TruckEast begins search for apprentices

TruckEast has begun its search for its next intake of HGV apprentice technicians, with 13 apprenticeships on offer as part of its September 2023 programme.

Apprentices, who will receive a toolbox worth over £2,000 and entry into the company’s loyalty savings scheme, will work with industry-leading technology in heavy trucks, buses and engines and learn first-hand how the business operates from the ground up.

Across a three-year programme which combines practical and theoretical training, apprentices will learn to diagnose and repair faults, how to use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and carry out routine maintenance.

Group aftersales director Martyn Clipston said: “This programme offers a fantastic opportunity for young, talented people who want an alternative to university. Our apprentices are an investment in our future, and we offer a rewarding and fast-paced environment that allows them to earn whilst learning their trade.”

Committed to the future of its business, apprentices currently make up just over six per cent of the total workforce at TruckEast, and the investment does not stop after graduation. Through continuous development opportunities, graduates can progress further and achieve IRTEC qualifications, master technician and escalation technician status or become part of the management team.
