Engineering and Technician Apprenticeships

Royal MailThe Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship is a three-year programme where apprentices have the opportunity to play a big part in developing and rolling out the cutting-edge postal technology we need to deliver a truly world-class mail service – everything from high-tech robotics and intelligent sorting machines to automated reading technology. Based at one of our mail centres, apprentices will gain plenty of hands-on engineering experience, but in the first year, they also spend 30 weeks away on a residential training course, based in Blackburn. While they’re there, apprentices work towards a Level 2 Diploma in engineering operations, a BTEC Diploma in Operations and Maintenance, and complete IOSH Working Safely Course. We are recruiting for 12 apprentices nationally and details of each vacancy are available on our careers site pages (follow the above link).
