Gatwick to recruit apprentices

South London’s Gatwick Airport has launched an engineering apprenticeship programme for this year, with applications now open. You will have to be quick with a closing date of 4 March 2024. 

Now in its 47th year, Gatwick’s apprenticeship programme has seen more than 300 people graduate since 1977. Applications are now open for four engineering apprenticeship roles, starting in August.

The four-year programme includes a year at East Surrey College in Redhill, where the apprentices will study practical and theory-based subjects, working towards a BTEC level three. Apprentices will gain hands-on experience of various engineering sectors across the airport, including airfield, baggage, specialist systems, shuttles, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), among others.

Gatwick was placed as one of the leading apprenticeship providers in the UK last year.

Finley Toner, Engineering Apprentice, Gatwick, said: “This apprenticeship has been amazing. At first, I was introduced to the others who were accepted onto the apprenticeship who are now some of my closest friends. I was then given tours around each department meeting some of the technicians on the job and was also shown around the college where I have spent my first year on the apprenticeship. And this was all just in the first week!”
