DNV Anchors Graduate Commitment with Launch of UK Scheme

Monday, December 03, 2012

DNV, the multinational provider of risk management and sustainability services, has established a UK graduate program to develop new talent in the energy and maritime industries.

DNV has welcomed 14 graduates on the scheme this year with plans already in place for a similar intake again in 2013.

The two year program gives graduates an insight to the many areas in which DNV operates and the diversity of services provided by the independent organization. The scheme offers flexibility for graduates to experience different industries and tailor their own career path.

Graduates spend four six month blocks in different teams within DNV to gain broad experience of the company and the disciplines they want to gain expertise in. This gives candidates the chance to work in offices across the UK network. There is also the opportunity to travel around the world on international projects.

Nitesh Amin joined the DNV graduate scheme after graduating from the University of Sheffield.  Currently based in the London performance forecasting team, Nitesh is enjoying the experiences and opportunities that the program offers: “I am part of a team that provides risk analysis for some of the most complex oil and gas processes. It is very exciting and varied, and I’m already involved in working on international projects across different types of assets from onshore to offshore facilities.   

“I have a formal mentor to guide me but the entire team have become mentors to me because they are very supportive and, as a result, I’m learning from everyone I work with. There are many years of experience around me which is helping me develop my career as an engineer. DNV provide challenges and a support structure so that I can be the best engineer possible.”

Throughout the program, graduates have support from experienced mentors in DNV. The company has supported graduate recruitment for a number of years, and has formalised its commitment with the launch of the dedicated scheme.

Christine Maidment, Human Resources Manager  DNV UK, said: “It is vitally important to get fresh talent in the industry to ensure the energy and maritime sectors continue to thrive. Our new UK graduate scheme aims to continue the lifeblood of our organization and graduates bring a valuable new take on the industry and projects. It also helps for us to raise our profile in UK universities as students may know about major operators but don’t necessarily realize the wealth of opportunities at DNV.


“We aim to train the best candidates through the scheme, who will become part of DNV’s core of technical experts and potential future leaders within the organisation. The graduate scheme offers training, mentoring, networking and job rotation opportunities to provide unique experience for graduate development.”
