About the programme
The Control and Technical Support Engineering apprenticeship is designed to create the control and automation engineers of the future.
Engineering apprentices play a hugely important role at AstraZeneca, solving challenges that arise from some of the most advanced equipment in the industry.
The Control and Technical Support Engineers primarily assist the smooth running of manufacturing in activities such as site maintenance and improvements. You will work closely with other production roles in a fast-paced and cost-conscious manufacturing environment, where complex problem solving is key.
How does the programme work?
This 5-year apprenticeship offers a real alternative to full-time university, with the opportunity to study for a BEng (Hons) in Automation and Controls. Because like you, we believe in doing things differently and taking the road less travelled. In being bold and exploring new paths to achieve our ambitions.
How we will support you
AstraZeneca is a huge advocate of early careers and we all want you to succeed. In return for the passion and energy you will bring to the function where you will be based, we will support your apprenticeship all the way and you will be encouraged to fulfil all of your potential. You will have access to excellent development opportunities, playing a crucial role in your team, whilst being supported to network and socialise with your peers so you can see the impact of your creativity and ideas. All apprentices across our business have the support of their line manager, mentor, buddy (who is normally an existing or ex-apprentice to support you as you move into our business and your role) and the AstraZeneca early talent network.
Where you will be based
These roles are available at our Macclesfield Campus.
What we're looking for:
- Enthusiastic individuals
- A passion to learn
- Confidence to work independently
- Logical thinking
- The ability to apply a rational approach to problem solving
- Demonstrable initiative
