What you will do

An apprenticeship with us will see you building new skills, while applying your knowledge to real-world live projects and environments. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore your potential and you’ll enjoy full support from your line manager and a mentor. We are offering a full-time permanent Level 3 Apprenticeship Programme for talented people. This is a genuine alternative to university for people who have a passion for engineering and who want to launch their career with us. The apprenticeship will combine on-the-job work experience, with time at college.

How you will do it 

The aim would be to progress the apprentice through both college for technical qualifications and provide practical exposure / experience of industrial refrigeration plant, equipment and systems.

Initially there would be essential health and safety training along with the basic industrial site requirements. Following successful completion of these courses the apprentice would work along with qualified and experienced technicians to work / support out in the field with planned and reactive maintenance and service works on both Industrial and commercial refrigeration systems.

The first 3 months would be around a general orientation introduction to the types of sites, systems and works undertaken, followed by basic support activities. This would increase in line with knowledge and experience gained on site and via college.  

The successful apprentice will enroll on to the Advanced Refrigeration Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Engineering Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is 3 years induration during which you will be trained in the design, installation, routine maintenance, reactive service, commissioning and de-commissioning of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump systems.  
You will attend college on a day release or block release basis depending on your location. If you are required to stay away from home the cost of travel, accommodation and meals will be covered by the company.
