Careers

Area of Development

This area of the web site is under development so please be patient whilst we complete it.

Our intention is to attract new people to our industry and retain the knowledge within it. There will be three areas within the Careers site which offer graduates opportunities that exist with training programmes offered by some of the members of the ESA, an area where the ESA members can advertise new positions within their organisations and a third area which allows any individual to post a summary of their qualifications and life experiences. Some of these areas are time controlled and will delete automatically in order to enable us to maintain a live element to the site.

 

Graduate Training Programmes within the ESA

Many of the Member companies within the ESA have graduate training programmes. Below we list a number of such schemes with a link to the company and their respective training programme. There is also an individual perspective from a number of people who work for one of the ESA Members and also hold positions within the ESA. 

The ESA is made up of organisations and companies which in many cases are global, as such they will require individuals for many different disciplines from finance, research, quality, engineering, IT and Sales.

Some of the people within the ESA and their story.

Here are two people with differenet views of their experinces to date working within the Sealing Industry and working with the ESA.  

David Edwin-Scott

  

David is the Technical Director of the Elastomeric & Polymeric Seals Division and the Packings Division within the ESA. His history of working with Sealing Devices is covered by an article written by himself for our news letter entitled the Accidental Sealing Engineer. His knowledge and experience is incredible yet he started off not knowing what to expect. Having travelled the world and enjoyed so many life changing experiences within this industry perhaps you might also want to follow in his footsteps...
