Scania dealer, TruckEast has begun its search for its next intake of hgv apprentice technicians, with 13 apprenticeships on offer as part of its September 2023 programme.
Employed by TruckEast at one of its branches across East Anglia, apprentices will work with industry-leading technology in heavy trucks, buses and engines. Right
from the start they will get their hands on some of the world’s finest vehicles and see first-hand how the business operates from the ground up.
Across a three-year programme, apprentices will learn to diagnose and repair faults, how to use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and carry out routine maintenance.
Through a combination of practical and theoretical learning; the Scania programme is designed to make the most of each individual’s potential. Furthermore, at the end of the course they graduate with two industry-recognised qualifications and begin the next step in their career.
Group Aftersales Director, Martyn Clipston states,
“This programme offers a fantastic opportunity for young, talented people who want an alternative to university. Our apprentices are an investment in our future, and we offer a rewarding and fast-paced environment that allows them to earn whilst learning their trade.”
As part of the apprenticeship programme with TruckEast, individuals receive a toolbox worth over £2,000 and entry into the company’s loyalty savings scheme.
Committed to the future of its business, apprentices currently make up just over 6% of the total workforce at TruckEast, and the investment does not stop after graduation. Through continuous development opportunities, graduates can progress further and achieve IRTEC qualifications, master technician and escalation technician status or become part of the management team.
Across the wider business, TruckEast also offer apprenticeships in parts, service and administration.
