There’s still time to apply for a higher apprenticeship at the Bri-Stor Group

Gemma - Higher apprenticeship

With 7 vacancies for Higher Apprenticeship roles across Bri-Stor Group, the scheme is the perfect opportunity to kickstart your career in a variety of roles.


Based in Hixon, Staffordshire, the Bri-Stor Group is looking for ambitious people who want to kickstart their career with a Higher Apprenticeship, with roles available across its four companies; Bri-Stor Systems, Alpha Manufacturing, Atlas Coating and Hex Signs and Graphics.

With an established and ever-growing Apprenticeship Programme, recruiting at least 13 engineering apprentices each year for the last 11 years, the Group is now looking to expand its scheme with the recruitment of a number of Higher and Level 3 and 4 Apprentices, across a variety of roles.

Group HR Manager, Karen Barnacle said: “This is an exciting time to join our business. After experiencing significant growth across all Group companies, we are looking for ambitious and driven people to support all areas of our dynamic business, while gaining recognised qualifications.

“This year’s intake marks the official launch of our Higher Apprenticeship programme. Having achieved such success previously with our Level 3 Engineering Apprentices, we believe this will be just as effective in producing the dynamic team members we need to take our business forward.”

The Mechanical and Electrical Engineering roles will take place in collaboration with Derby University, allowing successful applicants to work towards a degree while gaining hands-on experience, while also benefiting from their course being fully funded by the Bri-Stor Group.

Other roles will allow the apprentices to study towards a Level 3 or 4 qualification while gaining real-world experience in areas such as; purchasing and signage/graphics. With an already 500 strong work-force across the Bri-Stor Group, the Higher Apprentices will be supported by experienced and expert teams during their training and education.

Bri-Stor Group Apprenticeship Manager, William Davies-Hill added: “We are proud to have supported over 100 young students through our established Apprenticeship Programme and are now looking to strengthen our programme with the recruitment of 7 Higher Apprentices. Over the past decade, not only have all of our previous apprentices achieved exceptional pass rates, but all have continued onto full time positions within the company, contributing to the future success of the Group.

“Our hope is that with our record of outstanding support for our apprentices, this new intake will flourish in their roles and be an asset to our company as they start on their chosen career path.”

With these exciting opportunities still up for grabs, those interested in applying for the Higher Apprenticeship positions should go to:
