Careers

Executive talent. Worldwide connections. Leadership access.

Providing opportunities for Graduate Trainees is an essential part of our strategy to develop the skills base within our organisation and most sites offer such opportunities.

Our preference is for Graduates who are aiming towards a 2:1 or higher, BSc or MSc in a  relevant degree. We are looking for Graduates who have undertaken a 3 or 4 year programme ideally including a year’s work experience in a manufacturing or commercial environment. If your degree had a shorter work placement, then we will be looking for relevant experience. We take pride in offering opportunities for career moves in any of the 14 countries in which we have main sites. For this, we are keen to look for graduates with a second language.

From the outset you will be provided with a structured training plan consisting of corporate training programmes, product awareness and any technical requirements, as a Graduate you will follow a two-year training programme. Cummins offer employees generous training grants for postgraduate qualifications and will, wherever possible, support you to achieve chartered or professional status.

Graduates receive a range of benefits. A very competitive starting salary is only the beginning. Graduates have six monthly reviews which, if successful, can result in bonus payments. In addition we offer 25 days paid holiday, option for pension scheme, share purchase scheme, bonus participation as well as local benefits such as free parking and subsidised meals at most sites. During your graduate scheme you can join a buddy scheme or get a mentor assigned for guidance and support.

Along with our traditional 2 year graduate programme, we run a number of highly desirable graduate rotational programmes in Sales & Marketing and Finance which comprise of four 6 month rotations across all of our business units.

Graduates are exposed to confidential projects fuelling the international success of our business units. Your competitive analysis and assessment of the marketplace will be tested daily by complex global scenarios in competitive business environments. You will develop into a cross functional, multi-cultural executive positioned to lead Cummins global management team well into the future.

You will learn what we mean by Working Right. How innovative technology, reducing impact on our environment, corporate responsibility and building success within every community is the essence of Cummins.
