If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding career in fitter-machining, fitter-fabricating, or electrical engineering, please check our current vacancies page regularly. Positions are also always advertised on Seek. Useful background information on apprenticeships is also available from Skills4Work.
Our recruitment process often starts late each year in preparation for apprentices completing their courses later in the year. Apprentices are important to the overall workshop development strategy and five to six new apprentices are taken on annually. At any one time, there will be 15-20 apprentices working their way through their training programme.
SCOTT apprentices are required to complete a 3-4 year apprenticeship and to complete the appropriate level 4 trade qualification – a National Certificate in Engineering. This can also lead onto the Level 5 Advanced Trade Certificate or Level 6 Diploma in Engineering programmes.
Apprentices spend time in many aspects of the business including fabrication, fitting, machine shop surface grinding, manual milling, manual turning through to CNC milling and turning, and commissioning for those that show competency in these areas.
