Apprenticeship and Graduate Schemes

Our apprenticeship and graduate schemes are both designed to prepare the successful candidates for a challenging and rewarding career at Royal Mail. They are based on practical experience and on-the-job development. A number of our schemes also work towards additional qualifications.


Apprentices earn while they learn. They can even work towards an NVQ qualification while they're at it. Join one of our apprenticeship schemes and you'll get hands‑on experience in a paid job.

We have three apprenticeship schemes:

Vehicle Technician Apprenticeship

If you've got a real passion for vehicles, and are interested in gaining the technical knowledge and skills to maintain them and help to keep our fleets running smoothly, then a Vehicle Technician Apprentice Scheme may be for you. The scheme will provide you with an NVQ 3 in Motor Vehicle Technology along with the key skills elements.

Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship

If you're driven and flexible with a passion for technology and engineering, and would like to play an important role in helping us deliver the change required to achieve our world class mail ambitions, then an Engineering Apprenticeship could be for you. The scheme will provide you with an NVQ Level 3 in engineering maintenance, a BTEC diploma in Operations and Maintenance, along with the key skills qualifications that will underpin your career.

 Project Management Apprenticeship

A good head for figures, a sharp eye for detail, excellent analytical skills and a highly organised approach are all essential. You’ll need to be even better with people. Working alongside experienced project managers, you’ll learn about every aspect of project management. You’ll also work towards an NVQ Level 4 in Project Management. And at the end of the programme, you’ll be a member of the Association of Project Managers.
