At HE Simm we continually look to recruit talented and motivated individuals for both on-site and office based schemes.


Our Apprentice Schemes will generally begin in September to coincide with the start of the school year, but could potentially start earlier.

On Site Scheme

Our Trade Based Scheme would be over 4 years and candidates would be based on a building site 4 days a week, with 1 day release for classroom learning at college. From this they will ultimately gain qualifications to become an approved electrician, an advanced plumber or a mechanical senior craftsman.

Office Based Scheme

Our Office Based Scheme would involve a student apprenticeship over 4 years including an ONC or a HNC in Building Services or Building Studies, combining college work with site and office based experience across all our departments. For example, your first year and potentially your second will be site based, followed by 2-3 years moving through all departments gaining experience in each phase. All of the courses will be delivered over a 4 year period and geared towards giving candidates the best possible start with industry leading classroom and site based experience crucial for any burgeoning career. The following is a brief list of requirements that candidates will require in order to progress onto one of HE Simm’s apprenticeship schemes:

  • 2x A Levels or equivalent at Grade C (office based) and 6x GCSE’s at Grade C inclusive of English, Maths and a Science (site and office based);
  • A clean driving licence;
  • An awareness of health and safety standards (CSCS Card preferable but not essential); and
  • A drive to learn and be part of a high performing team.
