Celebrate 100 years of innovation by becoming an Edwards Apprentice

Edwards are currently looking for 4 Degree Apprentices to join the Eastbourne Product Company in September 2020, across the disciplines of Manufacturing Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering and Embedded Software Design and Development.

As an Apprentice within Edwards, you will move around the business through placements covering a number of key business areas such as Engineering and Operations.

Within these areas there are multiple opportunities. In the first instance in Operations, you will be learning how to build our products but later in the apprenticeship you will learn how to test and fault find on the same products.

Within Engineering, there will be opportunities to perform testing of new solutions, develop problem solving skills as well as working on design work in a team environment. Soft skills such as presentation skills, communication and teamwork will also be trained during the Apprenticeship period.

"There is a culture at Edwards where people want you to succeed. Ever since I started my Apprenticeship, it gave me a new sense of direction and purpose. I feel really lucky to have been given the opportunity."
