Job Description

We’re after people who don’t panic when things don't go to plan, but take to it with heads-down seriousness and a get-things-done approach. People who can think on their feet and solve problems methodically and logically. You’ll love the idea of being around JCBs and the machines that make them.


What will the apprentice be doing?

This is where mechanical and electrical engineering meet and it’s as exciting as it gets. Robotics, electronics, product engineering and more. Fixing the machines that make our machines. Without you, things won’t just grind to a halt they’ll stay that way. Every time a problem arises, you’re right there, on the job. Yes, it will be highly pressurised at times, but the career you’ll develop will be amazing and really important in our business’s future.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

For the first 22 months of the apprenticeship, you will mainly train at our dedicated training partner's development centre (Toyota, Derby) with some placement weeks based at JCB. The final 22 months you will be mainly based in JCB gaining on the job experience.

You will work towards recognised Level 3 Engineering qualifications. When you've successfully completed the programme, you'll be ready to start your first real Maintenance Engineering job role within JCB.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

As a Mechatronics Apprentice working at one of JCB’s UK Business Units you will develop the knowledge and hands on skills to develop, maintain and repair equipment at JCB.
