Proof of qualifications will be required before you can be accepted onto the apprenticeship.

Please note:

All applicants regardless of entry requirements will be emailed an Initial Assessment to complete as part of the recruitment procedure. This is an online assessment in English and maths and can be completed at your preferred location remotely. 

Currently, due to COVID19 we are not usually offering Initial Assessment appointments at either campus. Those without the stated entry requirements or awaiting GCSE/GCSE retake grades, will be offered further advice and guidance to support their application if required.

Future prospects

If the apprentice is successful there will be the opportunity to stay with Lucid as a full-time junior system engineer. Lucid Systems currently have 2 engineers that were previously apprentices with us and are continuing to grow with the company.

Things to consider

Some jobs may require an onsite visit so a car would be useful but not essential.

The job will involve face to face customer interaction so good personal hygiene is essential.
