Apprentice Vacancies - Lauren's Blog

award winners

Don’t miss out there is only one week left to apply for one of our apprenticeship vacancies. Whilst you consider your options – we checked in with our female apprentice, Lauren.

Things have been going well for current Modern Apprentice, Lauren at the Motherwell site. So far, she has won an award for ‘best electrical apprentice’ and ‘best hand-fitting’ apprentice – Lauren’s proudest moment yet according to her.

“It was quite a surprise to win best hand fitting apprentice because this was new to me, but with the guidance and opportunities made available to me via our training partner EKGTA , it just shows you what new skills you can achieve’.

While in the workplace, Lauren has been able to put into practice areas of her HND studies project with recently just completing a battery conversion for our R70D hauler. As we are a Volvo group company that manufactures both Terex Trucks Articulated Haulers and Volvo Rigid Haulers, Lauren can work on projects for Terex Trucks and Volvo Consturction Equipment Haulers Ltd.

“I found it to be a new learning curve on following new procedures where I could complete everything myself from start to finish and then see what I actually achieved’.

Currently, Lauren is working on a unique apprentice team project focusing on the refurbishment of specific areas at our Motherwell site.

She states, “As part of my apprentice development and being part of a wider apprentice team, I’m involved in an apprentice project with a real budget where we are going to improve our training facility area for not only future apprentices but everyone in our Motherwell site for years to come. It’s been a real learning experience”
