British Sugar offer apprenticeship opportunities in four industrial areas; Mechanical, Electrical, Process and Combustion Engineering and each annual intake will specialise in one of the four areas depending on our needs. For September 2018, the focus for our intake will be Electrical Engineering. Our apprenticeship programme is four years, consisting of the following structure:

  • Initial residential training period (up tp two years) living with other British Sugar apprentices studying a mixture of theory and practical qualifications.
  • Experience at one of four factory sites
  • The final assessment and professional discussion 
  • An 'outward bound' course to learn confidence, team working, leadership, and communication skills

What's in it for me?

  • Learn whilst you earn with a starting salary of £10,886
  • Residential training where you live and learn with other British Sugar apprentices
  • Nationally recognised qualifications
  • Lots of support and training to encourage self-awareness, and develop other skills such as communication, self-management and teamwork to name a few

After successful completion of the apprenticeship programme starting salary on appointment of £37,213
