Work for Us
We are a young fast-growing company with an exciting and disruptive technology for sustainable transportation. As we grow internationally, new exciting opportunities for apprentices, graduates and experienced professionals will arise both in the UK and in other markets. To help drive our global expansion we look for individuals who are naturally curious, passionate about their subject and self-starting. A natural ability to network and form strong collaborative relationships within the organisation and beyond with major global companies is very important.
We have an open organisation structure without bureaucracy and hierarchies that often prevail in large established companies. Many of our staff have joined us from major corporations, finding the culture and challenges refreshing and providing the opportunity to work without the constraints of corporate rules or tightly-specified job descriptions. However, if you need predictability and easy missions, perhaps our company is not for you.
Talent progression is unlimited, driven both commitment by the individual and the company. There are both technical and managerial career paths, meaning that technical or functional specialists can advance in their career without having to assume a managerial position. A measure of success will be that after working at ITL, with our investment in your development and giving you responsibility early, your market worth with be significantly higher than when you joined us.
You will have opportunities to acquire new skills and professional connections in technical, operations and commercial domains and engage in major programmes with some of the world’s leading automotive, aerospace and consumer goods companies in Europe, China and North America.
Hasina started working at Impression Technologies in early 2018 as an Executive Assistant to the Senior Management Team. We were able to secure a Level 4 Marketing Executive Apprenticeship with Professional Academy for Hasina. She is due to finish the course during 2022 with the goal of achieving a Merit or higher. Hasina plans to do her Level 6 after completing her Level 4. Her current title now is Executive and Marketing Assistant. Her role is more varied, with a bigger focus on global marketing activities rather than administration – covering social media, website and conference management.
Hasina expresses that she is really enjoying the apprenticeship and is learning a lot of new knowledge that can be applied to her role directly. She is picking up new skills all the time and has a good team behind her supporting her learning journey.
“Impression Technologies is the perfect place to do an apprenticeship, as it’s a new and developing company. I feel like I am growing with the company and applying my new knowledge to the business. I have already learned so much on the job, and I feel more confident in my role. I am looking forward to finishing my course and reflecting on what I have learned.”
Two other apprentices that joined us are Mohammed and Lewis.

Lewis’s line manager has noticed that he has made significant progress with regards to his shop floor activities and procedures/processes.
