About the Programme

We have a big vision: over the next five years we want to double our operating profits. It’s incredibly ambitious. But drive and ambition have got us to where we are today and we have no intention of slowing down now. Having such ambitious goals means we’re keen to attract the very best engineering graduates from around the globe to help us. In return, you’ll enjoy the outstanding support you need to fulfil your potential, and the opportunity to play a key part in our growth.

Our two-year Graduate Programme offers a uniquely diverse experience. You’ll undertake different rotations, getting exposure to a range of exciting projects and locations around the world. You’ll work on live projects, take on real responsibility and experience the product lifecycle end-to-end. All of which will help you build your long-term engineering career with us.

The programme has been developed to support your personal and professional growth. We’ll offer you a wide range of demanding but rewarding experiences. In short, we’ll equip you to make an impact – then we’ll give you the opportunity to follow it through and take it further.

What can I expect?

The divisional programmes follow a common structure but each of our three divisions has tailored its programme to suit their strategy and type of business. You’ll need to choose a business that’s based in a country where you’re eligible to work, and you’ll need to be fluent in that country’s language. It’s vital that you’re fluent in English wherever you join us, as that’s the business language of our company.

In 2017, we’re looking for 30 skilled engineers. Your journey with IMI will start in your home country, with at least one placement outside of that country. Take a look at the map on our homepage to see which divisions we have in which countries.

How long does the programme run?

All 30 graduates will join IMI in 2017. That’s when your programme will start and over the course of two years you’ll gain a detailed understanding of the division, its technologies and the market in which it operates.

Take a look at the table below for an overview of our graduate programme, to see which division is right for you.
