We don’t just take people to different parts of the world, we also transport thousands of items every day – everything from live animals to medical supplies. On this apprenticeship, you’ll experience a series of rotations where you’ll help to make sure that everything’s handled properly and gets to where it’s meant to be on time, every time. In short, you’ll be at the centre of a fast-moving global logistics operation, helping to build the reputation of a well-known brand.
You’ll build your knowledge and skills in a variety of roles and teams, from the warehouse to our head office, giving you a wider understanding of our cargo operations. As well as liaising with colleagues and customers, you’ll have the chance to gain real experience, handling the freight and using a variety of systems, all the while making sure that you work safely and securely. In addition to learning from some of our most experienced people, you’ll enjoy extensive training and support.
It all adds up to a challenging and rewarding apprenticeship that will give you all tools you need to gain a NVQ Level 2 in Warehousing and Storage in your first year

What we look for
What our people say about the programme
"I’d tried a number of different jobs – I trained in hotel management, and tried property management and IT services. When I heard about the apprenticeship, I thought it would be a good opportunity to break into the aviation industry. And the fact that there were several options to move around and try new things once you're in the business appealed to me."
"At the moment I work in the warehouse, which involves building and breaking freight, taking freight in, sending it out and using a forklift to move it. At the same time, I also have the chance to get involved in various volunteering events and apprentice projects."
"It’s very busy, so the shifts go extremely quickly. It’s actually quite tiring too, so I look forward to the rest days. But it’s the people I work with who make it so special. There’s a good sense of support and they’re a good laugh, too."
