McCain Engineering Apprenticeship Scheme

The team at McCain know that good people are the key ingredient to a successful business – and that’s why they’re committed to investing in employee development.

Apprenticeships at McCain After seeing a sizable skills gap in the UK engineering industry, the company wanted to take an active role in sourcing and training its own engineers to make sure McCain has the right people in place for the future.

In 2012, the company decided to create the McCain Engineering Apprenticeship Scheme – a four-year programme of college study and valuable on-site engineering experience at McCain.

Now in its fifth year, McCain has enrolled more than 20 apprentices onto the scheme across its UK sites.  The graduate apprentices are now fully fledged engineers working in the business – showing the success of the scheme.


McCain HR Director, Richard Smelt, says: “through the scheme, we’re able to give aspiring engineers the right tools to hit the ground running with their career - equipping them with the appropriate education and experience to operate and progress successfully in the engineering industry.

“Not only does it benefit our apprentices, but it benefits our company, as we create multi-skilled, work-ready engineers who have been given first-class training from day one.”
