The opportunity

This is a chance to get hands-on experience on some ground-breaking projects. We know that the next big idea could come from anyone, in any role, so there’s every chance it could come from you. Especially because we value fresh perspectives, diverse approaches and different ways of looking at things. Our apprenticeships span the breadth of our engineering disciplines as well as our operations and business teams – all of them are a stepping stone to a rewarding  career with us.

Our school leaver programmes

If you’re completing your GCSEs, we offer a number of Advanced/Modern Practical apprenticeships - Practical, Technical, Associate Project Manager and Procurement. If you’re doing A-levels, we have a range of degree apprenticeships: Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Engineering, Materials Laboratories, Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Commercial, and Digital & Technology Solutions. We also have a Management Accountant training scheme which leads to a CIMA qualification, and a Manufacturing Management sponsored master’s degree programme.

Why join us?

Whichever programme you join, you’ll be working on live projects. You’ll earn as you learn through formal training as well as via practical experiences working alongside technical or business experts. A career with us means applying your curiosity, enthusiasm and creative thinking to the issues that affect our planet today – and helping us overcome the challenges we’ll face tomorrow. This is an opportunity to play your part in pioneering the power that matters.

We recruit, select and develop our people on merit, regardless of age, disability, gender identity or expression, race/colour/nationality/ethnic or national origins, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by applicable legislation.
