Our reputation for technical excellence is a defining part of our heritage and something we’re immensely proud of. Join us as a Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Engineer, and you’ll feel that sense of pride too. Not least because we’ll give you the on-the-job training and hands-on experience you need to become a technical expert. More than that, we’ll support you to gain industry-recognised qualifications, and give you a competitive salary while you learn. The programme NDT is used across a wide variety of sectors and relies heavily upon Physics and Maths. NDT is vital to us in inspecting components across our Civil Aerospace, Defence and Power Systems businesses, and we work with world-class universities and companies to ensure our inspection technologies are industry leading. Your apprenticeship will give you exposure across our business as you learn how to use NDT to find surface and internal defects in a variety of materials. You’ll spend time building your practical and theoretical knowledge of x-rays (radiography), ultrasonics, eddy currents, magnetic particle inspection and fluorescent penetrant inspection undertaking training courses in these five main NDT methods at a new state-of-the-art training facility. You’ll gain manufacturing and laboratory experience of these methods along with quality assessment techniques, providing a mix of both practical and theoretical experience. This apprenticeship typically lasts around 48 months.
