Your buildings have a purpose. 

They are places for people to live or work. Facilities for learning or healing. Venues for entertainment and shopping. Sites for the specialized storage of tangible goods or mission-critical data. Your buildings have a huge variety of functions; they are central to your mission. 

This is where Johnson Controls comes in, helping drive the outcomes that matter most. Through a full range of systems and digital solutions, we make your buildings smarter. A smarter building is safer, more comfortable, more efficient, and, ultimately, more sustainable. Most important, smarter buildings let you focus more intensely on your unique mission. Better for your people. Better for your bottom line. Better for the planet.

At Johnson Controls, we’ve been making buildings smarter since 1885, and our capabilities, depth of innovation experience, and global reach have been growing ever since. Today, we offer the world’s largest portfolio of building products, technologies, software, and services; we put that portfolio to work to transform the environments where people live, work, learn and play.

An Engineering apprenticeship with Johnson Controls will see you building new skills, while applying your knowledge to real-world projects. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore your potential and you will enjoy full support from your line manager and a mentor.

We are offering full-time permanent apprenticeship opportunities for those looking for a genuine alternative to university and are passionate about engineering. The apprenticeship will combine on-the-job work experience, with time at college to achieve a qualification in your chosen engineering field.

Our apprenticeship scheme will vary in duration from 2 years to 4 years, depending on the course selected, with start dates planned for August 2021. We aim for all apprenticeships to lead to permanent positions within Johnson Controls.
