Science & Manufacturing Apprentice

Science & Manufacturing Apprentice
We have opened a new and exciting opportunity within our Production environment for an individual to work alongside our experienced team, gaining both qualifications and experience, in a supportive and experienced environment. This is a tried and tested Apprenticeship with us at Eisai, and we are looking to replicate our former success with new talent. 

As an Apprentice, you will take part in the Level 3 Science Manufacturing Technician qualification, which takes 24 months to complete. Your studies will take part online, giving you flexibility in where you take part in your studies. You will attend online seminars, workshops and training in order to complete your qualification, and will have both an online tutor to support, alongside a dedicated Line Manager who will guide you through your course.

You will undertake many activities as part of your role, including:
Preparation for batch manufacture
To set-up production equipment to ensure correct functionality and calibration compliance
Start up, run and finish production batches using production equipment and automated systems within the validated process parameters following approved MBR’s and production procedures.
Monitor production process steps including carrying out in-process tests, yield calculations, product sampling and inspection to ensure quality is maintained.
Fault finding and rectification on processes and equipment, by liaising with other departments where necessary.
Participate in quality investigations.

Once you’ve completed your Apprenticeship, the types of roles you would look to go into are as a Packaging Operator or a Manufacturing Operator. You could also consider studying towards another Apprenticeship, to continue to learn and earn. Our Apprentices form part of our longer-term resourcing strategy and go on to succeed within their roles. 
You will gain an annual salary increase, subject to performance both in the workplace and your studies. 

Role Requirements

We are committed to train and support you as you enter your Apprenticeship, but there are a few things that we need you to consider:

It’s desirable for you to have 5 GCSE’s, including Maths, English and Science, but if you don’t hold this level of qualification, you will be supported through a Level 2 Maths & English Qualification. 
The role is fully site-based, and you will be expected to attend our Hatfield EKC to work.
You may be required to take part in shift-work, including early starts and evenings. Should you complete overtime, you will be offered an additional shift allowance.
You will study whilst you learn, meaning you will need to ensure your studies are completed, alongside your day-to-day responsibilities. 

Application Process
Our stages of Application look like this:
You’ll be asked to complete an online application form, which should take around 15-30 minutes to complete.
This will go to a member of our Emerging Talent Team and external Apprenticeship partner Cogent Skills, who will review your application and confirm if you have been selected for our next stage
The next stage will be a short telephone interview, to check your suitability for the role. A member of the Cogent Skills Team will ask you competency-based questions based on the requirements of the role.
Should you be successful, you will be invited to an on-site interview process, which a member of our dedicated Emerging Talent Team will support you with.
Fingers crossed – you will receive an offer from us and will be invited to join your Emerging Talent cohort on the 2nd September 2024.
