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 recognised qualifications while you work. 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.
