Leyland Trucks revs up with 28 apprenticeship opportunities

Leyland Trucks – a leading innovative engineering and manufacturing company – is offering a dedicated development programme for 28 new apprentices.

Ahead of National Apprenticeship Week (February 5-11) the company has announced it will have positions available across the business, from engineering and operations to project management and administration roles.

The apprenticeships present opportunities for dynamic and varied careers for a broad range of candidates. Scope for progression is vast, with huge investment in people development and training.

Former apprentices can be found at all levels throughout every department, and global travel is a very real prospect for those with ambitions to work abroad, with Leyland Trucks’ employees stationed as far afield as Australia, Brazil, and the US.

Each apprenticeship will be delivered in partnership with Preston College, Blackpool & The Fylde College, UCLan, Training 2000 or Runshaw College, and lucky applicants will earn a wage, while they are supported wholeheartedly in their learning at Leyland Trucks and college.

Leyland Trucks claimed the title of Apprentice Team of the Year at last year’s BIBAs, thanks to their impact on the business and their dedication to personal development, which its people are supported to prioritise.


Maria Rogers, learning and development manager at Leyland Trucks, said: “Our apprentices are the lifeblood of Leyland Trucks. You’ll find past and present apprentices right across the business, including senior positions – whether in management or driving state of the art technological developments, here and abroad.

“The positions available have been strategically chosen. We’re recruiting people into roles that will ultimately drive our growth and ensure continuity of skills as colleagues who have chosen to dedicate their careers to Leyland Trucks hang up their hats and retire.

“We invest heavily in our apprentices, ensuring our new starters feel excited about their careers, know they are making a difference, and foster ambition for their own growth as well as Leyland Trucks’ – whether that’s in creating a greener planet through electrification or learning to motivate and manage others. We can’t wait to meet the right people and have them embark on a career path that leads to countless possibilities.”

Daniel Hampson (18) an automotive engineer apprentice at Leyland Trucks, said: “Submitting my application to become an apprentice here is one of the best decisions I’ve made. I would tell anyone considering applying that they should just go for it. Everyone I work with – both at work and at college – is friendly and supportive.

“I’ve learnt a huge amount, and I’m proud of the things I can do now. I know I make a difference and I’m continually learning as I go. What’s more – instead of racking up student debt, I’m earning. By the time my friends finish university and start looking for jobs, I’ll have real world experience in a global business, no debt, and my qualification too. I cannot recommend it enough.”
