START A CAREER TO BE PROUD OF
Supportive and open, you’ll find MAN and our Service teams will welcome you and support your growth and development.
Our range is at the forefront in terms of technology and quality, and we continue to advance innovation every day. Meaning that you will be working on and learning about industry leading technology, systems and components.
It’s an exciting environment where people are happy in their work and have a wealth of knowledge and skills to share.
About the Apprenticeship
Joining the team in the Service Department, you’ll learn on the job and through classroom-based learning, become an HGV Technician over the course of three years.
During your apprenticeship, you’ll be instructed by the Technicians in your team who will also help and support you to learn. You’ll also get invaluable insight into a variety of roles and functions across our wider UK and international business – there’s a lot going on here and so much to learn!
Life as an Apprentice
Over three years, you’ll be supported and guided to become a qualified HGV Technician.
There’s a lot to take in and so you’ll find every day is different. The apprenticeship, while structured, can be flexibly tailored to take into account your strengths and what you need to learn. So while the pace can be fast, you’ll never be out of your depth.
You’ll learn by working on live projects and tasks in a real work environment, you’ll be given responsibility and you’ll be encouraged to identify new challenges and opportunities for learning.
Throughout, your colleagues and manager will help and support you to achieve your goals and find new ones.
About the Team
Helpful. Knowledgeable. Professional. Happy. Our Technical teams are passionate about the job they do and skills they bring to work every day. Everyone here is proud to work for MAN and they want you to be too. You’ll find your team is enthusiastic about answering your questions, giving advice and guidance and helping you to find your way.
Our Technician teams are also very sociable and you’ll find they like to get together outside of work too.
Life as an Apprentice
Life as an apprentice here is hands on – it’s the best way to learn. Add the fact that people here are experts in their areas and new products are developed frequently, and there’ll be a lot to take in. Especially in your first few months.
Tasks could include carrying out steam cleans, working in production or carrying out housekeeping (admin, etc). Whatever the task at hand, this on-the-job training will be supported by structured learning to help you progress.
Our Approach to Learning
You’ll spend most of your time learning from and with your team and manager. This is enhanced by classroom-based learning at college.
These studies are undertaken at a college, which typically can be for a week at a time every few months. Over the year, you’ll attend four blocks, studying the topics for each assignment and providing examples of tasks completed in the workplace. All contribute towards your qualification.
As your skills and knowledge grow, you’ll be given more challenging tasks and responsibility.
Completing the apprenticeship successfully and demonstrating further potential means you could be offered a full-time job with competitive salary.
You could also choose to achieve another qualification with MAN’s support while you work full-time.
The recruitment process
Your application will be reviewed and you could be invited to a workshop that will assess your suitability using a number of tasks. This might be summarising the main points of a promotional leaflet, or making a presentation on your strengths and potential for a role with MAN.
