C-Tech Innovation is proud to be part of the Cheshire Energy Hub, bringing together leading organisations in the power and energy sector in Cheshire. The Hub’s 2016 Graduate Recruitment Scheme is now open, and provides a superb opportunity for new science and engineering graduates to gain experience of working in the sector, and a potential route into a permanent position.
In the 2015 programme C-Tech Innovation recruited Ben Gardiner, who will start working with us on Monday. He will spend six months at C-Tech, followed by two six-month placements with other organisations within the Hub before returning to us for the last six months of the two-year scheme.
Jen Sutton explains in a case study for the Cheshire Energy Hub why C-Tech is such a great place to work:
One of the enjoyable things about working at C-Tech is the wide variety of different projects that we work on ranging from initial stage proof of concept trials, to process development and scale up, all of which use a wide range of the skills from my degree. Since working here I have also added to that skill set, learning new and improving existing knowledge of chemical techniques and analytical equipment including HPLC, GCMS and ICP. The research and development projects that I am involved in vary in duration from 6 months to 4 years long, broadening my field of expertise in a number of different technical areas along the way.
Training and personal development is actively encouraged within the company (both internally and externally) and since I started I have gained experience across many fields including project management, proposal writing and presenting at conferences.
Graduates interested in joining the 2016 scheme can apply through the Cheshire Energy Hub website. The deadline for applications is 30th October 2015, to start in September 2016.
