Apprenticeships and Graduates

Start something brilliant…

At Bethell we are always on the look out for new talent and our apprentice programmes are custom built each year to “grow our own” talent for the future. There’s plenty of knowledge that you’ll learn on the job (that you could never learn from a book) and our experts are keen to share their knowledge with you. These schemes are specifically designed to give you all the experience and training you need to achieve your key end roles and you will be guided by a mentor, an assessor and your line manager.

If you share our passion for the future and you want to get started on your career immediately, you could be part of our multi-talented line-up.

Read about our Apprentice CAD Technician, Idris’ experience working with Bethell.

Tell us a bit about the role you play within the business, the projects you work on and the type of work you undertake on a daily basis

I am an Apprentice CAD technician, I work on as laid and design drawings for construction. 

What development opportunities have you been given in your role?

I have been given the opportunity to become apart of a very successful company/ team, I have the chance to start a good career in the multi utility industry, I have a 3.5-year apprenticeship programme that I am enrolled onto which enables me to develop my CAD skills. Also, I could move onto design further on my studies.  

How has Bethell played a role in your long-term career goals?

Before coming into the apprenticeship and the company I had no idea about multi utility, however Bethell have given me the a chance to understand the company and the industry and what sort of work they do here, this has enabled me to think about hopefully having a long term career in the industry and the company. I have enjoyed the time I have been here, and I am looking forward for more exciting days to come. 

What has been your highlight working at Bethell so far?

As I haven’t been here for long, I would like to say that my highlight would be everything that has happened so far. For example, the amazing people that I have met e.g. the CAD team all experienced helpful people. The site visits I have been on in the past month of being here to understand what really goes with the drawings we do. 

We pay above the minimum rate and as members of the 5% club we are committed to supporting and investing in early career development.
