Company continues growth in local area
17 January 2014: QinetiQ has announced it is looking to recruit up to 30 new graduate jobs at its site in Malvern across 2014, part of its on-going commitment to investing in the next generation of engineers, scientists and technologists.
The 30 new opportunities in Malvern, where the company’s Security, C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) and Safety & Acquisition Services businesses are based, are part of the overall QinetiQ graduate increase from 59 to 114 places in 2014.
The Security business in Malvern specialises in providing a wide range of cyber protection services to Government and commercial businesses. The C4ISR business has a wide range of technical expertise doing cutting edge research into a wide range of projects such as radar and satellite communications. It provides consultancy and advice to governments around the world, delivering innovative ideas for protecting buildings and people globally. Safety & Acquisition Services deliver independent expert services across the entire acquisition lifecycle that enable value for money acquisitions, compliant with legal and policy requirements.
The new roles in Malvern are now open for applications via the newly launched and refreshed graduate and apprentice recruitment programme, ‘iQ2014’, continuing QinetiQ’s quest to attract the brightest and the best. The graduate programme provides applicants with a structured two year programme providing them with the experience and skills to become the leaders of the future.
The commitment to increasing graduate recruitment forms part of QinetiQ’s drive as a founding member of The 5% Club campaign, a nationwide campaign urging companies across the UK to commit to 5% of their workforce being apprentices, graduates or sponsored students on a formalised training programme within five years.
QinetiQ also offers apprentice programmes, with apprenticeships in engineering, management, facilities and information systems and is also looking to expand disciplines in 2014 into new areas such as Space and Cyber. QinetiQ partners with training providers to deliver Apprenticeships but is also an educational provider in its own right and has an award winning QinetiQ Apprentice Training School at MOD Boscombe Down.
