Pendennis Graduate Training Programme 2022

The Pendennis Graduate Trainee Programme is offered to suitably qualified people to help support future growth and succession planning within the shipyard. Successful candidates will embark on a programme designed to support their introduction to project management, enabling them to take their first steps within the exciting superyacht industry with potential to develop as Project Managers & Engineers or within the Technical Team at Pendennis.

Candidates will gain experience, knowledge and understanding by moving around the organisation through a structured two-year programme, completing various projects during this time. The successful graduates will initially ‘shadow’ experienced staff across the different departments to develop an awareness of the company as a whole. During this time, you will also gain a thorough appreciation of the processes used to develop a superyacht and if successful, the graduate can expect to progress within the Pendennis Management structure.

  • Degree level qualification. Ideally in Naval Architecture/Mechanical or Electrical Engineering
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Self-motivated, organised, reliable, and adaptable.
