Our Supply Chain Management Degree Apprenticeship programme develops the talent our business needs to identify, secure and distribute the vital parts that enable us to build pioneering products with the power to transform the future. 

It offers bold, curious and ambitious individuals the chance to get real work experience and earn a salary, while studying for a debt-free honours degree in Management and Leadership. It’s an exceptional opportunity to build your career and make an impact on a world-class supply chain. 

The programme

Spend four years with our expert team and you’ll gain the sort of practical knowledge you simply can’t develop in the classroom. You’ll experience the full breadth of our global supply chain as you take on placements in different areas of our business. As well as getting on-the-job training on real-life projects, you’ll also study a BA (Hons) in Management & Leadership delivered at a range of universities across the UK – so you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds as you carve out a career in supply chain management. 

What you’ll do

The importance of our global supply chain can’t be overstated. The team here make sure components, parts and products are where they need to be, when they need to be there, right across the world. They’re responsible for a supply chain that starts with raw materials being extracted from the ground and ends with high-specification materials being put into an engine. You’ll get broad experience as you carry out your placements, delving into the detail of how materials get from A to B, the packaging we use, and even making improvements to this complex supply chain in a mix of day to day tasks and project work. All of which will equip you to leave the programme as an Order Controller or Production Controller and join a company and function with a huge breadth of opportunities. 

What you’ll need

You’ll have three A-levels (or equivalent) obtained or predicted, at grade B or above to include a numerical or business-related subject (excluding General Studies). Alternatively, a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in a numerical or business-related subject at DDM, plus 5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at minimum grade C/4 including English Language and Maths.

We’re looking for individuals who are purpose-driven and passionate about delivering on commitments. People who are keen to learn about what makes a global business operate successfully. You’ll be a logical and analytical thinker – someone with a common-sense approach when it comes to working with data and coming up with solutions to challenges. You’ll also be a team player who’s able to demonstrate their achievements outside school or college.

What you’ll get

  • A competitive salary starting from £13,830 a year and increasing as you complete your training

  • A competitive pension, and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)

  • Career support from day one 

  • A bachelor’s degree in Management and Leadership and nationally recognised qualifications
