Develop Your Career Through An Apprenticeship



Trained For Industry By Industry

At DesignPro Automation, we place a big emphasis on spotting and growing young talent through our apprenticeship program. We are committed to progressing as many apprentices as possible into specialised roles within the company. Our apprenticeship program is our opportunity to bring engineering-focused, enthusiastic candidates on board to train and develop their skills so that they can deliver solutions that will progress the manufacturing environment of the future.

We offer a diverse range of apprentice programmes including; toolmaking, electrical, manufacturing engineering and more recently original equipment manufacturing (OEM) engineering.
Each programme combines on-the-ground training with learning in an education and training institution. Candidates will ‘earn as they learn’ – they have an employment contract and are paid a salary for the duration of their apprenticeship training. The programmes vary in duration depending on the apprenticeship and can be from two to four years. On successful completion, candidates will not only have a nationally recognised qualification but will also have established solid industry experience.
