A two-year graduate programme to help bolster the talent pool in the UK’s fast-growing battery sector has been launched by the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre (UKBIC).
The Manufacturing and Technology/R&D schemes are for individuals who have completed an under- or postgraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) qualification in an industry-relevant subject or in subjects related or relevant to the rotations the programme offers.
The Coventry-based national battery manufacturing development facility, has opportunities in:
- Commercial – finance, procurement, HR, business development, PR & marketing
- Manufacturing engineering / operations
- Technology / research and development
The programme will last for two years with each role or project rotation made every three to six months, whereby graduates work with senior and experienced colleagues from the battery sector, either working for UKBIC, its customers or suppliers.
Ciaran Price, talent acquisition specialist at UKBIC, said: “Our graduate programme is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door of this exciting, fast-growing industry which, according to the Faraday Institution, predicts that by 2040 could employ in the UK upwards of 270,000 people in electric vehicle manufacturing, gigafactories and the battery supply chain.”
UKBIC provides UK battery manufacturing scale-up and skills for the battery sector, and is used by organisations working on batteries for applications including electric vehicles, rail, aerospace, industrial and domestic equipment and static energy storage.
