Our apprenticeship programme is a four-year programme and starts with 12 month “off the job training” at one of our training providers.  Our main provider is Themis at Burnley College who have state of the art engineering facilities.   This is then followed by three years at the company with day release to college which will help you gain the skills and experience necessary for your roles.

The apprenticeships that we are offering this year at Emerson and Renwick are:

  • CNC Machinist
  • Electrical Fitter
  • Mechanical Fitter

Our main place of work is in Church, Accrington near to Exit 7 of the M65 and we currently employing 170 people.


We receive a high volume of applications every year therefore it is important that you apply at the earliest opportunity.
