Reliance is a world-leading company, based in Huddersfield, manufacturing engineering solutions for customers in a diverse range of industries. For sixty years, we have offered an apprenticeship scheme to support young engineers starting their careers.

We are looking for strong academic achievers who enjoy practical engineering work, are computer literate, and want to further their education whilst gaining practical skills. You should have, or expect to gain, at least five GCSE passes at grade C or above (or equivalent e.g. above level 5) including maths and science.

You need a positive approach to training and a genuine enthusiasm towards developing a career in engineering, as well as being determined to work hard in order to improve your skills throughout the apprenticeship. Places are strictly limited.

A Four Year Full-Time Engineering Apprenticeship

Learn skills for the future

During your apprenticeship with Reliance Precision, you will:

  • Work alongside fellow apprentices in an accredited training facility
  • Receive training in a range of manufacturing and engineering disciplines
  • Learn to fully operate manual machinery
  • Learn to program machines using CNC (Computer Numerical Control)
  • Gain recognised Further Education qualifications
  • Have the opportunity to apply for Higher Education sponsorship

Although apprentices at Reliance are training in mechanical engineering, the opportunity to build a career in other departments is also available. We are proud to have employees who joined the company through our apprenticeship scheme working in mechanical engineering, design engineering, manufacturing operations, sales, and supervising our apprentices.
