ROK Electrical strongly believe in the benefits of implementing a successful Apprenticeship scheme within the Company, building a skilled electrical workforce for the future and currently employ and support a number of Apprentices within the team.

ROK Electrical are best placed to offer an apprentice the Commercial Site exposure they need in order to complete the full Level 3 Electrotechnical qualification.
As we manage our Apprenticeship course inhouse our HR Department has established links with many local colleges that we currently work with.

As part of the recruitment process, we ensure you are placed with the nearest college geographically to your home if appropriate and continually review the colleges to ensure you are gaining the correct education whilst completing the course.

You can be reassured to know that our HR department work both closely with all of our apprentices, colleges and site supervisors ensuring by due diligence that there are no ‘hiccups’ along the way and that course is passed.

ROK Electrical grant apprenticeships to a diverse and wide-ranging age group.

For example, we currently hire apprentices who have chosen to apply following their GCSE’s or A’Levels, some have degrees and have trained in other careers, others may have site experience but may have never qualified in a trade previously.

An apprenticeship can happen for the right candidate at any given time if they prove to demonstrate the desired attributes that the Company looks for in an Electrical Apprentice. Could this be you?

Please refer to our literature provided on this page explaining the apprenticeship pathway including expectations for applicants and the benefits of working for ROK Electrical as an apprentice.
