Working at Bayer
As an apprentice you can earn and learn at the same time!
An apprenticeship at Bayer is the perfect partnership, as an employer we offer young people the opportunity and tools to learn, gain all important experience and develop new skills whilst working towards NVQ qualifications. In return we receive enthusiasm, a positive attitude, drive and a willingness to learn with a fresh viewpoint for generating ideas. Bayer has been providing apprenticeships in the UK since 2013 from one position in the first year to 10 positions in 2016 all aligned to the business needs. It’s a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable work experience at a reputable company with great future prospects whilst working towards a qualification.

Bayer’s support for apprentices is rewarded with an Investment in Training Award
Bayer’s support for young people through the apprenticeship scheme has been recognised with an Investment in Training Award.
The award has been given by work training provider West Berkshire Training Consortium (WBTC), which has helped introduce five apprentices to Bayer over the past two years. Members of the training consortium presented the certificate to people involved in instigating the apprenticeship programme at Bayer, along with some of the apprentices who have benefited from the scheme.
Matt Garvey, managing director at WBTC, said ‘This is the fifth year of the WBTC Investment in Training Awards in which employers are assessed against six criteria. These benchmarks include the success rates of apprentices, their progression in the business and the culture of learning within the employer.
“In receiving our highest award Bayer has demonstrated first class standards of excellence across all categories. They have provided superb training, support and career prospects to their current apprentices making them a model employer. It has been a pleasure to present Bayer with this award. I know that they are proud of their achievements as are all of us at WBTC.”
