About the role

We’re looking for a motivated and enthusiastic apprentice to join our Buildings, Environment and Workplace team as a Facilities Management Apprentice.


During your time in this role, you will complete the British Institute of Facilities Management apprenticeship programme.


This apprenticeship will give you:

  • experience supporting a range of teams in this department, building key relationships across Wellcome
  • practical experience running our Wellcome CAFM (computer-aided facilities management) system
  • broad experience working on a range of projects across different areas, with the opportunity to make a genuine contribution to critical projects


About you

To be successful, you will need to have:

  • a genuine interest in buildings, environment and workplace services
  • a strong commitment to successfully completing the apprenticeship
  • a positive attitude towards teamwork and the ability to work well with others
  • ability to communicate effectively and sensitively with customers to resolve enquiries, both orally and in writing
  • a high standard of reliability and time keeping
  • a strong level of perseverance and resilience to cope with challenging work
  • GCSE (or equivalent) standard of English, maths, and either a science or a technical subject
  • experience working with MS software applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint, Excel)


A qualification in a technical or design subject at GCSE or equivalent would be beneficial but not essential, as would a general understanding of health and safety in the workplace and the ability to flexibly adapt to changing demands.
