With the skills you’ll learn in our scheme, you will be well on your way to becoming a professional in this growing industry.  


Build skills for the future  

In this apprenticeship, you’ll need to ensure we provide all our customers with top-quality service while ensuring compliance requirements are followed. It’s also important to consider the safety of our engineers, which is why this is such a crucial role in our business. Here are some of the tasks you could be owning:  

  • Guide the business on where partners might cause risk, such as meeting delivery requirements or on Health & Safety issues.  
  • Ensure partners align with industry standards to mitigate risks avoiding any penalties or fines.  
  • Account for environmental risks to ensure partners are meeting environmental waste requirements.  


What we look for  

A can-do attitude. Great organisation skills. Attention to detail. These are all skills that are vital for this apprenticeship. You’ll also need to have excellent communication and people skills as you’ll be liaising with different teams and stakeholders to ensure compliance rules are met. An interest in building and/or construction would be helpful as understanding industry standards is something needed to really succeed. A driving licence is also essential for this scheme as you may be required to travel every now and then. 

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right to work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support.  


What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship? 

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job.  As a result, you’ll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us. 


What’s in it for you  

During the programme, you’ll work towards a Project Management Level 4 Apprenticeship, which is secured with a final assessment, as well as the association of project management qualification (APM PMQ).  You’ll also be able to enjoy some amazing benefits, including:  

  • Company pension  
  • 25 days holiday
