MANUFACTURING MANAGEMENT MASTER’S DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP

Learn how to translate engineering ideas into reality, all whilst gaining a debt-free Master’s degree.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • A passion for manufacturing
  • Fast learner and motivated

Beyond your qualifications, we'll be looking for evidence that you're genuinely interested in developing a career in a manufacturing environment. For example, we'd like to hear about how you tinker with cars, bicycles or motorbikes; or about an engineering project you've done at school, or an engineering club you've been involved with. Whatever it is, we need to know you've thought things through and are fairly sure that this career is right for you.

You’ll be articulate, numerate, and a fast learner who's good at engaging people. We'll also be looking for proof of your drive and motivation, so be ready to talk about your achievements in areas like sports, languages and extra-curricular activities.  

WHAT YOU COULD BE DOING:

Manufacturing is an important part of our business. It’s where innovative engineering concepts and designs get translated into the processes, procedures and supply chains needed to manufacture high-quality products. Ultimately, it’s where creativity gets turned into reality.

Our Manufacturing Management Sponsored Degree Programme offers bright and ambitious individuals the chance to develop outstanding technical skills under the guidance of industry experts. It equips you for a Master’s degree after your first year and doesn’t leave you with student debt – all while giving you exposure to real-life situations and the chance to test yourself alongside the best.

As part of your programme, you'll earn a Master’s degree in Engineering Business Management from the University of Warwick, paid for by us. It will involve residential modules and written and work-based assignments, and you'll study part time alongside your work. It’s not an accelerated route to Charterered Engineer status, although we do expect you to complete your degree in around four years.

You'll also take on placements in different areas of the company, which typically last six months each. These will give you vital skills in areas like forecasting, production planning, supply chain design and management, as well as the management and development of manufacturing, assembly and repair processes and resources.

We open for applications: 4th October 2017 – 2nd March 2018.

WHERE YOU'LL BE BASED:

You'll be based in Derby or Bristol, with residential modules at Warwick University
