You asked, we delivered – Apprenticeship Vacancies to work for some of Europe’s leading engineering companies right here in Gainsborough are now open for applicants.

Local employers looking for applicants include:
- A.M.P Rose

Cllr Jeff Summers, leader of West Lindsey District Council was excited to hear that the positions are now open to applicants. He said: “Initiatives such as Made in Gainsborough not only support local people, but they also support local employers. In a time where Apprenticeships are becoming ever popular, it’s great to see that West Lindsey is leading the way.”
108,000 people started an engineering Apprenticeship in 2017 – the UK’s highest record, and you could be joining them from September 2018.
Together the partnership is working with Gainsborough College, which is creating a new centre of engineering excellence in the town. Students could be employed by top Gainsborough firms while they develop the skills they need to build lasting careers.
Michele Guest, Director of Education and Training at Gainsborough College is delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for young people to study locally whilst undertaking an Apprenticeship, she said: “For Apprentices, travelling to and from college and the workplace is one of the toughest challenges, as it can take several bus journeys to reach their place of work and place of study.
“We are so pleased to be able to offer students a new choice of where they would like to study their Apprenticeship – we are striving to create a new centre of engineering excellence right here in Gainsborough and I am delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for young people to study locally.”
West Lindsey District Council has worked with the engineering companies and Gainsborough College to develop a brochure to celebrate engineering in Gainsborough and to capture the opportunities available.
