Level 2 & 3 apprenticeships | Wates

Your Pathway To Building Your Career From The Ground Up

Are you passionate about Construction? Our industry-recognised apprenticeships are a great opportunity for school and college leavers to build their career from the ground up.

Our Level 2 and & 3 Apprenticeship programmes are tailored specifically for those who want to start a career as trade professionals or within business support functions. Opportunities are available countrywide for Business Admin, Customer Service, Trades and Professional Apprentices. We typically recruit twice a year with a January or September start.


Benefits of an apprenticeship

Below are some of the core benefits our level 2 and 3 apprenticeships will give you:

  • You’ll experience a wide variety of projects, getting a full understanding of our business and your particular area of qualification.
  • You’ll get real hands-on experience, be out on our construction sites and have the opportunity to be mentored and supported by seasoned professionals.
  • You’ll also finish our apprenticeships fully qualified in a trade and with a nationally recognised qualification.

Success story

Many of our apprentices have gone on to have long, successful careers at Wates. In fact, some of our senior directors actually started their careers as apprentices!
