At Howdens we’re proud of our apprenticeship programme; it is the ideal way to develop and prepare people for a productive and stable career. It helps us to find new staff who understand and can help us maintain our special way of working, whilst contributing to the growth of our business.

From the first day’s training and during integration into the workplace, we want our apprentices to find a warm welcome from colleagues who have genuine passion about the department they work in. That’s the best way to make apprentices feel valued, secure and in a position to make long-term commitment to Howdens.

We work in partnership with carefully selected Apprenticeship Training Providers which enables us to provide the highest possible standard of training. An apprenticeship is an excellent foundation for a career with Howdens, and many of our apprentices have gone on to achieve success in specialist roles.

With apprenticeships available across much of our business including our Depots, Logistics, Manufacturing, Engineering, and IT, there is a role for everyone across our teams.
