Future Talent

Our apprenticeships are varied and there is something here for everyone, from AAT, Business Administration, CIPD, Customer Service to Engineering apprenticeships.

"I joined igus 3 years straight after finishing my A levels as a Finance Apprentice. Since then I have completed level 2 and 3 in AAT, now I am working towards my level 4 AAT qualification. Last year I was nominated for the national AAT award for apprentice of the year, which was a huge accomplishment. In addition to this, igus supported me in my role as an East Midlands Apprentice Ambassador. Within this role I visited different schools to talk about igus and the varied routes you can take as an apprentice. In the future I look forward to becoming a chartered accountant and prospering at igus." - Joe

In addition to this, we support the wider business in their development and encourage furthering their skillset. There are a range of courses team members have carried out or a training for, alongside their day to day job. Some of these qualifications include English language, Master of Business Administration MBA, Accounting and Human Resources.

“I started working at igus after taking a career break with motherhood. I soon moved department as my transferable skill base from Retail Management was recognised, so within a year I was supporting igus with all the recruitment requirements. Over time, this role became more people-orientated and I naturally progressed into running the HR department (i-People). igus supported me and recommended that I go through the official CIPD route. Over a 3-year period I completed levels 3 and 5, which were sponsored through igus. These qualifications have supported my knowledge and confidence within the HR field.” – Leila

Northants Engineering Training Programme

The Northants Engineering Training Partnership (NETP) is a partnership of engineering companies in the Northants region that have linked-up with the University of Northampton and we are lucky enough to be one of those companies. The partnership exists to create a pool of industry ready engineers of the highest calibre http://www.netpengineering.co.uk/

“Being part of the NETP has been a great benefit, I was able to improve my knowledge and skills through working at igus. I have witnessed how a successful manufacturing company works. My placement at igus has been a great experience; I’ve worked with skilled engineers, which has provided me with confidence and the necessary tools to succeed in engineering. igus also helped me with my second-year university project and my dissertation. My CV has been enhanced by the experiences I've gained, and I would recommend placement through the NETP to all. Working at igus has been fantastic and I can’t thank them enough for the great opportunity they have given me.” – Adam
