David Nieper has teamed up with Warwick University to offer an eight-week paid apprenticeship as part of its efforts to measure its carbon footprint.

The role – project assistant: manufacturing emissions assessment – will support the Alfreton company’s work on measuring its impact on the environment.

The job advert explains: “This role involves calculating the emissions of manufacturing clothing from raw material extraction to point of sale and understanding the impact of bringing printing, dying and garment manufacture activities to the UK.

“The project offers David Nieper Limited the opportunity to measure the impact of recent interventions in energy generation and consumption on the carbon footprint of their products.

“The internship will also create the matric framework for the carbon checker project, collating key criteria for an emissions assessment in a later project.”

The successful applicant will update a previously published report on the carbon footprint of clothes manufactured at David Nieper.

Applicants must have an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in manufacturing engineering, environmental science or similar.

The apprenticeship – due to start of September 26 – is full-time and will be based in Alfreton. It has a rate of pay of £10.85 per hour.

The deadline for applications is Sunday, August 14.

The apprenticeship is part of Warwick University’s WMG Internship Programme.
