UK Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships will continue to be one of the important ways that we attract, develop, and retain great people within Hill & Smith.

At Hill & Smith we firmly believe in the power of continuous improvement and apprenticeships provide a great route for new people to join us as well as existing employees to continue to develop their skills.

We have some remarkable talent and success stories with incredible opportunities available across all our UK operating companies.
Below you will find a selection of case studies that showcase the achievements from across the business.

Our apprenticeship programmes range from level 2, which is the equivalent to a GCSE qualification all the way up to Level 7, a postgraduate level qualification.

No matter where you are in your career, we have a programme that can empower you to reach your full potential.

Our current apprenticeship vacancies are listed in our careers page.

In 2023, we had a steady intake of apprentices across the group, with 25 new starters, a 30% increase from 2022.
