Royal Mint invites applications for apprenticeship programme

Published:  04 June, 2015

The Royal Mint is inviting applications for its 2015 Engineering Apprenticeship programme as part of a recruitment initiative to identify young talent to help drive the traditional business forward in the modern era.

Successful applicants will join the organisation’s engineering division in September and spend the next four years participating in a programme which combines vocational learning with expert technical training on site to gain their industry qualifications.

The south Wales based organisation is the world’s leading export mint, serving more than 100 issuing authorities around the globe and manufacturing nearly 2 billion circulating coins for the UK alone in the last financial year.

Anne Jessopp, The Royal Mint’s director of business services, said: “Our business continues to go from strength to strength and we will be delivering a number of exciting large scale projects over the next couple of years, including the opening of The Royal Mint Visitor Centre and the launch of a new circulating UK £1 coin. We employ a number of apprentices and graduates, who are all at varying stages in their personal development plan, and strive to continue offering these opportunities to help reduce a skills shortage within the industry. The Royal Mint’s employees are one of its strongest assets, and the entrepreneurial spirit, ingenuity, determination and skills of the local workforce play an integral part in driving business strategies forward and helping to ensure the success of the organisation.”
