WE RUN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMMES EACH YEAR, BASED AT OUR MANUFACTURING SITES
To secure one of our apprenticeships, you’ll stand out from a crowd of thousands of other applicants. Your can-do attitude and interest in science and technology will shine through. You will have drive and determination and crave responsibility. We call it the INEOS Difference. In return, you’ll enjoy an exciting role which will see you working at our plants and studying alongside, earning as you learn.
Find out more about some of our apprenticeship opportunities below:
INEOS Modern Apprentices, Grangemouth (Scotland) & Koln (Germany):
Year 1 of your 4-year Modern Apprenticeship will be primarily spent at college. The remaining years are based at our Grangemouth or Köln sites, where you'll be assigned to a working team and attend college on day release. This gives you hands-on, competency-based skills training as you work towards completing your studies. By the end of the apprenticeship, you'll have achieved qualifications in your chosen discipline, and earned valuable experience along the way.
INEOS Oxide, Hull (England)
The Oxide plant in Hull offers an apprenticeship programme to train future plant operators. The first year is spent offsite at a local training provider with state of the art facilities (which includes a mock chemical plant and a control room). After the first year, our apprentices join us on site to continue their learning. Our apprenticeships last up to 4 years, starting every September (recruitment starts in March, with vacancies listed on the National Apprenticeship Service website).
DUAL LEARNING PROGRAMMES, ZWIJNDRECHT (Belgium)
At our Zwijndrecht site in Belgium, we offer “dual learning” programmes allowing for the completion of technical Bachelor Degree-level qualifications alongside working onsite. These provide training for future Process Operators, complementing theoretical learning with practical experience on site.
Our INOVYN business, which manufactures chlor-alkali and PVC products, offers apprenticeships across the majority of its operations in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Norway and Sweden.
Working closely with a range of education institutions, apprenticeships are offered across a broad spectrum of disciplines including production, laboratory analysis, finance, procurement, commercial and human resources. In the UK, for instance, INOVYN’s key technical training internships often develop into full time roles in the process operations and maintenance teams.
A large number of our graduate hires have previously undertaken a placement with us prior to joining either the Core INEOS Graduate Programme or a Direct Entry graduate job.
PETROINEOS, Lavera (France):
An apprenticeship is ideal for those wishing to kickstart a career in the petrochemical industry. At our Lavera site in France we offer training which starts between 2-5 years after finishing high school, and provides the opportunity to qualify as a technician or engineer in process engineering and chemical engineering, as well as mechanical, instrument, electrical or support functions.
The apprenticeship is a competency-based multi-year program, with the chance to gain a BTS/DUT (at Level Bac+2) up to a Masters Degree/ Engineering Diploma (Bac+5) level in a chosen discipline. We offer unrivalled support and mentorship both on-site and in partnership with the University of Aix-Marseille, ENSIC, ENSIACET, and the IFP School.
INEOS Phenol, Gladbeck (Germany)
At our Phenol plant in Gladbeck, Germany, we offer an apprenticeship programme running over 3 and a half years. This provides both technical schooling alongside a business education. With approximately 20 apprentices learning with us at any one time, this is our main vehicle for developing our future plant operators.
