We are excited to announce our apprenticeship scheme is now open for applications.

Running across all five Harland & Wolff operations (Appledore, Arnish, Belfast, Methil and its London headquarters), we will be looking to recruit a significant number of apprentices as work ramps up. The next intake of apprentices will arrive on-site in August/September 2022.

Applications will close at 5pm on 6th May 2022.

To apply, prospective employees must complete the application form which can be found here. At this time, CVs will not be considered.

We would  also like to hear from recently qualified apprentices as well as those who are part way through their course or have been unable to complete their apprenticeship through COVID-19/recent loss of employment.

For successful candidates, the next stage will include an on-site assessment day and interview which will take place between May 23rd and June 3rd. We ask for candidates to keep dates between this time available. 

We are looking for team players who are motivated with good communication and practical skills. Prospective apprentices must also have five GCSEs/Standard Grades/Nationals or equivalent including Maths, English, Technical, Craft.

Kelly O’Rourke, Group Director of Human Resources commented: “We are delighted to be launching the second year of our successful Harland & Wolff apprenticeship scheme, providing quality opportunities for up to 150 new members of our team. This year we are opening the scheme up to our four yards in Belfast, Methil, Arnish and Appledore along with our corporate headquarters in London. The continued revitalisation and growth of Harland & Wolff means we are now in a position to offer a unique breadth of roles, across a full range of trades and through to roles in corporate support and communications.”
