The Shepley Group are proud of the strong apprenticeship programme we operate, developing the next generation and the communities they work in, because our future relies on theirs.
Our people are key to success. We aim to invest in and develop top-class talent to meet our customers’ requirements, bridge the skills gap and enable local communities to flourish.
We have a proven history of internal progression, our Managing Director started as a pipefitting apprentice in 1995, and several members of our Board of Directors come from apprentice backgrounds.
We continually develop our employees to enable them to achieve their full potential, and over 10% of our current workforce are in earn-and-learn positions, from school leaver apprenticeships to Masters’ graduates.
Our apprentice roles
With an apprenticeship you get paid while you gain job-specific training and experience. If you’re ready to develop and push yourself further as a high performing person, apply for an apprenticeship and play your part in helping us build a legacy of excellence. You could be the future of Shepley Engineers.
