The Sigma Leadership Programme is our three-year fast-track programme packed full of broad and deep experiences - across multiple business areas - that help aspiring leaders to succeed.

There are two streams within the Sigma programme - business and engineering. Each stream is tailored to enable you to develop the core skills and behaviours to be a business or engineering leader of the future.

This unique programme has only a few places available each year, which is why we carefully consider who we recruit; we need individuals with the potential to lead our company into tomorrow. That means you'll need to be able to build strong relationships with people quickly, working collaboratively to get the most effective results.

The Sigma Leadership Programme offers no blueprint or structured path to follow, so you'll also need to be driven and self-motivated to succeed.

Arranging your own roles, which will typically last between 6-12 months, you might find yourself undertaking an international assignment, or working at one of our customer sites. Through these hands-on, intensive secondments to different businesses and projects you'll rapidly gain a diverse range of experience, knowledge and skills. You'll also have accountability and responsibility to make a difference to our businesses.

Upon completion of the Sigma Leadership Programme, you'll be expected to take on a substantive role at an executive level.

Rewards: the complete package

Joining us means you'll be expected to make a real impact. In return, you can expect a reward package that delivers:

- Starting salary of £30,000
- £2,000 welcome payment
- Regular development reviews

- Car lease and share schemes
- 20% of salary available up front as an optional advance
