As an executive agency of the Ministry of Defence our purpose is to maximise the impact of science and technology for the defence and security of the UK. Dstl offers the chance to work on mind-blowing projects in a truly unique environment. It’s an inspiring setting where you can develop wide-ranging skills & experience while learning from some of the brightest minds in the UK.
We're looking for tomorrow's experts to join us on our apprenticeships. Each scheme is an opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification and earn a salary – but that’s only the start. At Dstl, you won’t just find the unexpected science in the UK’s defence and security. You’ll find unexpected skills inside yourself that will help us keep the country safe.
We have a range of courses at different levels, from level 3 administration apprenticeships to degree-level apprenticeships in Science and Technology. Each one is very different but all involve a mix of classroom and hands-on learning.
DSTL recognises the importance of diversity and inclusion as people from diverse backgrounds bring fresh ideas. We are committed to building an inclusive working environment in which each employee fulfils their potential and maximises their contribution. We have a number of support networks to ensure all employees feel supported at work.
These include the following:
- Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Network
- Faith and Culture Network
- Parents and Carer Support Network
- Alternative Working Network
- Gender Equality Network
- New Starters Network
- Enabled Network, for people with visible and non-visible disabilities
To apply, you'll need to be a UK national and 18 or over when you start your apprenticeship with us (September2021).
