After your program ends
Having successfully completed an apprenticeship program, our apprentices have the opportunity to become permanent employees at CCEP in their chosen career. Since 2017, 85% of our apprentices have chosen to continue their career with us. Others have made the decision to go into higher education full time, having gained valuable insight into the world of work.
We are committed to the continued development of our apprentices beyond the end of their programs as we help to build them into future leaders within CCEP. In 2021, all of our apprentices will be given the opportunity to continue their studies once they have completed their program – gaining a degree with one of our university partners. Options for degree apprenticeships include Engineering, Supply Chain Management or Business Management.
