Ever sat on the toilet and wondered how your toilet paper was made?

You may be surprised to know that to make one toilet roll, the machinery involved is larger than a jumbo jet, the machine speed is faster than the motorway speed limit, and the process involves recycling paper, water and energy. If you are interested in learning more, then our two-year Process Operator Apprenticeship may be just for you.

About the Role

Essity offers the opportunity for you to join a fast-moving consumer goods business which embraces both innovation and diversity with the goal of making a difference to people’s lives. We manufacture many leading brands – Cushelle, Velvet, Plenty, Tork and Bodyform to name a few.

We’re looking for people who embody our values, aren’t afraid to challenge, innovate, experiment, and move at a fast pace. We’re always looking for ways to improve our products and ourselves. If this is you, we’d love to hear from you. 

What You Will Do

Our Process Operator Apprenticeship will equip you with the skills you need to become an expert in your field and allow you to give input as to how you think we can do things better in the future.

This is a fantastic opportunity to earn while you learn. You will study for a nationally recognised NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations.  The training will be delivered on-site and supported by our training provider who will visit you on-site regularly.  You will be responsible for meeting all the training targets and producing a portfolio of evidence to support your learning.

Who You Are

You must be driven to succeed with a positive attitude, and be happy to work as part of a team to ensure our processes run efficiently and safely.
