1E Graduate Training Scheme – An Update

1E Graduate Training Scheme – An Update

One aspect of the 1E Graduate Training Scheme I love, is that we want to reflect the open and collaborative nature of working within 1E Engineering. We endeavour to expose the graduates to working with senior team members beyond their direct product team and mentor(s). This allows them see and hear ideas from a different perspective, to see that within Engineering there are no barriers to juniors and senior members interacting, and even challenging each other respectfully – truly reflecting [...]
