Arriva London Engineering Apprenticeship opportunities

  
  

Arriva London is one of the largest bus operators in London, and we are currently looking for fifteen Engineering apprentices to learn how to fix and maintain our buses. We are committed to training and developing the talent of tomorrow, and we have great career opportunities for suitable candidates.  Our apprenticeships are for 4 years with core training in: Mechanics and Electrics and Accident Repair and Bodywork.

As part of National Apprentice week we will be running three apprentice information sessions on Friday 18th March 2016, at our Edmonton Engineering Training Academy, starting at 10:00, 12:00 and 14:00.

This is an opportunity for you to come in and discuss our apprenticeship scheme, meet the Engineering team, including some of our current apprentices, have a tour of the garage, ask questions, and register your interest with us.

We provide a well-established, structured training programme, a mentor, regular reviews, lots of support and training in several bus garages to maximise what you can learn, with people who care and want our apprentices to succeed. During your training, you will have the opportunity to achieve an NVQ Level 3, an IRTEC SMT, Technical Certificate Level 3 and a PCV (bus driving) licence.
