Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a great way for you to learn and gain hands-on experience & for us to find talented experts of the future

Start your journey and become an expert in your chosen field through one of our apprenticeship programmes.

We offer exciting career and academic development opportunities for school leavers and individuals looking to pursue a new career. Our apprenticeships provide you with the skills and expertise required for a rewarding future in engineering and other specialisms.

As an Apprentice no two days are ever the same, you will work alongside your team on many exiting customer projects, new product designs and introductions, and contribute to the development of innovative technologies used to increase the performance of our existing portfolio. Whilst gaining practical experience you will study part time to understand the theory behind the methods and achieve recognised qualifications.

Our Apprenticeship programmes have contributed to the succession of many of our existing senior and principal engineers here at Dynex. The exceptional support and mentoring from our teams are essential to your development, both during your apprenticeship and throughout your career.

If you have an interest in Engineering with a sound knowledge and passion for maths, physics, mechanical engineering and material engineering, then one of our apprentice programmes might be for you.

We offer apprenticeships in Electrical, Electronic and Mechanical engineering as well as commercial areas. Our apprenticeships are offered at the following levels:

Advanced Apprenticeship

Our Advanced Apprenticeships take between 3 and 4 years to complete. During the apprenticeship you will gain valuable experience working in our Lincoln site for 4 days a week, whilst attending college for the additional 1 day a week. You will receive first-hand experience working alongside our experienced engineers on pioneering projects, whilst studying to gain an NVQ Level 3 and a technical engineering qualification.

Higher Apprenticeship

Our Higher Apprenticeships take between 2 and 4 years to complete. During the apprenticeship you will gain first-hand experience on many advanced projects and receive training and mentoring from our knowledgeable engineering team. In addition to practical experience, you will attend College part time and work towards gaining an NVQ Level 4 and a relevant technical engineering qualification.

Degree Apprenticeship

Our Degree Apprenticeships take 5 years to complete. During the apprenticeship you will work at the forefront of innovative projects and develop your practical experience working within one of our engineering teams. During the Degree Apprenticeship programme you will study part time at a chosen University to gain an NVQ Level 6-7, equivalent to a Bachelors or Master’s degree.

All of our apprenticeships are delivered in partnership with Further and Higher Education providers across the UK. The institutes offer exceptional student support and tuition to develop the skills, attributes and knowledge of our apprentices

Following the completion of our apprenticeship programmes, newly qualified apprentices are encouraged to continue professional development through the participation of internal and external training, additional studying of industry recognised qualifications and frequent shadowing of department leaders.

We run annual Assessment Centre’s from March to April. Please regularly check our website for more information and instructions on how to apply.
