Ainscough Crane Hire has revealed details of its new mobile crane operator apprenticeship programme – the first of its kind for the company.

The three-year programme will offer participants a gateway into the crane industry while they are supported by Ainscough in gaining the required skills and qualifications.

Ainscough is currently recruiting for the apprenticeships, with twenty vacancies available across the company’s national network of operating centres.

In the first year of the apprenticeship, those involved will gain their Slinger/Signaller qualification before going on to achieve their HGV Class 2 licence and Mobile Crane Operator qualification over the three year period.

Interested candidates must live within travelling distance of one of Ainscough’s participating operating centres* and have a full clean driving licence.

Darren Thompson, Ainscough Crane Hire’s head of HR, said: “This new apprenticeship programme is a first for us, and represents an investment in the future of our company. This programme will help support our growth strategy and enable us to develop a sustainable workforce for the years ahead.

“This is a really exciting time to begin working in our industry, with many large scale construction and infrastructure projects on the horizon, and these apprenticeships are excellent opportunities to develop a rewarding role at the UK’s largest crane operator.”

Those who complete the apprenticeships will receive first-class training, with health and safety always paramount, and receive a competitive rate of apprentice pay with attractive benefits and holiday packages.

Participating locations are Falkirk, Glasgow, Immingham, Invergordon, Lancaster, Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Preston, Sheffield and Stockton. Further locations in the South of England will be released shortly.
