Diamond is able to offer engineering apprenticeship placements in a facility supporting ground-breaking research in the life, physical and environmental sciences.
Diamond can offer apprentices the chance to get involved in very high spec electronics and controls systems, mechanical manufacture and maintenance, along with many other relevant activities to develop and increase their engineering skills. At the end of a four year course (which includes 1 year at college) an apprentice will be well equipped with relevant skills for their chosen career path along with extensive experience of working in a sophisticated cutting edge facility.
Diamond has been part of the scheme since the facility opened, but the scheme itself has been operating successfully at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory for over 2 decades. It is regarded as one of the best engineering apprenticeships in the country. The scheme is run by Science Technology Facilities Council.
For full information on the scheme and information on how to apply, the required grades and information on other placement locations within the apprenticeship, please see the STFC Apprenticeships webpage.
