    A Lean Manufacturing Apprenticeship within Assembly at JCB will give you a taste of the construction and agriculture industries, the power generation and waste recycling sectors. That’s because, wherever in the world mankind needs a push, you’ll find us—22 plants on 4 different continents. In fact, we’re in the top three construction equipment brands on the planet.

    As you might expect, a Level 2 Lean Manufacturing Apprenticeship with us will well and truly set you up for life—and all within just 15 months.

    What is a Lean Manufacturing Apprenticeship like?

    Lean manufacturing is what we call the processes that make us more efficient and smarter.

    We collect data, monitor process equipment and show where errors are occurring—and we do it using a working methodology called Kaizen, which is all about how small changes can have a massive impact.

    You’ll be following specified assembly sequences as you build the products that make JCB a world leader in the sectors we work in. You’ll be involved in detailed manufacturing processes, using specific tools as we assemble manufacturing components. You will be expected to carry out and act on quality checks you perform. It’ll give you a whole new perspective on manufacturing and get you thinking about how it might evolve.

    Learning this stuff is truly exciting because it’s about how we’ll future-proof our manufacturing activity—right-now solutions for long-term gain.

    We’ll give you loads of support from some amazing people and there’ll even be outdoor, residential development as part of your training package. It’s all in pursuit of becoming an unmatched assembly operative, analyst, problem solver and collaborative team member.

    What will I get out of a Lean Manufacturing Apprenticeship?

    Careers in Lean Manufacturing don’t come more credible and respected than those started at a company like JCB.

    It’s not just having our company name behind you, though. It’s the inspiration and support you’ll get from your innovative, “never content” mentors, always striving for better ways of doing things. It’s also the fact that you’ll be treated like a proper member of the team from the day you set foot in the building.

    Over 15 months, you’ll get a taste of life here and—when you finish—there’ll be a guaranteed role awaiting you. (Not all apprenticeships will promise you that level of commitment to your development.) Real work, real impact, real respect—and a Level 2 Lean Manufacturing qualification to top it all off. What a way to start.

    As if that’s not enough, we offer a comprehensive range of rewards and benefits that includes:

    • Outstanding, structured training and development
    • Attractive full-time salary—not a trainee rate!
    • 33 days’ annual holiday (increasing with service)
    •  Discounted healthcare
    • Access to sports facilities and our healthy living centre
    • Competitive pension scheme
    • Support toward professional accreditations

    How do I qualify for a JCB Apprenticeship?

    You’ll need at least four GCSEs or equivalent, including Maths and English at D/3 or above. Not to mention bags of ambition and the energy it’ll take to make it in the manufacturing world.

    We’re after people who’ll give it all they’ve got every single day. Ready to learn, motivated to work hard and excited to interact with some of the company’s leading authorities in their fields, you’ll be all set for an immersive experience that gives you a structured pathway to an amazing future.
