I want to have a bright future
When you join E.ON as an apprentice on our four-year Street Lighting Installation and Maintenance scheme, you can look forward to a bright future. With an E.ON apprenticeship you will get the best of both worlds – an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and earn a competitive salary without missing out on the chance to study (debt-free) for useful qualifications.
 
You’ll finish the apprenticeship with qualifications in highways electrical systems and electrical power engineering as well as a level 3 NVQ in street lighting – and the chance to apply for a permanent role with us. This is a real path to a valuable career for people with the right qualities – in fact, the head of our street lighting department is just one of the people who started out as an E.ON apprentice.
 
As an Apprentice I want to gain valuable skills and experience
You’ll do that by working from your local depot. You’ll spend most of your time out and about, learning about all technical aspects of street lighting and its upkeep. You will also attend college to gain your formal qualifications and training courses will be provided to learn trade skills such as plant operation and live electrical connections to the distribution network. Learning from experienced professionals and mentors you’ll develop a comprehensive understanding of street lighting as a whole and valuable experience with a major energy solutions company.
