Apprenticeships

Start your career at Greggs with an apprenticeship and you’ll get all the benefits of working with us – and an apprenticeship qualification too!

Our apprentices bring fresh ideas and a passion to develop both themselves and the wider Greggs business. The training an apprenticeship offers gives a broader insight and more opportunity to reflect which has resulted in some of our apprentices finding long term careers, promotion and reward as part of our Greggs Family.

Like all the best things, it won’t come easy. You’ll be working hard in your role and achieving your apprenticeship, but we’ll give you time to spend on your studies and lots of support too.

 

 

"I get to learn whilst I earn"

 

 

So what's in it for me?

A Proper Wage.
We pay our apprentices significantly more than the apprentice minimum wage with rates ranging from £6.36 to £8.22. You’ll also enjoy all the fantastic benefits of working at Greggs, including staff discount and profit share too.

 

Career progression.
You’ll gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours to have a great career within Retail, with the opportunity to progress into a retail management role at the end of your apprenticeship. You’ll also receive 20% of your working time to spend on studying for your apprenticeship including workshops, workbooks, e-learning and practical training, all with plenty of support from your manager and your Greggs Apprenticeship Coach.

 

A Recognised Apprenticeship Qualification.
Your apprenticeship works towards an industry recognised qualification, along with English and Maths too (as well as ICT if you’re in Scotland).
