Description of Opportunity
Opportunities exist to undertake Apprenticeships in three trades: machinery, electrical maintenance and instrument.
Machinery Apprentices will work in our workshops and out on the site, installing pumps, compressors, turbines and machine components. With the foundations of your training in traditional engineering, you will also use cutting-edge technology to embrace new ways of working.
For Electricals, power is the key to everything at Fawley. Without it, we couldn’t do what we do, and as we use as much electricity as the whole of Southampton, we have our own power plant.
You will develop skills that range from working with low voltage alarm systems right up to 11,000-volt motors
You’ll gain knowledge of substations, plant areas, switch gears and all the ins and outs of alarm and lighting circuits
All in all, you’ll gain fundamental skills for life in an area that’s fundamental to our business
Instrument Apprentices will look after some highly complex pieces of kit. At Fawley, we use the latest, automated instruments to keep the oil at the right temperature, the optimum pressure and the correct flow. They are masterpieces of engineering and the technology behind them is always moving forwards, which means everything keeps getting safer and safer. Every day there’ll be new problems to solve, and you’ll need to grab every opportunity you can to learn what’s what. But the payback will be worth it because you’ll be left with skills that will open the doors any large-scale production facility, anywhere in the world.
