Description

The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) in Cambridge has an exciting Associate Project Management Apprenticeship. BAS is currently undergoing a multi-million pound project investing in improving and modernising its Antarctic infrastructure which includes its research stations. The apprentice will be based within the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme to support the next phase in this programme which will incorporate the decarbonisation of the UK’s main research station at the Rothera Research Station in the Antarctic and the redevelopment of Signy Research Station in the South Orkney Islands as a zero emissions station.

BAS is part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the UK's leading funder of environmental science. Our scientists study and monitor the physical, chemical and biological processes on which our planet and life itself depends – from pole to pole, to the deep Earth and oceans, to the atmosphere and space.

With training and support from experts in their fields, you’ll relish the opportunity to develop your knowledge, skills and behaviours within Project Management whilst making a real difference in your role. If working with innovative technologies on world-leading research isn’t enough, you will be able to develop both professionally and as a critical member of the team in an environment you won’t find anywhere else.
We will support you every step of the way, helping you make the most of your opportunities and to achieve the goals you already have – and those you have yet to discover!
