As the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, we are a world leader in the provision of aids to navigation. Providing nearly 600 aids to navigation, the service uses three ships and new technology to deliver a leading-edge service.

We are seeking a highly motivated person for a four year Apprenticeship.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain formal training and a solid foundation that will enable you to develop a career in warehousing and storage, and achieve qualifications at NVQ Level 2 and 3. As part of your comprehensive training package you will be enrolled on an apprenticeship scheme and based in the warehouse at Swansea. Most learning will be work-based but may involve a period of study to complete the Functional Skills Element of the NVQ. Throughout the apprenticeship you will be guided by a dedicated mentor.

You will learn to become proficient in warehousing and storage logistics, in support of TH operations, particularly Marine and Engineering functions. If appropriate to enhance experience, there may be the occasional short periods of secondment to our warehouse in Harwich, Essex and familiarisation visits to other operational locations and TH vessels.

To be considered you must have (and be able to demonstrate) an enthusiastic interest in Trinity House, warehousing and logistics. You should be educated to GCSE level (a minimum of four GCSEs grade C and above, including Maths and English). A clean UK driving licence, or the aptitude to pass the UK driving test, would also be advantageous

Permanent employment with Trinity House may only be possible if a suitable vacancy arises at the end of the four year training period.
