NG Bailey Opens Nationwide Apprenticeship Programme

NG Bailey Opens Nationwide Apprenticeship Programme
05 February 2024

NG Bailey is offering around 70 apprenticeship places across its business for 2024.

Placements are available across electrical, mechanical and technical areas, as well as in business-based roles. NG Bailey’s IT Services apprenticeship scheme, introduced in 2023 will also continue.

The engineering business first started delivering apprenticeship schemes in 1934 and has welcomed over 6,000 apprentices since then. 

Rob Smith, Group HR Director, said: “At NG Bailey we know how important a role apprentices play not only in our business, but in shaping the future of the wider construction industry. Our industry-leading approach develops the behaviours, skills, knowledge and experience our apprentices need to build a successful career.

“Many of our senior leadership team started their career journey as apprentices. It is this clear progression path as well as the opportunity for apprentices to work alongside industry-leading professionals who started in the same place as them which drives applications year on year. We look forward to welcoming our latest cohort in 2024 as they embark on an exciting career in this ever-changing sector.”

Holly Chapman, Quantity Surveyor Engineering Apprentice commented on her own experiences within the business: “NG Bailey is renowned for its apprenticeship scheme and the first-hand experience you get from it really attracted me to the programme.

“In my role so far, I’ve had the opportunity to earn whilst I learn the trade, gaining essential industry knowledge. I’ve also discovered new career routes and built valuable relationships in an environment that champions my professional and personal development.”
