At AWE, we have all kinds of unique and world-class equipment and facilities. But it is our people who really make things happen. Our Human Resources (HR) teams deal with all the many activities which relate to our people. That means everything from recruitment, to development, to pay and performance. And because it’s about people, it’s always fascinating.
What is HR all about?
Put simply, HR keeps the people in AWE performing at their absolute best. We do this by making sure AWE recruits the best people in all the different disciplines we need. We make sure those people are welcomed, that they receive the right pay and pensions, and that they enjoy rewarding career development throughout their time here. It’s a big, broad and complex field of work.

How will you learn?
Your apprenticeship journey will last two years. And it really will be a journey. You will move between a range of different teams on placements. This will give you an impressive breadth and depth of insight into how Human Resources professionals work at AWE. Your placements - and the training you’ll receive alongside them - will help you to develop a comprehensive understanding of every discipline within HR, and the difference you can make. By the end of the programme, you will have achieved nationally recognised qualifications. What’s more, if you really impress us, we may consider sponsoring you to gain professional, chartered status.
