Job Description

Our role in nuclear defence and what we do to support the UK’s nuclear deterrent, is vital in defending our country from the most extreme threats and to keeping the peace. From developing the warheads for the nuclear deterrent, to providing counter-terrorism and nuclear threat reduction solutions, the work we do is of global importance.


What will the apprentice be doing?

Technical Authors are the specialists who generate written instructions on how to perform all kinds of technical tasks in a safe, controlled way. Your first out-turn year will be spent learning Desktop Publishing, Technical Authorship and applying your C&I knowledge to written work instructions.  You will go on placements around the business learning communication techniques and gain a Diploma in Technical Authorship as you work towards a career in Technical Publications.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As an apprentice you will initially be based within the onsite training facility where you will develop a basic knowledge of C&I and learn the associated skills. Thereafter you will progress to the manufacturing aspect of your training where you will start to apply these core skills in a live working environment.  This will include servicing, repairing and installing various systems to support our facilities: temperature control, flow and pressure measurement, display gauges and recorders.  

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

C&I engineers enable a wide range of different automated processes to run. It’s a skill that is in demand across a wide range of industries ranging from car assembly, aircraft maintenance to telecommunications. C&I is one of only two 'critical trades' at AWE and is vital to the success of our mission.
