SYNETIQ is on the lookout for new apprentices after launching a ‘first of its kind’ motor-recycling apprenticeship scheme, creating new career opportunities within the vehicle recycling industry.
The Metal Recycling Operative apprenticeship starts in September with the business offering successful apprentices a job once qualified working at one of the company’s sites at either Doncaster, Winsford or Gloucester.
What you will learn
Apprentices will take part in a mixture of on and off-the-job learning and will be equipped with their own PPE and tools. Normally dismantlers have to use their own tools. Practical training includes assessing over 800 cars a week in SYNETIQ’s ‘Landing Pad’ where apprentices will learn to identify salvageable parts for reuse – also known as green parts.
In addition, apprentices will experience the depollution process, learn engine prepping techniques and how to safely dismantle vehicles.
Apprentices will gain employability skills such as:
- Health and safety awareness
- Manual handling
- Plant equipment training
- The opportunity to gain an understanding of electric vehicles
- Vehicle and parts knowledge
You must have a:
- Good work ethic prepared to get hands dirty
- Level of concern for own health safety and that of others
- Drive to work in a practical automotive environment
- Passion about vehicles and parts
- Team player attitude
- Respect for others
- Positive attitude
The application criteria
All apprentices must have Level one in English and Maths (equivalent to GSCE grade D-G or 1-3). If apprentices do not have this qualification, additional time will be required to bring them to this level.
