ALE invests in the next generation of engineering talent

« Back to news


As part of ALE’s hunt for the next generation of engineering talent, the leadership team from ALE’s UK branch hosted a dynamic assessment event in January 2018.

A total of 24 engineering undergraduates took part across two separate assessment days, completing a total of 11 exercises and tasks which tested their problem solving, communication, presentation, time management, drawing and technical capabilities. From this, five students were invited to join the engineering teams within the Hixon, Middlesbrough and Breda branches on a 12-month industrial placement, starting in the Summer of 2018.

More than 200 candidates applied from universities across the UK. During their 12-month placements, the students will be involved in a range of tasks, both office and site-based.

“In addition to providing valuable support to our engineering functions, the objective of this programme is to spot and engage people who will fit with, and be able to add to the company’s unique engineering capability once they have completed their degree studies. This could be in the UK or in any of ALE’s global locations,” explained Chris Hines, Group Recruitment, Learning and Development Manager.
