Graduate Jobs with Nicholsons Sealing Technologies

Nicholsons Sealing Technologies offer a range of Engineering Graduate Jobs at their base in County Durham. With over 80 years experience of product and process engineering design and production, the company is the global specialists in the design and manufacture of high temperature metal seals, gaskets and ancillary components for the aerospace, automotive, turbocharger, oil and gas, power generation, and process industry sectors.

During the first month of the Graduate Programme, candidates will complete a series of orientation placements across the business to provide the context from business, administration, support, compliance and operational perspectives. During these placements, the Graduate Engineer will be encouraged to understand the importance of roles and functions within the wider business and the need for contribution and alignment to meet the needs of customers. Month 2 focuses on production engineering tools and skills, and placements within the department will include product and process familiarisation as well as working closely alongside the PE team.

The real challenge begins in month 3, when you will be tasked with an individual 10 month project targeting improvement of Nicholsons’ current production processes. Utilising academic skills acquired during your degree, leveraging the deep experience of the wider Production Engineering team, and performing engineering analysis, physical trials, modelling and testing, you will be expected to research, analyse and create real added value in the area of tool and process design. Whilst challenging and not for the faint-hearted, the opportunity and real possibility that your first engineering project could both contribute significantly to Nicholsons’ knowledge base and be incorporated into live manufacturing processes upon completion is unrivalled: this opportunity cannot be understated.

By working in a rapidly growing multi-national business with operations in the US, UK and Europe, you will have the chance to develop your skills and experience across a wide range of industry sectors with demanding blue-chip clients and in challenging aero-engine, subsea and research applications. Nicholsons’ commitment to full value-stream vertical integration means that research, product design, process development, lean manufacturing, chemical/thermal processing, logistics and supply chain management are typically carried out from single locations.

This benefits customers in providing full life-cycle, qualified, turn-key sealing solutions at rapid lead-times, and benefits Graduate Engineers in that they can experience the full product realisation and qualification process from inception to customer delivery & installation.
