The Northampton-based contract hire and fleet management company runs workshops on behalf of local authorities, and has a network of engineers and technicians to support its customers’ fleets.
The apprentices will be working towards a NVQ Level 3 in Heavy Vehicle Mechanics and become a workplace technician, trained in all aspects of vehicle maintenance and repairs on HGV and light commercial vehicles.
Mark Kellett, head of engineering at SFS and a former apprentice mechanic, says: “There is a huge shortage of skilled technicians in this field, so these roles are like gold dust at the moment. This is a promising career to go into as the industry will always need these technicians.
“Apprenticeships offer great opportunities for young people. I myself was one in 1990 as an apprentice mechanic and it set me up for a long and successful career.”
SFS is part of the asset finance division of Paragon Bank. For details on the apprenticeships, click the link below.
