Royal Mail Group offers two apprenticeship schemes: the Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship and the Vehicle Technician Apprenticeship Scheme.
Every process that we are involved in - collecting, transporting, sorting and delivering mail – is changing. We’re committed to developing skills that we need to compete and evolve.
Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship
The Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship puts in place the building blocks for apprentices to help us design and to implement the cutting-edge postal technology needed to deliver a world-class service. All of the scheme’s apprentices start by working towards a BTEC in Engineering or Level 3 National Vocational Qualification (NVQ).
Many apprentices go on to become technical leaders or to secure senior management roles within the company. We are making big investments to ensure that we are at the forefront of innovation.
Vehicle Technician Apprenticeship Scheme
Keeping our fleet of 38,000 vehicles on the road is a major challenge – and a crucial aspect of our business. It might look effortless, but in reality it requires the combined endeavour of a crew of specialist maintenance engineers. So, it is no surprise that we are always looking for people with a flair for mechanics and engineering to join our Vehicle Technician Apprenticeship Scheme.
For the first three years of the four-year scheme, apprentices work towards an NVQ Level 3 qualification. For the remainder of the scheme, they take part in a technician training programme that is specifically designed to fit the demanding needs of the Royal Mail Fleet.
Royal Mail Group apprenticeships represent a great way to earn while learning valuable, transferable vocational skills. We are always keen to hear from potential candidates for the schemes, whether they have just left school or college or are in work but looking to take their career in a new direction.
Applications for our 2013 Programme have now closed.
