Is the apprentice programme right for you?

An apprenticeship is a smart alternative route for students who want to start their career and learn from industry experts from day one. As an apprentice you’ll benefit from early responsibility enabling you to reach your career goals whilst studying towards academic and industry accredited qualifications. If you are school leaver interested in a career in science, engineering, manufacturing, or business operations in a global company like ours, then one of our apprentice programmes could be perfect.

Real experience of a world-class business

You'll choose the area of our business to start your apprenticeship in, depending on where your strengths and interests lie. Whichever part of the the business you join, you’ll get hands-on experience, and you’ll play a role in helping us to achieve our goals.

I’ve always been a person that learns better with a more hands-on approach. Taking an apprenticeship over university was a no brainer for me as it meant on the job training by people who are experts in their fields, whilst still getting a university qualification. I feel that my experiences working in the pharmaceutical industry and my degree have been a fantastic way to kick-start my career in research.
