WHO SHOULD APPLY?

The person we're looking for must have an excellent work ethic, a willingness to continue their learning path and excellent communication skills. Ideally our client is looking for a 2nd or 3rd year mechanical fitter apprentice that has worked in a manufacturing environment and has gained competency in lathe and mill operation as well as welding skills and is looking to diversify their current skills and experience.

They would look at someone who is a first year, however due to the type of hydraulic work they do you may need to be rotated to a new host at the end of your 2nd year to gain the necessary experience to complete your apprenticeship.
