From your first day, you'll join an unrivalled community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification. 

You'll help us to deliver effective and professional services for a range of varied and high-profile clients.

While you'll have a great deal of responsibility from day one, we'll give you the chance to take on more as you progress and broaden your skills. 

As an Apprentice Technician you'll work closely with a team of engineers.

You will provide technical support as they carry out design work and project management services for the infrastructure and energy businesses.

The team provides design services as part of an Alliance and therefore you will also be involved in activities related to construction, installation, testing & commissioning of new & existing assets from electrical distribution networks, substations, industrial process buildings and more.

  • As part of your apprenticeship, you'll study towards the Level 6 Electrical/Electronic Technical Support Engineer (Degree) qualification.
  • You will undertake a supervised programme of training and block release with a University. You will also be assigned a mentor who you will work and liaise closely with and be there to guide and advise you throughout your time as an apprentice.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

  • When joining us as one of our apprentices, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to study for a paid, professionally-recognised qualification in a discipline that will help you further your career.
  • Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll have access to our online network. You’ll also take internal courses. These cover technical aspects of the business, such as software, but also vital ‘soft’ skills such as report writing and working effectively.
  • Our apprentices are employed on a stable basis, so you'll continue to progress with Arup once you've completed your course.
