Hands-on and practical work experience opportunities for enthusiastic and solutions-focused apprentices. 

It all starts here

We believe in creating access to career opportunities, so we’re really proud to have been able to offer apprenticeships at Ashfords for the last seven years, with many of our former apprentices continuing to progress their careers with us.

We want to keep investing in motivated people who demonstrate the potential to be a real future asset to our business. We’re not expecting the finished package on day one, but if you can show us enthusiasm, solution-focused thinking and a great work ethic, our apprenticeship programmes can help with the rest.

Is an apprenticeship right for me?

We recognise that university is still the preferred path for some people, and it can be a really exciting next step following school or college. However, if you don’t feel university is for you or you’re looking for a more hands-on, practical learning experience, our apprenticeship programmes offer a fantastic alternative way of kick-starting a successful career.

You will have the benefit of studying towards a recognised qualification, whilst developing the inviable skills and knowledge that come with working in a professional environment, alongside individuals who are experts in their field.

An apprenticeship with Ashfords will challenge you and test your adaptability, but we pride ourselves in offering a supportive and inclusive environment, where you’ll be a valued member of the team and encouraged to grow as a young professional. All we ask in return is a willingness to learn and can-do attitude!

How do I apply?

We recruit our apprentices in the Spring of each year, ready for a September start. You’ll need to submit an online application, telling us about why an apprenticeship is the right path for you. If successful, you’ll be invited to attend an in-person interview at either our Exeter or Bristol office, depending on the role you’ve applied for.

Applications for our 2024 recruitment campaign have now closed. If you have questions about applying next year, please contact the Apprenticeship Team.
