Engineering firm extends graduate scheme
Aker Kvaener, an engineering services provider, has announced that it is to increase its uptake of graduates this year.

Following on from the success of 12 graduates hired by the firm last year, the company is now looking for 20 university leavers, the Journal reports.

Aker Kvaener specifically looks to employ local graduates who have come from a university near its base in the Tees Valley.

Ian Muscroft, the human resources manager at the firm, stated that the company offers a number of benefits to its employees.

"Our accredited graduate development programme not only provides a structured training programme with progression opportunities by working towards chartered engineering status, but also provides a team-working environment in the form of the graduate forum," he remarked.

He added that a five-a-side pitch is one of the perks of the new offices the company will be moving into this year.

Local universities to the Tees Valley are the University of Teesside, Durham University, the University of Newcastle, Northumbria University and the University of Sunderland.
