The Specialist Engineering Group is a collection of manufacturing businesses focusing primarily within the metal processing sector. The SE Group currently operates in industries that vary from automotive to office furniture.

Through acquisitions, the SE Group is continually looking to add to its growing portfolio to enhance and diversify its position within the manufacturing sector.

Some of the clients we work with include JCB, Jaguar Landrover and Caterham.


As part of our Graduate Project Engineering Programme, you will have opportunities to rotate through the group to gain a greater understanding of how the SE Group and its associated businesses work.

You will work on different areas of the business to help improve efficiency, productivity and cost effectiveness. These will include, but may not be limited to: process development, continuous improvement, supply chain and feasibility studies. As a naturally strong communicator, you will work with our teams internally to ensure that we are working in the most efficient way. You will also be comfortable working and liaising with existing clients.


As a project engineer you will be exposed to several areas of the business. As you progress you will cover the following duties:

• Estimating and providing quotations
• Supporting the Supply Chain process
• Materials Management
• Process Flow
• Feasibility Studies


Academically, we are looking for CCC (or higher) at A-level and a 2:2 degree (or higher) from an engineering-related discipline such as Mechanical, Manufacturing, Production or Chemical Engineering (obtained within the last 3 years). You will have strong communication skills both verbal and written. You will also be:

• A strong communicator
• Process driven
• A logical and precise thinker
• Adaptable
• Mature
• Willing to learn and improve
• In possession of a full, valid UK driving licence
• Able to start in June/July


At the SE Group, we know how hard our graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to our business, which is why we offer the people who join us a very attractive package.

• £20,000 – £25,000 salary (depending on experience)
• 25 days bank holiday (plus bank holidays)


We provide an exciting, hands-on training experience to sit alongside your role. You will be enrolled on the Discovery development programme, The OPEN Programme, which supports you in your transition from academia to working life. In addition to active learning experiences and sustained support for the entire 18-month programme, you will achieve a Level 3 qualification from the ILM upon completion.

Furthermore, you will get exposure and support from the Managing Director, as well as protected time once a month with the CEO to support your development on the Graduate programme.
