I’m thinking of applying as an Apprentice

Why would I want to join Amazon as an Apprentice?
Apprenticeships offer you an opportunity to develop your skills in a specific field, gain qualifications aligned to that area and work in a commercial team that will support you as you continue to develop your understanding and expertise. You will graduate from your programme with industry skills and recognised formal qualifications. You will be paid a monthly salary and will qualify for the usual perks of being an Amazonian.
What’s the best way to choose the best programme for me?
Review our programme statements on our Programme Overview page. These are aligned to each scheme and provide an overview of the ambition, aptitude and attitude necessary to succeed.
What are the timelines for application?
Applications for our Apprenticeship programmes will open on the 11th December 2023. The timeline for each does vary so familiarise yourself with what will happen and when. Following your application (and if you meet the eligibility criteria) you will receive emails from our Recruitment Team outlining the next stages of the recruitment process. If you are successful in being offered a place on any of our non-degree Apprentice programmes, you can expect to start with us on in July 2024. If you're offered a place on one of our degree Apprentice programmes, you expect to start with us in September 2024.

Specific start dates may vary per programme, you will be able to view each schemes start date from our programme overview page. In order to be considered for the opportunity, you must be available to start on the specified start date.
What is the process to become an Apprentice?
We have created a consistent process that is focused on drawing out strengths whilst providing candidates opportunities to showcase their passions. The different stages (video interviews and Assessment Centres) will help us understand more about your academic abilities, why you think Amazon is a good fit for you and why you are interested in the programme you have applied for. Please review the Programme Overview page – each scheme has a clear outline of the process and associated timelines for application.
What sort of support can I expect as an Apprentice?
We offer comprehensive support throughout your course. You will be aligned to a programme and business area and receive on the job training from your manager and the team around you.
