Graduate Power Engineering Programme 

In this digital age with the proliferation of electronic devices and smart grid developments there has never been such a need for power engineers with strong skills in power quality problem identification and mitigation. Premium Power’s Graduate Development Programme gives recent graduates in electrical engineering the opportunity to start their career as power engineers in a supportive and challenging environment.

Premium Power has developed this scheme to optimise the potential of all new recruits starting their career with Premium Power. It is a comprehensive system to ensure the necessary skill development for our permanent full time engineers.

The 24 month programme focuses on development of power engineering skills by technical and personal development training as well as on the job project assignments. At the end of the second year many of these apprentices will be given the opportunity to continue on a programme towards chartered engineer. This may or may not require further education.  This is part of Premium Power’s commitment to personal and professional development of our valued team.
