Overview: <ul> <li><span style="color: #000000;">Our Functional Excellence stream for engineers is a structured, closely monitored, two to three year rotational program. </span></li> <li><span style="color: #000000;">The program will be a series of six month rotations in various disciplines, and will allow you to explore some of Cobham&rsquo;s offices located in California, Arizona, Iowa, New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.</span></li> <li><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="color: #000000;">The duration of the program is customized to fit your needs as well as the needs of the business. The recruitment and selection process comprises online application, video interview, online test and assessment centre</span></span></li> <li><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="color: #000000;">How quickly you are taken through the process will be dependent on assessment centre dates, although the sooner you apply the more likely it is you&rsquo;ll be considered for the assessment centre and therefore selected to join the program.</span></span></li> </ul>
Responsibilities: <ul> <li>No matter what area you choose to go into, you can count on maximum exposure to our technology and global culture, so you&rsquo;ll be required to complete placements across at least three of our divisions.</li> <li>Where you are placed in the US depends on your career aspirations and what stream you decide to follow, but wherever you go with us you&rsquo;ll find support and development opportunities, regular reviews and frequent training sessions.</li> <li>The program is big in its scope and goals, but not overly so - everyone knows each other, and you&rsquo;ll have plenty of time to build your social and professional networks.</li> <li>Throughout the program, you'll have regular performance and development reviews with your assignment manager.</li> <li>You'll also be given a mentor who will provide personal and professional support, and a development log that will help you keep track of your progress.</li> <li>And if you want to gain a relevant professional qualification, such as chartered status or a professional certification, we'll support you all the way.</li> <li>At the end of the program, you'll have the opportunity to apply for a permanent position anywhere within the business. Where you end up is up to you, but in a company as diverse as ours, you'll always have interesting opportunities. What&rsquo;s more, every placement you take part in will be vastly different from the others, and there&rsquo;ll never be any doubt that the work you&rsquo;re doing is adding significant value to the company.</li> </ul>
Requirements: <ul> <li><span style="color: #000000;">If you will have the right to work in the US at the time of starting your employment, and at least a 3.5 GPA in an undergraduate discipline, we want to hear from you &ndash; even if you have a few years of work experience. </span></li> <li><span style="color: #000000;">We're looking for enthusiasm, an innovative spirit and the kind of big ideas that will help shape the future of Cobham and make a difference in the communities we work in. </span></li> <li><span style="color: #000000;">In return, you&rsquo;ll have the chance to show us what you can do right from day one, as well as receive plenty of executive exposure in order to give you the skills you need to become a future leader.</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="color: #000000;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Please be advised, Cobham do not offer sponsorship.</span></p>
