Whale Tankers in Solihull on the hunt for five new apprentices

Solihull Editorial 18th Aug, 2021   0

SOLIHULL’S Whale Tankers is redoubling its focus on its modern apprenticeship programme.

The pandemic put paid to last year’s scheme but now Whale Tankers – a leading manufacturer of liquid waste vacuum tankers and jetting equipment – is looking to appoint five apprentices in time for the new academic year starting in September.

Open to candidates interested in training for a career in a modern production environment as a multi-skilled fitter/welder, the successful applicants will gain invaluable onsite and college-based expert training over a three-year period at Level 3.

Within the full time training programme apprentices will become proficient in welding and fabrication in carbon and stainless steel used to build bespoke tankers, whilst working alongside and training with highly experienced members of staff.

The position will also deliver a clear insight into understanding the process of building products from start to finish as well as providing an opportunity to gain experience in pneumatics, hydraulics and electrical systems.

Whale Tankers is well placed to build on its manufacturing heritage that today spans more than 50 years.

Its Ravenshaw base, by junction 5 off the M42, is currently in the process of undergoing a major expansion and investment programme.

Full details of the apprenticeships can be found at www.whale.co.uk/jobs.
