First Look: Armstrongs Group Apprenticeship Scheme

Armstrongs Group is proud to announce the first details of our 2018 Apprenticeship Scheme. On Wednesday 17th October 2018, we attended the National Apprenticeship Show at Bolton Arena to advertise our scheme and the types of apprenticeship opportunities we have available.

This was also an excellent opportunity to invite our upcoming work placement student, Thomas, to come along and represent us. Thomas is joining our team on a 25 week college placement from Bolton Sixth Form College and will be placed with our Marketing and HR departments.

First Details

Our Apprenticeship scheme is open to anyone 16+ and combines on the job training with teaching. The scheme will cover all areas of our business including: masonry, accounting, plant mechanics, transportation, HR administration and much more.

Armstrongs Group are proud to support the national government apprenticeship scheme and are looking for anybody who is passionate, willing to learn, and hard working to apply. Previous experiences are not necessary and schemes will be tailored for successful candidates to ensure high quality and purposeful apprenticeships.

A big part of our apprenticeship scheme will be engineering. Armstrongs Group has 70 Scania tipper trucks ranging from 8 Wheeled to 14 wheeled, as well as plant machinery including Excavators and wheel loaders.  Maintenance engineering will play a key role in our business expansion and will include a variety of technical skills. A maintenance engineer’s work will involve: checking, repairing and servicing machinery, equipment, systems and infrastructure. Our maintenance engineers will ensure the smooth running and reliability of our construction machinery from excavators and wheels loaders to our trucks and entire fleet.

The apprenticeship will be based across our sites in Horwich, Clitheroe and Cumbria working and learning in a variety of different environments from quarry to office, Aggregates to AMIX.
