Ours is a great place to start if you want to go a long way.  

  • About the Sales Apprenticeship

    Joining us as an apprentice in Sales is great way in to a professional career, offers lots of opportunity for growth and the chance to work with and learn from professionals across our business who see you as the next chapter in the story of MAN’s success.

    So while the apprenticeship is structured, it’s also flexible. You will be supported by your manager and mentor and can tailor the apprenticeship to promote your strengths and address any gaps in your skills or knowledge.  

    MAN takes its commitment to you as an apprentice very seriously. So, if you put in the hard work and take advantage of the opportunities, you’ll be well equipped for a career as a high-performing sales professional with practically unlimited opportunities.  

  • About the Team

    Across the individual sales regions, each team is like a family. So, within the wider international business, you’ll find your place with friendly, supportive people who want you to succeed. Everyone here works together to make the sale and get the job done.

    Plus, because there are such a range of personalities, abilities and knowledge, you’ll be learning on the job from some of best in the business.

    Beyond the team, you’ll find colleagues in all other departments are just as supportive and encouraging, doing whatever they can to help you deliver for your customers.

  • Life as an Apprentice

    As an apprentice, you’ll find every day is different. That’s all part of the fast and dynamic learning curve that brings career-building challenge and opportunity in equal measure.

    Go all in and you’ll find your strengths, which you can build on and share, and you’ll discover areas for development. MAN will help you to identify these and develop your skills in his area. And as there is always room for improvement, once you’ve mastered one area, you’ll be encouraged to learn more.  

    Along the way, you’ll also learn by helping others in your team. And MAN will develop projects suited to your strengths and that drive your learning.

    Part of this learning may be to take on responsibilities that allow your strengths to shine, and you’ll be encouraged to work with and learn from colleagues who have different work styles. It’s a great way to find out what works best for you.

  • Our Approach to Learning

    We tailor our approach to learning around making sure you benefit from a varied experience with a focus on helping you to achieve Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Business & Administration.

    That includes numerous work placements across different departments to give you real insight into what we do and how we do it. It’s an invaluable opportunity to see all the different roles from another perspective and understand how each department works.

    Your apprenticeship also offers classroom-based teaching that you can put into practice on-the-job – it’s a great way to accelerate and reinforce learning.

    Plus, you’ll be supported to improve and refine your skills throughout. It’s all about making sure you achieve – and exceed – your potential.

  • Career Pathways

    The core skills you learn on a MAN Sales apprenticeship are the foundation to a successful and progressive career. They will ensure you’re prepared for many different opportunities across the business, into management and – as MAN is a global business – around the world.
