Our Apprenticeship scheme offers a variety of career paths. The majority of roles are in engineering; from operations to design engineering to offshore support services. We also offer opportunities in support functions, for example IT, finance, supply chain, and many more.

We work closely with our Apprentices, combining hands-on experience with release for a college qualification. We work closely with you to track your development at JDR: from regular coaching meetings to working closely with our college partners to ensure a joined up approach to your training plan.
Our Apprentices are encouraged to achieve their full potential. You can read about JDR’s apprenticeship experiences below.
