  • To perform analysis of microbiology samples
  • To prepare microbiological media, for the testing of laboratory samples, and to provide to the Logistics Department, for client sampling

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

Success in this role could lead to senior vacancies such as Team Leader or Management roles. If you fancy a role which is more customer focused instead, but at the same time will allow you to implement the knowledge you’ve gained during your apprenticeship, then our Customer Service team could be a great match for you also. Or, if you like to explore different divisions of the business, you can cross over to other departments.
