Having high quality, good value products available at the right time for our build programmes is critical to our ability to meet business deadlines. Procurement and Supply Chain Higher Apprenticesgain experience in every area of the function: Procurement, Material Delivery, Logistics & Transport, Strategy, Governance and Capability.

During this three-year higher apprenticeship, you will be responsible for researching, sourcing, buying, storing, maintaining and delivering every piece of equipment that goes onto our products or into our buildings and facilities. Moreover, this must all be delivered at the right time, for the right cost and to the right quality standards.

The projects and placements undertaken by our Procurement and Supply Chain Higher Apprenticesare diverse, from placing purchase orders for multi-million pound contracts, helping to improve policies and procedures, to figuring out how to store the hundreds of thousands of items needed to build our various products. As a result, apprentices develop an in-depth understanding of supply chain activities and processes, plus all the skills needed to become a confident member of the future supply chain function.
