Cobham's values of Trust, Talent and Technology have driven us from our
launch in 1934 by Sir Alan Cobham, an aviation innovator, to becoming a
global leader in state-of-the-art aerospace and defence systems.
Sir Alan worked tirelessly to make flying popular. His personal dream
was that 'one day there would be a landing ground in every major town'.
More than 75 years later, with airports commonplace, that pioneering
spirit thrives. We have 12,000 dedicated professionals across five
continents, producing world leading products and solutions, generating
revenues of over £1bn.
We have a long track record of raising successive generations of
innovators, pioneers and entrepreneurs, like Sir Alan, to be proud of.
But more than ever, in a world of accelerating change and global
competition, it is the talent we attract and encourage now that will
underwrite our future.
Degree: BA (Hons) Mathematics, MPhil in Industrial Systems, Manufacturing and Management
"One of the things that really attracted me to the Cobham graduate
programme was the breadth of opportunities available, as graduates are
not restricted to a particular site or function. I have really been able
to make the most of this by having varied placements. I have worked in
an executive office at Bournemouth Airport, as an antenna design
engineer and as a process engineer at our Marlow site, and currently in
Operations for Cobham Avionics and Surveillance Division."
"In every role that I have had, I have been given real responsibility
right from the start; whether it be preparing briefing materials and
organising meetings for a Divisional President (in my second week!),
putting together an engineering project proposal requiring significant
capital expenditure, or managing a project to ensure that we have the
right training and development plans in place for our Operations staff
right across the business."
"I have found the graduate programme to be well structured, with a good
balance between being able to get on with your day job, and being
supported and developed through independent mentors, regular reviews and
frequent training sessions."
Training & Profiles
Throughout the programme, you'll have regular performance and
development reviews with your assignment manager. We'll also allocate a
mentor to provide you with personal and professional support - plus a
development log for you to track all your learning activities. If you
want to gain a relevant professional qualification, such as Chartered
status or Professional Certifications, we'll support you in that too.
At Cobham, we're seeking graduates with real passion, talent and
potential. If that sounds like you, here is where you'll discover the

hints and tips on creating a successful application.
The selection process is a chance to demonstrate your skills,
inspirations, ambitions and abilities, and show us why a career with
Cobham would be the perfect fit for you.
What are your application requirements? If you're a graduate
with a 3.5 GPA, first class or upper second class honours degree in an
engineering or a business related subject looking to build an
innovative, rewarding career, Cobham is the place for you.
Do you offer accreditation? Our graduate programme is
accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution
of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Recently graduated engineers from
accredited programmes have a distinct advantage if they decide in due
course to register as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) or an Incorporated
Engineer (IEng), as independent professional accreditation is
well-recognised both in the UK and Internationally.
