We currently have exciting Apprenticeship opportunities across our business. These are available in our Operations and Engineering departments. Following successful completion of the scheme, you will be in a permanent role in either our Engineering or Operations teams.
Opportunities are available at our Rotherham site.
What will I be doing?
Our Operations and Engineering scheme is a 4 year programme with the first year being delivered at a specialist training facility. You will learn basic engineering and craft skills, giving you a great foundation to progress. You will then join us on site, based within our training team where you will undertake more formal in-house training for the next three years with our Operations or Engineering teams. You will then specialise in a particular field of either Operations or Engineering with the opportunity to complete some additional formal qualifications in your chosen area.
Typically, following this scheme you will be in either a Maintenance Tradesperson or Process Operator role.
What qualifications will I get?
Many of our apprentices go on to do further qualifications, continuing to develop their careers with us.
What are we looking for?
