Job Description

Safety Devices is a name synonymous with Roll Over Protection. As Europe’s largest roll cage manufacturer, we have been designing and manufacturing since the “dawn” of the roll cage - an unparalleled forty years of proven engineering experience. There is an opportunity for a welding apprentice to join the team.


Main responsibilities include:

  • Welding
  • Machining on mill and lathe
  • Cutting and bending tube
  • Assembly of steel tube and plate to motor vehicles
  • Tidying and cleaning parts of the workshop and outside areas

Future Prospects

This is a key position in a new and expanding workshop, this will be a full-time long-term position. When fully trained, they will be working as part of the development team alongside our CAD department. Most members of our team have been with us for many years.

Reality Check

This is a practical job that will require lifting, climbing in, out and under vehicles. A high level of care for valuable assets. Some of the equipment to be used can be potentially hazardous so special care will be required. £4.50 per hour as a minimum starting rate, although negotiable upon experience. For apprentices 19 or over who have completed their first year and are continuing their apprenticeship, the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies.
