Graduate Schemes

  • Engineering

    We have opportunities for engineering graduates, with a September 2020 start date.

    Educated to degree level in Engineering, preferably either Mechanical or Electrical with at least a 2:1, candidates will be self-starters with excellent presentation and communication skills and can demonstrate a passion for engineering.

    As part of a two year training and development programme, graduate engineers can expect to work on every aspect of a project - from concept through design, manufacture and testing to installation and commissioning. 

    This broad appreciation of the different disciplines needed by the company not only enables them to be more effective in their chosen specialisation, but also prepares them for changes of role in the future. As well as the different engineering disciplines, our engineers are able to develop their careers in areas such as sales, project management and purchasing, and many of the company’s most senior managers and directors are engineers.

    We support anyone working towards Chartered Engineer status by providing a mentor and participating in professional development programmes such as the IMechE’s Supported Registration Scheme.

    Baker Perkins relies completely on the skills, professionalism and commitment of its engineers, and in return they can rely on us for complete support in their development.

    We offer a competitive salary (£28,000 per annum initially with regular reviews) and benefits package including:

    • 25 days holiday + 8 bank holidays
    • Pension Scheme (matched contributions up to 6%)
    • Entitled to join the Company’s Private HealthCare Scheme, whereby employee pays 50% and the Company pays 50% of the premiums

    Although based in Peterborough the post may require some overseas travel.

  • Sales / Commercial

    Many Baker Perkins graduates have become senior managers of the company, so we know the importance of supporting and investing in our graduates: they are our future leaders and specialists.

    We offer a structured two year training programme covering the technology, operations and sales functions of the business.

    Future career opportunities could include an external sales role covering an international territory.

    What do we look for?

    Educated to degree level or equivalent in Business Studies and / or Languages, with an interest in engineering, you will be a self-starter with excellent presentation and communication skills together with good commercial awareness. A second language will be an advantage.

    How to apply:

    We usually advertise our sales graduate opportunities in March.

    Our selection process will typically involve a presentation task and interview.
