Nexus – who amongst their other responsibilities owns and manages the Tyne and Wear Metro – is looking for ten new apprentices in various different areas of their business. With roles in the infrastructure section of the Metro and the Bus Services team there are plenty of apprenticeships on offer.
Of the ten roles, seven are being sought to work in Metro Infrastructure, including signalling, track engineering, overhead line and electrical and mechanical operational roles. There are also two business administration apprenticeship opportunities in the Bus Services and Contract and Commercial Departments. The final apprenticeship is the first Level 6 apprentice role in the Renewals Project team.
Ally Jennings, Nexus HR Manager, said: “2020 was challenging for all businesses, but we are delighted to start 2021 by investing in ten apprenticeship positions. We are looking forward to welcoming a diverse mix of talented people who are keen to start careers in the transport industry. The apprentices will join Nexus at a time where there are many exciting projects underway, including the investment of a new fleet. Investing in apprenticeships is important to us as it ensures we have people with the right skills within the business, building their careers and securing the future of our workforce.”
Over 90% of Nexus apprentices move into a higher apprenticeship or full employment upon completion making theses roles much sought after.
Applications are now open and will close on 12th March. More details can be found at https://www.nexus.org.uk/apprenticeships
