The diverse and challenging nature of the work undertaken by Fairhurst provides an ideal environment within which individuals can learn and develop.


You don’t have to be a Graduate in order to work towards achieving professional qualifications. Fairhurst run Apprenticeship schemes where you get to work and gain experience alongside qualified engineers, earning a wage whilst being given time to attend appropriate day release and other courses, funded by Fairhurst, which lead to work-related qualifications.

If you are a school or college leaver and interested in pursuing an engineering career with us, then please send an initial email titled “Apprenticeship” with your CV to the office you are interested in joining.
