We are looking for motivated and productive people who have an interest in mechanical or electrical engineering to join our apprenticeship scheme.

All of our current apprentices are employed on a full time basis with a competitive salary for the type of apprenticeship being undertaken.

Apprentice training usually takes 4 years to complete. The initial part of your apprenticeship will be spent in full time study with a local learning provider helping you gain key skills. The remainder of the apprenticeship will be a mixture of on-the-job training and attendance at a local college, during which time you will have the opportunity of gaining national qualifications.

The completion of your apprenticeship is not the end of your further education and there are many opportunities for further study to advance your career.

The minimum entry requirement for our Apprenticeship scheme is:

GCSE Grades A to C (or equivalent) in English, Mathematics and Science.

We hope that our Apprenticeship programme encourages people to consider a future career in the aerospace industry with ARA.

If you are interested in joining our progressive, dynamic company that can offer you a rewarding, challenging and interesting career please send in your CV and a covering letter to the HR Department or e-mail
