On Friday 3 September, we were delighted to welcome 13 new apprentices to our Belfast site!

The apprenticeship scheme will run in line and with partnership from Northern Regional College and will see apprentices range from 17 – 28 years old, with a mixture of genders.

Steven Wright, General Manager at Harland & Wolff (Belfast), who started his career as a Harland & Wolff Apprentice commented: “We are extremely excited to be welcoming our first intake of apprentices to Belfast and to the Harland & Wolff Group. This is a great opportunity to pass on the vast skills, knowledge, and expertise of our current employees to the next generation of marine engineers and shipbuilders. As work ramps up throughout the yard and with significant investment towards on-site innovation, it is an incredibly exciting time to join the business. Famously known as the birthplace of British shipbuilding and maritime excellence, our apprentices will not only gain valuable first-hand industry experience but will be able to continue our proud legacy – all whilst doing so with the backdrop of Samson and Goliath, our iconic gantry cranes.”
