Engineer your career with us

IMI Critical Engineering designs, manufactures and installs customised solutions for new plant builds in vital energy and process industries. It’s an ideal place to be if you’re looking for complex challenges. The valves you produce here will control the flow of steam, gas and liquids in harsh environments, so have to withstand temperature and pressure extremes as well as intensely abrasive or corrosive cyclical operations.

You’ll take on two twelve-month placements, which will provide you with a solid foundation in both engineering and our business, while helping to fuel your personal and professional growth. Areas you’ll cover will include Design Engineering, Inside Sales and Project Management. You’ll also join one of our Growth Accelerator teams, developing solutions for the future.
