Career Pathways to Match your Career Ambitions.

We offer three distinct pathways, ensuring that we have a diverse range of opportunities, wherever you might be on your professional journey.

Early Career & Apprenticeships.

This is a pathway designed for those entering our business straight from school or college, or from another industry mid-career: apprenticeships designed to develop, nurture and enhance skills for the food industry.  

Through our ABP Talent Academy we offer a diverse range of opportunities, spanning abattoir and boning hall programmes to engineering, manufacturing, IT, HR and accounting. We deliver our apprenticeships across the country, at a range of sites with different specialities and functions. 

ABP Apprenticeships.

Our apprenticeships last between one and four years, with flexible entry levels including both post-GCSE and A-Level. They’re available to anyone over 16 and not in full time education, as well as being open to existing ABP colleagues looking to change their roles or careers. 

Apprenticeships at ABP cover a huge range of professional areas, from butchery and technical to IT and HR – there are so many types available.
