The role will be in an environment regulated by Trade Control legislation and involve working with controlled goods, technology and/or services. This may require you to meet enhanced security and regular screening checks.
Successful applicants will be required to pass an online company assessment followed by college assessments at Chippenham College prior to their applications being progressed to final stage.
Please note that if you are also applying for a different apprenticeship within the company, a separate application for that apprenticeship will be required.
