Summary of Role:

Raytheon UK is looking for dynamic and high performing Graduates to join their highly successful Project Management Graduate Programme. This is a challenging role that will be highly rewarding and high profile, working across multiple UK sites and interfacing with various project support disciplines and communicating with senior leadership staff.

The role will require excellent interpersonal skills, and high levels of energy and stamina. The successful candidates will be required to work at Raytheon sites for short and extended periods to gain an in-depth understanding of the different business areas and products.
Visits to other Raytheon and customer sites outside the UK and potentially in the US may be required. Raytheon UK’s Project Management career progression certification scheme is fully accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM).

Project Management Main Duties:
Raytheon UK organises its business into projects as a method to respond to the demands of its customers and maintain a competitive market position. Project management is therefore a discipline essential to the performance of the business and Project Managers are responsible for defining, planning, monitoring, controlling, reporting and delivering these projects so that the required benefits are achieved.

Project Managers have overall responsibility for their projects, and are accountable for their successful delivery. This accountability means that Project Managers have to work with other disciplines such as Engineering, Finance, Commercial and Legal to deliver projects that meet both the goals of the business and the goals of the customer. Delivering projects in this context requires the co-ordination of complex interdependencies that need careful consideration.

The role of a Project Manager is to:

  • Assign resources for a project
  • Work with the customer to establish requirements
  • Plan the project lifecycle
  • Set priorities
  • Maintain control of the project (labour, timescales, resources, budget, quality, administration, customer requirements, delegation of tasks)
  • Achieve all of the customer’s and Raytheon UK’s goals on time, to budget and to the required quality.


Graduate Leadership Development Programme Training:
Graduates will start on a structured two-year programme which combines working within the Programme Management function, and completing a variety of Graduate Leadership Development training sessions to develop key skills to become a future leader within Raytheon UK.


Within the two-year programme, Programme Leadership Graduates maybe required to work in other Business Areas, which may be in a different location in the UK, to support development and understanding of the different business areas and products.

Essential:

  • 2:1 or above undergraduate degree (any degree discipline).
