Liebherr apprentices

Liebherr apprentices

The highly successful Liebherr National Apprentice Scheme has taken on five new applicants, ranging from school leavers aged 16 to ex-servicemen aged 28. This year, for obvious reasons, recruitment was driven directly from the Liebherr Job Portal and the interview process was carried out entirely online.

Apprentices are taken on in Construction Equipment Maintenance Engineering, Welding/Fabrication, Paintshop and Business Support. Training includes a solid grounding in the technical aspects of their chosen apprenticeship with the necessary support to develop skills to some of the highest levels in the industry. Nationwide travel between Liebherr’s operational facilities, exchange programmes and training at manufacturing facilities Europe-wide are also a vital part of the scheme. All apprentices are assigned a dedicated mentor always there to lend an ear and to identify ongoing development needs.  Additionally, apprentices all attend a local college on a part-time basis which lead towards their NVQ qualification.

Pictured above, Liebherr’s 2020 Apprentices are, from left to right: Sam Kingsbury (Harbour Mobile Crane Engineer Apprentice), Max Evans-Lockett (Earthmoving Machine Engineer Apprentice), Kyle Harrison (Paint Shop Operative Apprentice), Ed Totman (Mobile Crane Engineer Apprentice) and Joe Ryan (Earthmoving Machine Engineer Apprentice).
