When you join British Sugar, you can expect a competitive starting salary of £21,489, which is reviewed annually. Additionally, you'll enjoy the benefit of 26 days holiday plus bank holidays. At British Sugar, we prioritise rewarding our employees for their dedication and contributions, ensuring a supportive and fulfilling work environment.

You will learn how to build trusted partnerships with our growers to ensure sugar beet is grown profitably and delivered to our factories. As the UK’s sole producer of Sugar from home grown Sugar Beet this apprenticeship is unique.

This is not a traditional farm-based apprenticeship – it will suit you if you already have a background or strong interest in agriculture or want to begin working towards a minimum of a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Agriculture.

You will become an integral part of the team, learning how to build trusted relationships with our Growers and advise our Growers on how to optimise growing sugar beet with us over a long-term partnership. Your Agricultural team works with farmers, harvesters, and hauliers to ensure that all aspects of sugar beet growing, and delivery are managed collaboratively.

A 30-month programme, following the Crop Technician apprenticeship standard Level 3 and all the practical experience to be ready to move into an Agricultural Account Manager role.

Working in an area around one of our East Anglian factories - Bury St Edmunds, Wissington or Cantley, you will spend time at college on day or block release and working closely with the Agricultural Account Managers as you develop your skills and experience before taking on your own area on successful scheme completion.

Opportunities with British Sugar

"British Sugar are renowned for their apprenticeship schemes. Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to learn without needing to go to university. You can still progress and achieve your goals without having a diploma! Whichever route you take after leaving school, an apprenticeship should be one of the options that is considered, especially if you aren’t fully set on university. For myself, I wanted to fully change my career and wanted a challenge I could really set my mind to. A lot of people don’t know what they want to do with their career and get discouraged when others have planned out their lives around university. The best piece of advice I could give is to give it a try!"
