MPS Graduates Scheme


Join a Business Revolution Today, Build Smart Factories Tomorrow

We are leading a revolution. From San Diego to Shanghai, the Meggitt Production System (MPS) gives every single one of us a set of tools to maximise performance and creativity wherever we work, from boardroom to factory floor.

At the same time, our pioneering work on intelligent manufacturing is taking us closer to performance gold by bringing the benefits of Industry 4.0 to Meggitt. Looking ahead, smart components in our factories will turn themselves into products using the Internet of Things.

Working with a crack team of the industry’s finest, you’ll get a once-in-a-generation opportunity to help implement the performance revolution across our factories in the Americas, Asia and Europe before managing your own site.

As you travel around the world from placement to placement, you’ll develop world-class skills in the following areas:

continuous improvement, Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma

operations strategy, systems and planning

manufacturing engineering

strategic procurement and supply chain

quality management methodologies and applications

capacity planning

bids and proposals

Master these disciplines and you’ll be ready to manage one of our factories and lead Meggitt manufacturing into the future.

Build Your Future

Recent graduate operations projects include:

‘plan for every part’ strategy design

standard work generation for multiple production lines

Lean training for staff at every level

daily layered accountability management

demand management kaizen

inventory reduction kaizen


Design Your Own Future

Meggitt is global number one or two in more than 25 aerospace and energy capabilities. As you explore our high-tech playground, you’ll learn how to take your hard-won knowledge out of the lab and onto the production line.

With personalised training throughout your four placements, you’ll develop world-class skills in the following areas:

new product development

project and programme management

supply chain support

research and development

strategic growth projects

operations excellence

bids and proposals

Stretched and supported by senior leaders across the business, you might easily unlock a new solution to one of the many pressing challenges facing aerospace and energy today.

Longer term, engineers who want the challenge of more management and commercial responsibility work towards managing the engineering function at division or group level.

Those who prefer to deepen their technical expertise become Technical Fellows, collaborating with world experts on their specialist subjects to keep Meggitt technology ahead.

Either way, if you’ve got what it takes, you’ll find all the opportunities and support you need to get to the top.
