Fancy joining an award winning apprenticeship scheme?

As a building services design engineer (electrical) you will work within a team of experienced engineers and assist with the design of various installations found in buildings such as the lighting, power and security to bring buildings to life!

Imagine yourself in an amazing building. Take away the lighting, heating, ventilation, lifts, escalators, plumbing, power supply, energy systems and the security and safety systems... All that is left is a cold, dark, empty shell! Without building services design engineers these spaces would not be brought to life!

Training Programme Requirements

  • Commit to goals and objectives of a career development programme including attendance of in-house and external technical and non-technical training

  • Familiarise and learn about sustainable low energy initiatives and to share this with other members of your team and wider within the Partnership

The Apprenticeship

You will attend college 1 day per week to study for a foundation degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at North West Regional College.  In addition, you will develop your professional knowledge and experience within the workplace, to demonstrate the achievement of the required knowledge and behaviours which will lead to End Point Assessment to become an accredited with an engineering Professional Body at the end of your apprenticeship.

This is a permanent opportunity; the apprenticeship is just the start of your journey to ultimately achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. There will be opportunities to progress onto a Level 6 BEng (Hons) degree apprenticeship to continue academic progression and routes to Level 7 MEng / MSc.
