Start your career with a leading UK manufacturer

Established in 2010, the Bri-Stor Group apprenticeship has developed into a leading Midlands programme. Working in partnership with JCB Academy, we offer our Apprentices a unique opportunity to gain a solid understanding of engineering theory combined with real world hands on experience.

To date, 95 apprentices have joined our programme with Atlas Coatings,  Bri-Stor Systems or Alpha Manufacturing and many of them have gone onto take up important roles within the business working in various departments.
We have invested in on site training facilities and have a dedicated apprenticeship manager who is responsible for guiding our apprentices through their course.
