We are world leaders in the markets we serve and our customers are a pretty big deal too, some of which we are sure you will have heard of ie. UK Power Networks, Network Rail, Scottish Power, Siemens and UKAEA (UK Atomic Energy Authority) and the Royal Navy to name a few.


Opportunity awaits!

Are you innovative, driven to learn and enthusiastic? We have so many opportunities here at IST the possibilities are endless. We want to empower the next generation of electrical/mechanical design engineers, production engineers, test engineers, project managers and production engineers to continue our upward trend and take us further with the innovation of products, materials, design and production methods.  We are super passionate about our products and our future.  It’s an exciting time for the world of power and power innovation and we want you to be part of it.

Where to start?

Apprenticeships: Based on the local education system in either Leicester or Manchester, apprenticeships combine on-the-job trainings and college activities - often leading to a final qualification. We currently employ L2 engineering operative apprentices, but we are open to consider any relevant courses that interest you, so get in touch and start your career with us at IST!


Placements and Graduate Schemes: Our graduate scheme is open to both those in their final year of university, and those who have already graduated. To apply, we ask you to have achieved or be working towards a 2:1 Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in an engineering or technical subject area.  Grades below 2:1 will be considered given relevant skills and experience are demonstrated. Our team will support you all the way and help you to develop your skills, but you should also have a proactive and self-motivated attitude, with the ability to work on your own initiative and take responsibility and accountability for your work and development.  We also offer internships (also for bachelor's or master's thesis research) and summer jobs.
