Apprenticeships are an important route into work, offering paid employment, on-the-job training and a qualification.

Our flagship apprenticeship programme – eXcelBristol – provides opportunities to attract and develop new talent from groups that are currently under-represented at different levels across our Professional Services professions.

We offer a range of apprenticeships such as:

  • Administration
  • Laboratories
  • Engineering workshops
  • IT Services
  • Estates
  • Finance Services
