Graduate and Apprenticeships Schemes

We're training the next generation of rocket scientists. We're in the middle of a long-term development programme, and we know that we'll need skill sets which are hard to find. Our apprenticeship scheme takes outstanding young people and trains them in both academic and real work environments to turn them into our next generation of designers, technicians and engineers.

Our Schemes

Reaction Engines run a four year Level 3 Advanced Apprentice Scheme to ensure our Apprentices come out at the cutting edge of engineering and science disciples. A select number of highly skilled young people are taken on every year who go on to experience working in a professional aerospace environment while they study to become trained and qualified technicians. You will be spending this time visiting different departments, learning about different areas of an engineering business; with the final part working in a chosen department to complete your NVQ.

You will ideally have an interest in Engineering and good practical ability/skills; as well as having good communication skills with a self-motivated and flexible attitude. You should have a minimum of five GCSE's (or equivalent qualifications) at Grade C and above including English, Science and Maths.
