The rotation-based program will help you to develop practical engineering skills, including experimental / new model development, component investigation and problem solving, measurement, control, and inspection.

About you

If you are passionate about engineering and curious to find out how things work, how they are designed and how they can be improved and if you are considering a career as a qualified engineer, this is a perfect opportunity for you. 
As an Apprentice, you will be learning on the job and through a formal academic course which will require lots of self-motivation and good organisation skills. You will have to be able to drive your own development, be highly motivated and determined. 
We are looking for a ‘self-starter’, who always wants to give their best, sets themselves challenging targets, can make their own decisions. 
You will have to be able to work and communicate clearly and effectively within a team and interact and help others when required.
You will have a logical approach and be able to think on feet. You will enjoy solving complex problems and finding out the root causes. 
You need to have a great attention to details and follow rules and procedures especially those relating to Health and Safety.  
We would expect you to have 5 GCSEs at Grade 6 or above, including Mathematics, English and a Science, Technology or Engineering related subject, as well as A Levels at grade C or above in both a Mathematical based subject and a Science, Technology, Engineering or additional Mathematics related subject, or 90+ credits in an Engineering BTEC at level 3.

As a talented individual working at Domino you can expect a competitive salary and a generous benefits package, including 25 days basic holiday (with the opportunity to buy and sell), a discretionary bonus, life insurance, medical insurance and access to the Green Car Scheme to name a few!  We are a highly successful company, we’re large enough to offer career development opportunities yet small enough for your contribution to be readily recognised and rewarded.  Our culture is built on our core values, Collaboration, Listening, Expertise, Ambition and Responsibility. We think Domino is a great place to work and if you join us, you’ll find yourself part of organisation which really cares about their people, as well as offering challenging and rewarding careers.
