What you will do in your working day

  • Our apprenticeship programmes are a great way to earn while you learn. We offer you the ideal mix of developing hands-on engineering experience in a fast-paced, dynamic working environment alongside gaining a formal engineering qualification.  
  • Working alongside our power team, you’ll be involved in the planning, installation and maintenance of power generation equipment.

Why join us as an apprentice? 

Our programme is designed to give you a wide variety of professional experiences. You’ll work in an Aggreko depot and client sites, with opportunities to also support at world-class events.

Although we're sixty years old, it doesn't feel like it when you work here. You can expect the professionalism and high standards of a larger company – yet you won’t be pigeon-holed into a narrow role. 

The sense of teamwork is unique – ‘together’ is one of our core values – and we make sure people feel welcome and included, so they can be themselves at work. 

The training you will be getting

  • You’ll follow a three-year apprentice programme linked with Milton Keynes College which will, at a minimum, lead to you attaining an NVQ level 3 qualification. 

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

  • Once you have completed your apprenticeship there will be an option to work in one of our depots or in a field-based role. This could be your local depot or in one of our other national or international locations.
