The Advanced Business Administrator Apprenticeship is a two-year scheme and will offer you the opportunity to gain real experience working in the business areas which support all of our products. Through a combination of ‘off-the-job’ training, reviews and work placements, you will gain exposure to real challenges that support our business.

Responsibilities

You will have the opportunity to learn how to:

  • Deliver your responsibilities efficiently and with integrity
  • Show a positive attitude
  • Work well within a team
  • To demonstrate strong communication skills (both written and verbal)
  • Time management
  • Problem-solving
  • Develop your organisational skills
  • Project management skills

Typically you will be placed within one business area for the duration of your apprenticeship.

Business areas include:

  • Business Development
  • Commercial
  • Manufacturing Operations
  • Procurement
  • Project Management

Future Prospects

A great job after completion. Around 95% of our apprentices choose to stay with us and go on to have really successful careers. You can choose to go for promotion and progression or continue learning in the role you’ve moved into.

When you successfully complete your apprenticeship, we will help you to move into a suitable role, subject to the requirements of the business.

Reality Check

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
