Apprenticeships and Early Career
We offer apprenticeships at several of our UK-based companies, providing hands-on experience, a career path, a salary, and the opportunity to gain recognized qualifications while you work. We also have other job opportunities across the UK.
Individuals entering the business will join a motivated operational team and gain knowledge and understanding of a range of operational, or manufacturing and engineering practices. We provide all of our apprentices with mentoring support.
Initially, apprentices will involve being trained in manufacturing disciplines to gain a product understanding and contribute to the company output. Following this, the opportunity to evolve into production engineering exists in order to work on design, development of new and existing products, process engineering, and supporting complex manufacturing tasks.
At our Torquay site, we design and manufacture best-in-class fiber optics components and modules, for a worldwide customer base of industrial, aerospace, and life science OEMs. Our products are used in a diverse range of applications including undersea intercontinental telecoms cabling, medical diagnostic and surgical equipment, oil and gas pipeline security, and aircraft refueling.
We provide a robust and effective apprenticeship program. The hard work of the site management has resulted in the program being recognized as one of the most effective in South Devon. Our work in this areas allows us to strengthen both our workforce for future years and develop the skill base of the local community.
We are proud to celebrate our recently graduated apprentices for 2021. Kieran Nemo & Ollie Hemus successfully completed all the educational and photonics-based training, qualifications, over the last four years, linked with South Devon College. This has established them as key skilled, reliable and enthusiastic members supporting manufacturing, engineering, procurement, etc., acknowledged by all members across the site.
Their impressive progression has now enabled them to take up full-time roles at G&H Torquay and we wish Kieran and Ollie every success in their future careers with us.
Early career opportunities: undergraduates, graduates and post-graduates
Our breadth and depth of technology expertise and manufacturing capabilities provide a range of opportunities for people seeking to start a career in hi-tech engineering, product management and operations.
Internships and project-based work-placements, temporary summer vacation jobs through to individually tailored graduate/postgraduate training and development programs are available at different locations within the Group.
We’re especially interested to hear from graduates and post-graduates in physics, electrical/electronics, mechanical and processing engineering and science.
