Recruitment process:


Search our full list of apprentice vacancies and follow the on-screen process to apply online. We’ll keep in touch with you by email, so make sure you give us the right address and complete all sections marked with an *. The application form may take you some time to complete – don’t worry, you can save what you’ve done and come back to it later. We don’t see your application until you submit it. 


We’ll send you an email to let you know we’ve received your application, before reviewing it. We’ll let you know how your application is going, mainly by email.


  • Psychometric testing:
    If you’re shortlisted, you may be asked to complete a range of online ability tests.
  • Interview/assessment centre:
    If successful we’ll invite you for an interview and possibly an assessment centre, this varies by discipline. Should you attend an assessment centre which is delivered virtually or in person, you will be engaging with fellow candidates and managers and will be given a series of tasks and activities to complete.

Offer of employment:

We normally make an offer of employment shortly after the interview/assessment centre. If you’re joining a division where you need security clearance, you’ll need to complete that process first, which takes 10 to 12 weeks.

The only way to apply is through our website, but if you have any questions about the status of your application – or if you have any special requirements – contact us at [email protected]. All applications are reviewed in the order they are received, so don’t delay in submitting yours.
