What you will do         

An apprenticeship with us will see you building new skills, while applying your knowledge to real-world live projects. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore your potential and you’ll enjoy full support from your line manager and an assigned mentor. You will be required to ensure that you adhere to safe working practices and also be able to take instructions and act upon them in a prompt and professional manner. We are offering a full-time permanent Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship Program 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 to achieve a level 3 Diploma. 
How you will do it

The 4 year apprenticeship would offer the opportunity to join the Mechanical Engineering team working alongside engineers who are leaders in their field expertise. You will learn about fixed firefighting systems, water, foam and gaseous on both commercial ships and offshore platforms. You will gain knowledge in the rules and regulations to provide guidance in designing and service of suppression systems. You will develop hands on basic mechanical training ‘on the tools’ at a local college and in the workshop. You will have the opportunity to gain higher education qualifications in Engineering Studies, ONC and with possible options to HNC and HND after completion of apprenticeship. You will develop computer aided design (CAD) skills to produce mechanical drawings. There will be opportunities to attend site facilities in the UK to see first-hand how the systems are installed, tested and commissioned.  You will have the opportunity for further development after the
apprenticeship has finished.
