We have apprenticeship vacancies across the North East in science

The science sector is all about making discoveries, pushing boundaries and promoting innovation. Work takes place in demanding and fast-paced environments such as pharmaceutical, education, manufacturing and substance testing; working in laboratories, offices, workshops and clinics. In these environments, working safely and ethically is extremely important and companies will operate under highly regulated conditions so that they are providing quality products and services, safely.

The science sector continues to develop and innovate, from routine day-to-day testing to creating new intelligence platforms. Roles within this sector are extremely varied and utilise a range of skills that would be too exhaustive to list, however, some examples are process operator, laboratory technician, an analytical chemist and biomedical scientist.
