Be the best you!

It's more than making brews, it's a springboard for your career

Going to university isn't the only way to start a cracking career. As an apprentice you can earn while you learn, gaining hands on experience in areas of the business relevant to your role. And with an award-winning range of roles on offer, you're bound to find something that's right up your street.

At the end of your apprenticeship we have permanent, substantial, positions that need to be filled. That means we work hard to help you develop to your full potential. You’ll have access to personal development opportunities and support, learn from people who’ve done the job, gain recognised qualifications and gain the industry leading skills and experience you’ll need for your career. We provide health and safety training to keep you safe wherever you work

You’ll spend time experiencing different areas of the business that ae relevant to your role, setting you up for a long term career with us. And we mean long term. 

Along with your work activities you can get to know your fellow apprentices, and your own strengths, at outward bound team building weeks. Perhaps you’ll take part in team challenges for National Apprentice Week or get involved with the North West apprentice network.

At the end of your apprenticeship you can become a United Utilities ambassador and inspire other young people to come and work with us.
