During the apprenticeship you can expect on-the-job training, formal classroom learning and practical experience as part of ‘Team Hinkley’ which will give you the confidence and satisfaction of being part of a successful forward-looking team, focused on safety and quality to support plant operations.

On site at Hinkley Point B you’ll complete a number of short assignments to provide an appreciation of the main supply chain functions and, with our support, you’ll also study for a Warehousing and Storage Level 2 Apprenticeship on day release at Weston College.

This apprenticeship provides the foundation knowledge, skills and experience for the role of Supply Chain Warehouse Operative.

Joel Jackson’s experience, Nuclear Business Apprentice

“It’s been brilliant getting to work with a variety of people. Those individuals imparting their knowledge has certainly benefitted me and developed my personal skills and technical skills over the two years. The structure of the scheme has allowed them both to work in parallel and it’s been brilliant.”
