Apprenticeship available

We're looking for someone to join our public engagement team as an apprentice in January 2021.

This Level 3 Event Assistant Apprenticeship is a perfect first step for someone interested in events and outreach, and will offer experience and training in administration, event planning, customer service and many other areas.

Find out more and apply by 26 November


Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.

Becoming an apprentice will give you the opportunity to learn and practise new skills in the workplace, all while you are being paid to do a job which contributes to the institute. Through a mix of learning while doing the job, formal off-the-job training and by practising new skills, you will gain the technical knowledge, experience and skills needed for the role you have now and to build upon for your future career.

When suitable job roles become available, the Crick endeavours to offer apprenticeship opportunities and we encourage a wide range of people to apply, especially from the local area.
