interest and intuitive understanding of engineering, underpinned by academic theoretical knowledge base. Understanding engineering from first principles and first-hand knowledge, as well as learned engineering subject matter, is a must. The candidate must be of a get-up-and-go attitude showing perseverance in the face of difficulty. The graduate must have a good A-Level in maths and preferably another science A-Level.
Due to the varied nature of the custom projects at Labman the graduate should be able to quickly assimilate and comprehend knowledge in an unfamiliar topic, more often than not in an area unrelated to previous study.
What We’re Offering
The chance to work in our award-winning, custom-built headquarters, complete with climbing wall, go-karts, and a squash court.
The opportunity to live and work in the fantastic area of Teesside - the world’s best kept secret. Labman HQ is located on the outskirts of the Georgian Market town of Stokesley - a stone’s throw from the breath-taking East Coast and the Yorkshire moors and yet only 90 minutes from the Lake District and 2 ½ hours to London by train. If you’re local, you know all this. If you’re not, then keep it to yourself; we like to keep the 'grim up north’ façade going as it helps keep the numbers down.
