An apprenticeship with AWE is a great way to get your career off the ground. It will give you all the skills and training you’ll need to pursue a varied and exciting role in engineering and technology.
You will be part of our company, which has a very unique role in supporting the defence and security of the United Kingdom. To do this to the best of our ability means we must nurture the right skills and expertise. Our apprenticeship schemes are designed to do just that.

When attending an interview, you’ll need to bring two forms of personal identification, one must be photographic. Ideally, this should be your UK passport and either your birth certificate or your photographic driving licence. You’ll also need to bring any non-UK passports.
Once you have been interviewed, we will review all the information collected during the process and make a decision.
If you are successful we will contact you directly to let you know the outcome of your interview and you’ll receive an offer letter. You will then need to go through:
You can start the security clearance process by completing an online security questionnaire – we’ll give you guidance once you’ve received an offer letter from us. While the security clearance is being processed, you’ll be invited to a pre-employment and medical visit. You will find this is a great opportunity to meet some of your colleagues before you start.
