Applications for 2022 are now closed and will reopen in Spring 2023 

An advanced apprenticeship with Western Power Distribution is just the beginning.

There are many opportunities to keep learning, developing new skills and growing your career throughout your time with us. 

Joining us on an advanced apprenticeship means learning with the best in a business that strives to attract, retain and invest in the best people. You’ll also be avoiding the pitfall of going to university to get a degree, incurring debt and still having to get industry experience. 

An advanced apprenticeship with Western Power Distribution offers the opportunity to earn as you learn, get invaluable, hands on experience and a real insight into how the biggest electricity distribution network operator in the UK works. 

You’ll also have a distinct advantage when it comes to applying for a real, permanent role. 

“We are looking for talented, highly motivated people to join Western Power Distribution. Our people are at the heart of our business success and our apprentices of today will be our skilled staff of tomorrow – safely delivering outstanding levels of customer service and operational performance for our customers.” 

Phil Swift, Chief Executive Officer
