Volvo recruitment stepped up

Volvo will be taking on a minimum on 10 new apprentices for its next Body and Paint Apprentice Programme.

They will add to the 37 apprentices already working across the Volvo approved bodyshop network.

Steve Plunkett, Volvo Body & Paint Programme development manager, said, ‘Each and every one of us has a responsibility to ensure that we bring young people into the industry, we are on the verge of a major skills crisis in the industry if we fail to do this.

‘We now have 37 Body and Paint apprentices and I think that this deserves a very special thank you to those who have supported this initiative during the past three years as it has been a resounding success to date.

‘We are already logging interest from the network for the scheme in 2019, so if you have not registered with the recruitment team but would like to do so, then please contact Jenny Allsop at’
