Apprentice intake up at Kirby
Kirby Group Engineering has taken in 80 apprentices for its 4-year programme in 2020, despite the challenges for the economy posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Kirby Apprenticeship Programme provides recruits with structured technical training, graduated practical work challenges, coaching and mentoring, and structured personal development and support. Many Kirby apprentices have competed successfully at international level.
Applications are now open for the 2021 Kirby Apprentice Programme, and demand is being monitored by the company, with a view to possibly expanding intake once again. The company is looking for bright, action-oriented, analytical candidates who are interested in how and why things work and who are practically-minded.
