Flexible Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are not what they used to be and they can now be a great fit for anyone - regardless of age, background or experience. They are no longer just a starting point in your career and can be also be undertaken to re-skill in a different sector or build on your existing skillset.

 

Whether you’re a school leaver or someone looking to re-skill mid-career, there is a place for you at Saint-Gobain. It doesn’t matter what subject or skill you want to learn, We have an open culture and are happy to explore options with you.

 

We have a range of apprenticeship opportunities in; Digital, HR, Customer Service, Engineering, Leadership & Management, and in addition to this we are currently working to finalise additional apprenticeship opportunities in IT and Procurement.

Meet our apprentices

I had very little experience in construction as my previous roles involved working in schools and retail once I left school. I saw the post advertised for an Apprentice Designer at Pasquill Huddersfield and I wanted to push myself into something completely different. I had always been interested in construction, so when I saw the opportunity I went for it. I was attracted to the idea of an apprenticeship as it meant I would be trained on the job and complete a BTEC qualification, allowing me to earn and learn at the same time.

Internships and Work Experience

Fancy trying us out first? Internships and work experience are great ways to help you decide the future direction of your career. We regularly offer opportunities for people to experience life at Saint-Gobain before they join. Every year we take on people from school, college and university to undertake placements of varying lengths.

 

We’re proud of the fact that many of these people return to start their careers with us at a later date. For example, meet Sophie – she started with us on a short work placement in our central HR team. Once she graduated, Sophie was offered a full time role in the same team, and has since been promoted to support over 400 colleagues in 3 locations.
