Meet our graduates

Below stories from just some of our talented graduates who have gained permanent positions within the company both through the Graduate Development Programme, and applying directly.


Meet Katie

I joined the Graduate Development Programme after completing my degree in Textile Science and Technology at Manchester University. The scheme gives you the freedom to explore lots of different roles within the company and the flexibility to delve into areas that interest you. Coming from a textile background, I found this gave me a great opportunity to learn about the different processes involved in producing a finished fabric. After 9 months, I was placed as a Development Engineer focussing on timing belts.”

Meet Nikhil

"I have a combined Undergraduate and Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London. Shortly after leaving university, I developed a strong interest in body thermal management and heat protection in extreme environments. I now work as a Development Engineer for Personal Protective Equipment and my main focus is carrying out conceptual development for new innovative ways to provide greater protection and functionality for firefighting apparel."

Meet Will

"I studied Human Biology at Loughborough University before joining the Graduate Development Programme. The scheme was a varied and interesting programme and gave me a great opportunity to kick-start my career. After only a short period of time I became a permanent member of the team as a Deputy Production Manager. If you’re looking for professional development & leadership experience for an international company, this is the right scheme for you!"
