The DAF Trucks National Dealer Apprentice Programme gives you the chance to join the select group of specialist technicians working on some of the most modern, sophisticated trucks on the road.

The DAF Technicians jobs fall into three categories:

  • Repair – diagnosing the reason for vehicle failure and fixing the problem
