Our Apprentice stories

Meet Nicole
​​​​​​​
"Going down the Apprenticeship route was the best choice I ever made as there is no better way to learn than by doing it first hand and getting involved in the practical elements, rather than just reading from a textbook alone. Not only has the Mars Apprenticeship Scheme helped me gain qualifications but I now also have experience working in the factory, allowing me to apply the theory I have learnt."

Meet Raz
"Mars has taught me the values of not just being an associate but as a person, I’ve learnt through various pathways such as Mars University, other associates and training courses" Field Sales Associate
Meet Hannah
"Smile! We work for one of the most well known brands in the world and stores as well as shoppers LOVE our products. Your team and line manager will be on hand at all times to answer any questions and you won't be thrown in at the deep end. Just make sure to ask questions if you are unsure of anything - we love questions!" Field Sales Associate 
Where can an Apprenticeship at Mars take you?
"At 16 I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to do with my future, just knowing that I wanted to be hands-on in an engineering discipline. When the opportunity came to apply for the Mars Engineering Apprenticeship scheme, I knew I had to go for it! Now 12 years on and having progressed through several different qualifications and roles, I knew that I had made the right decision to join Mars! Throughout my whole apprenticeship (and later career), Mars invested time and resources into developing me both functionally and personally – be that through a structured apprenticeship or 1:1 development session with my Line Manager. In my career to date, I have worked with highly skilled engineers to solve complex problems, managed teams of fellow associates, and worked on some pretty cool regional projects that benefit thousands of associates. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the solid foundation that was my apprenticeship."
