Nissan Sunderland apprenticeships gear up for UK LEAF Production
In its 26-year history, a total of 1,073 apprentices have gone through Nissan’s Trainee Maintenance Technician Scheme, including the 25 latest positions. The latest recruits will be involved in a new stage of manufacturing at the facility, including the new battery plant and manufacturing of the European-market Nissan LEAF EV.
Nissan Sunderland plant engineering director, Richard Ebrahim, who started his own career as an apprentice, said: ‘Hiring apprentices is a tried and tested way of investing in the future of the company. It supports the development of future managers and directors, giving our staff the practical skills and academic qualifications they will need for a successful career.
‘We are looking for ambitious, intelligent people with a desire to learn and work hard. In return they are guaranteed a challenging and rewarding career at a company that is at the forefront of the UK manufacturing industry.’
