What you will do in your working day

You do not need any previous experience. This proven apprenticeship has been designed with you in mind. As a key member of the family from day one, you will be trained by inhouse professionals and work alongside existing skilled technicians. Throughout this three-year apprenticeship, you will grow into an experienced technician, becoming an expert on a wide range of Heavy Vehicles and associated products.

You will have an enthusiasm for learning new skills, an interest in repairing and maintaining vehicles and the dedication to grow within a well-established business. We are committed to providing you with the knowledge you require. Have a look at what Joe from Scania GB has to say: Meet Joe - Technician apprentice of the year award winner (2023): Joe started at Scania in 2020, with no previous experience. He is now a fully qualified HGV technician and has just won the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award. “From the start, I was made to feel part of the family, Scania paid for all the apprentices throughout the country to go on a team bonding week, completing fun challenges, building teamwork, and learning leadership skills. When I heard about the ‘apprentice of the year’ award my goal was always to win it. I have learnt so much throughout my 3 years in the workshop, from the course and from all the experienced technicians around me. I have two new goals now… to help our next apprentice win apprentice of the year and to develop my own skills further by entering the ‘IMI’ awards. I would highly recommend an apprenticeship with Scania, to anyone interested in becoming an HGV technician”. If you are interested in becoming an HGV technician, please apply today.
