“I’ve met so many new people, I’ve made friends for life at Nissan.”


Apprentice life is invigorating and exciting at Nissan. You will find yourself part of a team working together to shape the future of automotive mobility, driven by the shared goal of ongoing innovation and improvement. It’s not all work and no play – you’ll have opportunities to make friends, get involved in community projects, attend team-building sessions and social events too.


Our apprenticeship schemes typically range from two to five years. They include both on and off-the-job training, combining theoretical and practical skills to prepare you for your role and future career with us.

Each scheme has its own entry criteria, aligned to the skills required for the challenges of that particular scheme so it’s important you pick one that aligns with your passions and goals.

All of our apprenticeship schemes offer full-time, paid employment, with some schemes also offering overtime and shift allowances. We believe in rewarding hard work and, depending on your performance, you could be awarded a salary increase after every six-month appraisal. You’ll also get 26 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) and a uniform provided.
