Apprenticeships

Rotamec have long realised that the best way to get the strongest talent into the industry is grow their own and with school leavers looking at other avenues than University to get into full time employment the apprenticeship programme has become an excellent way to achieve this.

Rotamec has taken it upon themselves to forge close working relationship with the local schools and give them the opportunity to work with a forward thinking company.

Students can initially join Rotamec for work experience then if they become an apprentice, they receive a rounded training programme including day release at the local technical college allowing them to obtain a recognised qualification as well as leaning and earning on the job.

There are generally at least three students working their way through an apprenticeship at Rotamec and achieving a thorough grounding in all aspects of the trade.

Each apprentice is appointed a highly experienced mentor with on average 20 years experience and knowledge behind them in the industry, therefore ensuring that their skills and experience are passed on and the apprentice gets the best they possibly can out of the opportunity he or she has been given.
