About the employer

The Energy Group, a family business born from a passion for events and a dedication to customer service back in 2014, had humble beginnings starting out with just one generator but quickly grew to cover hire, sales & haulage. Now, less than a decade later, the group proudly sits as a well-respected market leader in specialist Event Infrastructure as well as covering a diverse range of other sectors like Construction, Film, Television, Military and Utilities.

Based on our exciting growth plans we are now recruiting three individuals to join our new apprenticeship scheme located at our Head Office in Aylesbury. 

An average day for our technicians can range from something as small as the installation of a video projector in a conference room to as large as the full delivery of Audio, Lighting, Video, Generators, Electrical Distribution, Buggies and Plant equipment to a high-capacity music festival or sporting event.
