Qinetiq boosts engineering technician apprentice scheme 15 October 2012

QinetiQ is extending its apprenticeship scheme as part of its commitment to "inspiring a generation" of young engineers, scientists and technologists.

The defence technology and services specialist has announced that intends to recruit a further 75 trainees in the next 12 months.

These will add to the 109 already in place on QinetiQ's four-year engineering training programme, centred at the company's facility at MOD Boscombe Down, Wiltshire.

"We want to find the raw talent that is out there. We want to attract those who are interested in a bright future but also a career which really can make a difference," comments QinetiQ group HR director Dave Bradley.

"Our apprenticeship scheme is star quality. After the Olympics, there is a great feeling about British excellence and we are determined to continue to contribute to that," he continues.

"The QinetiQ way is all about teamwork and pulling together. QinetiQ apprentices need that motivation and strong ethos of delivery together with a great blend of intellect and practical skills."

QinetiQ will also be attending a number of graduate fairs over the coming months, he says. Representatives will be at Bath on 18 October 18, Birmingham on 31 October and at the National Graduation Fair at the Birmingham NEC on 2—3 November.
