Dual Fuel Smart Metering Apprenticeships

Interested? Send your CV today!

We work closely with many utility companies and one of our partners are now offering a 54-week structured Apprenticeship programme to become a Dual Fuel Smart Meter Engineer which is designed to combine practical, classroom and field activity so that you’ll have the confidence and skills to one day fit smart meters by yourself. And as you learn, you’ll also get paid, and if you apply yourself, we’ll give you a permanent job at the end of it all. It’s an apprenticeship that’s going to make a big impact to the communities you work in.
