Our company

Howdens Joinery was founded in Yorkshire in 1995. In its first year of operation it had just 14 depots and sales of £1m. Today, Howden Joinery Group has grown to become the UK's leading supplier of kitchens, with the largest kitchen rigid cabinet manufacturing capacity in Europe. It employs over 9,000 people, has over 700 depots nationwide and generates annual sales of over £1.4 billion and it is still growing. The Supply Division is responsible for inspirational design and development, sourcing, manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and providing aftersales support to service their one customer, the depot.

What’s on offer

We believe that having the right people in our business is critical to our continued success and will help secure our future. This is why we have invested in the development of an Internship Programme across various functions of Howdens. 

The position is based at one of our manufacturing sites in Howden or Runcorn, and is either a one year internship or three month placement starting summer 2020. You will be assigned an experienced engineer to mentor you throughout the internship / placement.

Exposure will be real, allowing you to make a difference and you will be given real accountability.  You will have clear responsibilities of your own and will support continuous improvements, through developing and applying your engineering skills, on £1k to £10m engineering projects that range from production line improvements to installations of new processes and plant.

We’re a growing business and on the lookout for new engineers with tenacity, the ability to break new ground, find the next game-changing improvements and continue to push our engineering function to deliver even better results. We are looking for bright, ambitious and motivated individuals who can demonstrate the potential to become an integral part of the business.

We offer a competitive salary with excellent benefits including bonus and a free canteen. 

How do you measure up?

To be successful in your application, you will have:

  • Be on course to achieve at least a 2.1 degree in mechanical, manufacturing or a related engineering field
  • Excellent communication and relationship skills
  • A natural desire to problem solve
  • Planning and organisational skills
