Finning seeks applicants for apprenticeship programme

FINNING UK & Ireland is searching for its next generation of engineers after inviting applications for its apprenticeship programme.

A number of places are up for grabs in Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The recruitment process, beginning online, will last between three and six months with the successful candidates starting their new roles in September 2021.

Finning revealed it is looking for young people with a passion for a career in construction, power generation or technology. The deadline for applications is February 28.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to take place in an apprentice day, which is likely to be held virtually this year.  They will complete a series of exercises and will be invited to a discussion with a member of the Finning team about their future career prospects.

Successful candidates will be offered a four-year apprenticeship working in Finning’s equipment or power solutions division.

Marsha Myles, apprenticeship programme manager at Finning UK & Ireland, said, “Last year we had over 300 applicants for our apprenticeship programme. Since then, we’ve been awarded a place in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers. We would encourage anyone interested in kickstarting their career in engineering to apply and we actively encourage diversity amongst our workforce. In fact, four of last year’s 14 apprentices were female. We’d love to see even higher numbers in this year’s cohort.”
