Are you a graduate engineer looking for something into which you can sink your teeth?

Well, it might interest you to know that MG are looking for some vibrant young minds to work on their next generation of cars.

But they'll have you know that you're not to bother even filling-in the form if you're not up to the challenge.

The work is to take place at the MG Birmingham site. Here MG's parent company – SAIC Motor – have their European Technical Centre.

Up to ten graduates will be offered a two year training programme which includes a fascinating three month placement in China.

Expect competition to be tough! This is a rare opportunity to work for the largest automotive company in China and the eighth largest in the world.

The future seems to belong to China, so this also appears to be an opportunity to ensure that you're allowed to tag along for the ride into prosperity.

If you're successful, you'll be supported to achieve the coveted Chartered Engineer status through a Monitored Professional Development Scheme. You'll be allocated a mentor from a pool of over 300 experienced experts in the field.

The recruitment drive started yesterday at a graduate recruitment event at Coventry University. There'll also be representatives at similar fairs at the NEX in April and June – so if you're interested, you know where to go.

MG HR manager Louise Lane says: “This is a tremendous opportunity that will provide the pathway to a great career in an exciting and challenging industry.

“We are looking for new graduates who will relish the chance of furthering their professional training while making a major contribution to the future of MG and Roewe cars.”

The scheme is due to start in September. They're looking for graduates with a minimum of a 2.1 degree in either engineering or automotive design and promise “an attractive salary and benefits”.

Good luck!
