You will gain:

  • a unique insight into our business, products and team

  • knowledge of workshop practices
  • a solid understanding of what an apprenticeship with us will involve.

We are looking for:

  • team players
  • great communication skills
  • eagerness to learn
  • passion for the industry
  • drive to achieve and exceed expectations.

At the successful completion of your work experience, you may be invited to apply for a Heavy Diesel Technician Apprenticeship with us, but work experience does not guarantee you will be offered an Apprenticeship. Please check out the Apprentice tab on the Careers Page of our website to see the criteria required to be considered for an apprenticeship.

Exact locations of apprenticeships in 2022 will not be confirmed until July/August 2021, but opportunities for work experience exist in all our branch locations. Work experience placements are limited at each location so do not delay in submitting an application.

Please apply for work experience by visiting our website here. After registering on our Careers Page, you will need to submit a cover letter and your CV along with your application. Please note you will receive an email link to complete our online working style and preference assessment. To progress your application, this must be completed.
