They will complete a series of exercises and will be invited to a discussion with a member of the Finning team about their future career prospects. Successful candidates will be offered a four-year apprenticeship working in its equipment or power solutions division.

    “Last year we had over 300 applicants for our apprenticeship programme,” explained Marsha Myles, Apprenticeship Programme Manager at Finning UK & Ireland. “Since then, we’ve been awarded a place in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers. We would encourage anyone interested in kickstarting their career in engineering to apply and we actively encourage diversity amongst our workforce. In fact, four of last year’s 14 apprentices were female. We’d love to see even higher numbers in this year’s cohort.”
