An apprenticeship at Abcam is a brilliant opportunity, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what some of our current Science Apprentices have to say.

Jade Apprentice Laboratory Technician, Innovation & Manufacturing - Purification

I’m currently doing a level 4 Industrial Biology HNC Apprenticeship. Before joining Abcam, I completed my A-levels in Human Biology, Psychology, and Physical Education. I work in the Purification and Conjugation department and am thoroughly enjoying working with everyone and meeting new people. I have always been passionate and enthusiastic about science and cannot wait to develop further understanding and knowledge. I look forward to contributing to Abcam and am very grateful to be given this amazing opportunity.

Elliot Apprentice Laboratory Technician, Innovation & Manufacturing – Cell Culture

I'm one of 2 new apprentices at Abcam, studying for both a level 3 lab competence and a level 4 biological sciences technical qualification. My role here is in the cell sciences team and I have loved every minute so far, especially being able to meet a whole range of new people and, of course, learn new things every day. Before taking this first step into a career, I had studied A-Levels at Bury St Edmunds in Math, Biology, Psychology and English literature. I hope I can grow my scientific knowledge and become a capable member of the team.
