Do you enjoy fixings things? If so this could be the apprenticeship for you. Working on a range of mechanical, electronic and electrical products/equipment you will be involved with fault diagnoses, repair and planned preventive maintenance schedules. Many roles are dual skilled, meaning that you are qualified in two skill disciplines i.e. mechanical & electrical. Once qualified you could operate as either an internal maintenance engineer or become a service engineer working on external sites.
Do you have an eye for detail? Then why not utilise that skill to produce components using both conventional and computer controlled machine tools. You could be producing items for internal use and assembly or for external suppliers on a sub contract basis. Everything from small turned parts produced on a conventional lathe to larger more complex parts produced on a 5 axis machining centre.
Do you have a steady hand and a creative side? You could utilise these skills to fabricate and weld parts. This is a highly skilled role; working with range materials (steel, stainless steel and aluminium alloys) you will create fabricated parts for a wide range engineering applications. Everything from simple structures to parts for hi tech scientific products and equipment.
Could you take a product from the design stage and make it production ready? Working within a team you will work with designers and external suppliers to develop production methods and processes, ensuring your product can be produced to the agreed specification. Including; quantities, cost and quality. No two jobs will be the same and will involve the use of a wide range of manufacturing technologies.
Working on new builds and refurbishments you will be part of a team designing and developing mechanical and or electrical building services. These services control everything from lighting to energy efficient technologies for delivering and managing heat/power. Site visits to ensure successful installation and operation are part of the role.
If aircraft is your thing then an Airframe Technician role could be for you. This is a mechanically biased role maintaining and repairing airframes (fuselage) and engines of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. It is possible, with some employers, to progress onto CAA type approval qualifications.
If aircraft is your thing then an Avionics Technician role could be for you. This is an electrical/electronic biased role maintaining and repairing the electronic control systems of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. It is possible, with some employers, to progress onto CAA type approval qualifications.
Do you have a logical approach when setting up your gaming console? You could use these skills, with training, to set up a plastic injection moulding machine? Increasingly moulding technology is becoming an integral part of modern manufacturing by producing low cost high volume quality parts. The role encompasses machine and process set up to obtain optimum results.
Do you have good practical skills combined with an eye for detail? If you do a toolmkaing role could be for you. Toolmakers produce, utilising a combination of hand and machine skills, highly accurate and detailed tooling for metal and plastic injection presses and moulding machines. These tools produce everything from car body panels to small precise components used in medical equipment.
Do you like problem solving? Is science one of your best subjects? If so you could be part of a team tasked with developing new products or processes. R&D technicians work alongside scientists and engineers developing ideas for the next generation of products. If working with new and emerging technologies is of interest this would be an ideal role.
Could you interpret concepts and ideas into CAD drawings/programmes? Design Technicians work both in teams and individually to design components and assemblies from everything from cars to domestic appliances. If you enjoy working with IT, have a creative mind and enjoy design this could be the role for you.
Could you design or develop a manufacturing process which creates products from raw materials and components into a fully built and tested item ready to ship to the customer? Do you have a logical approach to problem solving? Working as part of a team you will work with designers and external suppliers to develop processes which ensure product s can be produced accurately and consistently to specification.
