Metrology Apprenticeships - under 18 & 18+

We'll help you find your feet and then GROW and GROW...

You will join the team that has developed all of Gillette's new products over the last 60 years and will have the chance to impact the Gillette, Venus and Art of Shaving Brands that are used by hundreds of millions of men and women all over the world.

Our Research & Development facility contains one of the strongest P&G/Gillette engineering capabilities within Europe and is the main R&D facility for Gillette in the world.

Our apprenticeship is for Metrology, which is the Science of Measurement.

You will be learning the skills of Metrology and how we apply it.

You will be 100% supervised by a Metrology Technician & will build up a portfolio of inspection job write ups, including method development.

As you progress you will move on to greater application of Metrology techniques, and how to apply them in our daily work.

There is still 100% supervision at the beginning, but the jobs are now 'live' (for active projects) with an opportunity to really impact our research.

This is where you build up not only your Metrology capability, but also interpersonal skills, time management, accuracy, quality, confidence, and pace.

Accurate measurements are vital to our capability.

Most of the measurements we use go down to microns.


20 microns is 1/5 width of a human hair.

The Fusion razor has 56 individual measurement points & all must be within 20 microns tolerance, or you will get a bad shave.

Once we are happy with your skill & confidence level, we will gradually let you go solo on live jobs, but always with the safety net of a mentor.

A wide mix of training is provided for the duration of the apprenticeship, combining the daily tasks in the group where the apprentice is based, formal off-the-job training and the opportunity to practise new skills in a real work environment.
