Early Careers

About Us

Kohler Mira has a long history of successful early careers programmes; investment in our employees’ development, to support every individual to become the best version of themselves, is a huge part of our culture. All of our early careers opportunities are tailored to the individual, build a breadth of experience across a range of departments, with tailored support in place.

Be part of our Award Winning Business

Kohler Mira were overjoyed to be announced as winner of the Training Provider of the Year at the 2019 Gloucestershire Live Apprentice Awards.

The award was given because of the ongoing support and development that we give to our apprentices above and beyond their apprenticeship training. We want to support our apprentices to become them best version of themselves, which means supporting their development outside their role through mentoring, training, involvement in our STEM programme, Apprentice Association and so much more.

We were also incredible proud of our third year Engineering Apprentice, Emma Meek, who was shortlisted as a finalist in the Outstanding Apprentice of the Year (Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing).

Engineering Apprenticeships

Engineering Apprenticeships at Kohler Mira offer you the chance to study and rotate through our engineering functions from Manufacturing to Product Design. This gives you the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills along the way, and discover which business area excites you most. 

Engineering Apprentices will spend their first year studying at GET College, in Barnwood (Gloucester); here you will learn all the fundamental skills you will need to become a successful engineer. You will have the opportunity to apply your skills throughout your first year, as you will be onsite during college breaks.

From second year onwards, you will be based onsite at Kohler Mira, whilst continuing to attend to college one day a week. Once you have completed your Level 3 Apprenticeship, subject to performance and aspiration, you will progress to study HNC/D.
