Whether you’re helping purchase the parts for a highly efficient jet engine, a building, IT systems or training services, you’ll be learning every day. Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship, you could have the chance to move straight into a Buyer role, negotiating deals and managing our highly complex portfolio of suppliers.
