Job Description

Build invaluable engineering skills, working alongside our experts as well as studying towards a degree. You’ll gain the kind of all-round experience that will enable you to choose where your interests lie so you can specialise when the programme comes to an end.

Responsibilities

The programme:

Join our Engineering Degree Apprenticeship programme and, while you're working towards a bachelor’s degree, you'll also be getting valuable real-world experience. By the time you finish, you'll have achieved your degree and you'll be ready, on a practical level, to start taking your career development to the next level.

What you’ll do:

All the way through your degree apprenticeship, you'll be working alongside exceptional engineering professionals. You'll gain a firm foundation in engineering principles, before going on to placements in different areas of the company. These generally last four months each, which allows you to develop a real understanding of what working in that area means.

We recruit Engineering Degree Apprentices into a number of different areas. In all of them, you'll enjoy on-and-off-the-job training and outstanding opportunities to progress. Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship, you’ll have a good idea of where you want to focus. For example, you could be a Design Engineer, Stress Engineer, Development Engineer, a Service Engineer or a Lifecycle Engineer.

Future Prospects

With the chance to get practical experience with our engines or products, we offer the sort of exciting, real-world exposure that you simply can’t get anywhere else.

Reality Check

What you’ll get:

  • A competitive salary
  • A competitive pension and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
  • Exceptional career support from day one
  • Support towards a BEng Honours degree

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week). For more information please visit: https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates

Skills Required

Beyond your academic qualifications, we'll be looking for evidence that you're creative, an agile thinker and genuinely enthusiastic about developing a career in engineering. For example, we'd like to hear about an engineering project you've done at school or work, or a club you've been involved with or in your spare time.

Qualities Required

You'll be analytical, methodical and an innovative problem solver, as well as articulate, driven and a fast learner.

Qualifications Required

What you’ll need:

120 UCAS points (with a maximum of 8 points from AS Level) including at least a C/4 in maths and either Physics, Chemistry, Engineering or Engineering/IT-related Technology A Level (obtained or predicted). Alternatively, you could have an engineering-focused Level 3 extended BTEC at DDM minimum. You’ll also need GCSEs (or equivalent) at C/4 in English Language and grade B/5 in maths.
