Shipyard Group Harland & Wolff opens apprenticeship program for job applicants

Harland & Wolff plc shipyard group is pleased to announce an apprenticeship program which is now open for applications.

Present in all five Harland & Wolff operations (Appledore, Arnish, Belfast, Methil and its head office in London), the group will seek to recruit a significant number of apprentices as work picks up speed. The next promotion of apprentices will arrive on site in August/September 2022.

Applications will close at 5:00 p.m. on May 6, 2022.

To apply, prospective employees must complete the application form which can be found here. For the moment, CVs will not be taken into account.

Harland & Wolff would also like to hear from newly qualified apprentices as well as those who are halfway through their course or have not been able to complete their apprenticeship due to COVID-19/recent job loss.

For successful applicants, the next step will include an on-site assessment day and interview that will take place between May 23rd and June 3rd. We ask applicants to keep dates between this period available.

Additionally, H&W is looking for motivated team players with good communication and practical skills. Prospective apprentices must also have five GCSEs/Standard Grades/Nationals or equivalent, including Maths, English, Technical and Craft.

Kelly O’Rourke, Group Human Resources Director, commented: “We are delighted to launch the second year of our successful Harland & Wolff apprenticeship programme, providing quality opportunities for up to 150 new members of our team. . This year we are opening the program to our four yards in Belfast, Methil, Arnish and Appledore as well as our head office in London. The continued revitalization and growth of Harland & Wolff means that we are now able to offer a unique range of roles, across a full range of trades and right up to support and corporate communication roles.
