By choosing an apprenticeship at Diamond you will be earning while you learn, and working at a cutting-edge science facility that challenges the boundaries of Engineering. You’ll be working alongside leading scientists and engineers from all over the world, delivering world-changing research.
Diamond is the UK's national synchrotron science facility. It's shaped like a huge ring, and is a bit like a giant microscope. Diamond speeds up electrons to near light speeds, producing a light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. These bright beams are then directed off into laboratories known as ‘beamlines’; here scientists use the light to study everything from viruses and vaccines to fossils and jet engines.

Engineers and Technicians are a vital force in driving progress. Their work helps to create functional and advanced societies, and cutting-edge engineering is at the heart of scientific research. The UK is not producing anywhere near enough engineers and technicians on a year by year basis. Training in this field is vital and subsequently you will become a very sought after commodity setting you up for an interesting, worthwhile and rewarding career with loads of future job opportunities. Here at Diamond we passionately believe that by joining our apprenticeship programme you will have the opportunity to work and learn within an exciting and unique working environment with a vast array of scientific research that really does make a difference in shaping and changing the world and our understanding of it.
