Precision Engineering Programme

The difference you'll make to our Precision Engineering division will be real - you'll never just be a bystander. Join us in one of our regions around the globe and start building your long-term career with us.


The feeling of pace, momentum and energy is growing at IMI, as we continue to grow our business around the world. We're already ahead of the game, and people are starting to take notice. If you're a passionate, skilled engineer, and have (or are expecting in 2017) a good Mechanical, Electronic, Mechatronic or Manufacturing engineering degree, this could be your time to excel.

From the time you join us you'll get stuck straight into four placements of six months duration. The programme you'll follow will cover four elements of our engineering spectrum; Operations, Research & Development, Project Management and Business Development. It's all meant to give you a thorough grounding in what we do. However, we realise that there may be times when a specialist programme is more appropriate. In these cases you'll undertake multiple placements in the same discipline.

The locations of the placements will depend on which country (USA, India, Germany, Czech Republic, UK or Switzerland) you apply to. The majority of the placements will be within that country, with at least one placement being outside of that country (though still within the geographical region of the country of application, i.e. Americas, Europe, or Asia). Each region has its own management team and you will become an important part of the regional set up and remain within that region for the duration of your time on the graduate programme and, we hope, for many years to come.

Throughout all of your placements you'll be supported by a mentor, who'll be a senior manager within the business. The Engineering and HR leads for your region will also work with you to develop your career. But it'll be up to you to take control of your future and fulfil your ambitions.

Once you reach the end of the two years, we'll expect you to move into a permanent role in your region. This is when we'll really see what you're made of and what you can bring to IMI, as you build your career with us.

If you're ready to take control of your future, head to our Requirements page for application details.
