Where are they now?

Our UK Graduate Development Programme is just the beginning of a successful career at Siemens. Hear from the people who found that out for themselves.


Benjamin Cupit

Engineering Graduate of the Year 2016

“I shadowed senior management meetings, met the Managing Director, went out with the engineers to see what we did in the field, and was taken by other managers to meet customers. I was also given my own project to do at the start when I wasn’t busy with other work, and was put into the leadership team within a few weeks of being here so I could mix and interact with the other managers in the company.”


Application requirements

What do I need?

We’re looking for bright, inquisitive graduates who have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or equivalent. The ideal person will have:

  • Completed a relevant degree, usually in an Engineering or a Business related subject, with a 2:2 or higher.
  • A desire to contribute in a challenging and diverse environment.
  • A motivating and inspiring personality – and wants to make change happen.

How do I apply?

If you think you’re suitable, complete our online application and our online testing. Once you’ve completed that, we’ll see if we think you’re a good fit. If so, we’ll arrange a video interview to find out more about you. Pass that and you’ll be asked to come and take part in some exciting challenges that put your skills to the test. This could be anything from group exercises to presentations.

Frequently asked questions

What else do I need to know?

Want some more information about the UK Graduate Development Programme? Here are some of our most asked questions. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, drop us a message on Twitter or Facebook.

I've applied for a role, when am I likely to hear back?

When you submitted your application, you should have received an email from us acknowledging your application. We normally review applications once the closing date has passed, however if a role is advertised for an immediate start you may hear from us sooner.

We’ve found that online testing is a good, objective indicator of how successful graduates will be when they join. Our online system allows you to complete the tests in your own time and in a convenient place.

Unfortunately not. Candidates will only be given one opportunity (per academic year) to complete the test. However once you’ve passed it, you won’t be required to retake it for any further applications made that year. Just let your recruiter know this when applying.

Because of the high volume of applications we receive, it’s not possible to supply feedback at application and testing stages. However, if you’ve attended an assessment centre or interview and you would like feedback, we’ll happily provide it.

Yes. You’ll get reasonable expenditure reimbursed. If in doubt, check the details with us before you incur any costs.

Please let us know if you need us to adjust our processes – we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.

Simply log into the Siemens careers page and update your profile. Your details will then be updated and saved.

Absolutely. Please visit the Employee Referral Programme intranet site before your friend applies online.

Your recruiter will provide you with email updates throughout the recruitment process, so if you have any specific queries regarding your application, please contact them.

We have opportunities in Engineering, Business, Finance, IT and more. Search our career opportunities to find a role that suits you.

Of course. Usually an undergraduate degree is the minimum requirement for most roles but we always welcome Masters students to apply to Siemens.

Yes, we’re an A-rated sponsor under Tier 2 of the UK Immigration Points Based System (PBS). In the UK, we hire people based on merit and accept applications from both European Economic Area (EEA) and non-European Economic Area students. However you must have (or be able to obtain) the right to work in the UK.

Yes. If you already have a degree and are still relatively near the beginning of your career, you’re welcome to apply for a graduate role here, and we’d encourage you to speak to your line manager during this process.
