Applications are now open for a Workshop Technician Apprenticeship

Workshop Technician Apprenticeship
This training opportunity will span over a period of two years and will offer the right candidate the chance to work in our busy Service workshops.

This opportunity will develop your skills to the highest standard in all aspects of vehicle maintenance and repair work, where you will be working on a range of vehicles including cars, motorbikes, vans, LGVs, fire engines and specialist Fire and Rescue equipment.

  • Attend College to achieve Level 2 NVQ in Heavy Vehicle Maintenance and Repair
