Here at Alfred H Knight we are very supportive of apprenticeships as a stream of development. Whether it be for those who are just starting out in the world of work, or those who have been working with us for many years.

Apprenticeships are no longer just for school leavers in vocational occupations. They are now designed to develop employees alongside their work. AHK views apprenticeships as a productive and effective way to grow and develop a motivated, qualified and skilled workforce.

Do you have what it takes?

Over the last 140 years AHK has grown within the Metals, Minerals and Solid Fuels industry. We have over 3,000 colleagues across the world sharing their knowledge and experience with each other. While AHK is a global company, we pride ourselves on our family values. We remain a privately owned company, with the fifth generation of the founding family working within the business.

If you would like to join a company who are passionate about their people, forward thinking and continuously growing then apply now.
