See our Safran corporate film: our employees are in the best position to talk about Safran!

Imagine working for one of the world’s top innovators, a number one in everything from jet engines, landing systems, helicopter flight controls to optronic systems and nacelles.

Imagine the level of purchasing expertise you would be surrounded by. Imagine the kind of ground-breaking developments you could be involved in.

Imagine what it would be like not just to build a career with that organisation but to have the opportunity to shape and influence where it goes next.

Join the Safran UK Purchasing Graduate Scheme and you don’t have to imagine, the reality will begin.

Safran is a leading international high-technology group, operating worldwide, employing over 66,000 people in 60 countries.

In the UK, Safran offers many opportunities within aerospace for the design, production and maintenance of aircraft landing gear, electrical systems and engine nacelles and plays a significant part in the country’s manufacturing output in this sector.

This two-year programme places you at the heart of our businesses and puts you through a series of intensive placements, one of which is likely to be overseas. These placements are designed to give you maximum exposure to our organisation and help you develop the skills, knowledge and experience you need to progress.

Along the way, you’ll have endless opportunities to make an impact, whether you’re delivering cost and service improvements, developing processes, managing complex projects or devising strategies for indirect spend.  You’ll also benefit from a structured training programme and will be mentored by a senior Safran colleague who will give you personal guidance and advice.

As a Purchasing Graduate, you will be analysing spend, and identifying cost reduction opportunities at all levels. You will be responsible for Achieving purchase targets, setting processes and monitoring external supplier performance and for proposing improvements of tools, processes and procedures, all in the aim of furthering operational excellence.

To make the most of everything we offer, you must have a desire to learn, a hunger to achieve and a willingness to drive your own career development. We are not just looking for someone to do a day-to-day role. We are looking for someone who goes the extra mile to secure the right results. Someone who can build rapport with people at all levels, all over the world. Someone who relishes new challenges and opportunities to innovate. Someone who can become a professional in their field, or in the future look to lead our organisation to greater success.

If that sounds like you, and you have at least a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) in an engineering or business-related subject, then find out more by clicking the apply button below.
