About the role…
As a Groundcare and Construction Service Apprentice, you will be joining an experienced team of Field Service Engineers who will pass their knowledge onto the next generation. The work is extremely varied and will see you working on Kubota’s range of Tractors and ride-on mowers – the kind that are used by Golf Courses, Councils, Private Estates and Sports Grounds. Some of this takes place within our workshops, but much is out on-site where you begin with the basics of servicing before moving onto repairs, diagnostics and fault finding
The apprenticeship is run in conjunction with Kubota, with block release at college and then you will spend time with us to develop what you have learnt during your time away.
At college, you will cover mechanical principles, engines, hydraulic systems, transmissions and electrics – in fact, everything you need to build a sound engineering foundation.
On the assumption that you pass the apprenticeship, you will be well on the way to getting a service van of your own, and the beginnings of what should be the start of a very long and rewarding career.
You need to be able to work in a team and independently as necessary, to be punctual and self-motivated. You will have good communication skills, asking questions and listening to and acting upon answers. To be of a reliable and honest nature. Candidates will need to demonstrate good hand-eye coordination and a mechanical aptitude. To be able to enjoy the challenge of working in an industry with the diverse range of equipment that is employed.
Qualifications required: Ideally, you will have gained – GCSE grade 4 and above including Maths and English language and ideally a Science.
