Liebherr Container Cranes is inviting applications to their apprenticeship and engineering scholarship programmes 2022.

Both programmes are aligned with the academic calendar, reflecting the importance of a blended approach to training and education, with a mixture of practical and classroom based learning. The programmes offer school leavers a number of routes into training, education and full-time employment with Liebherr Container Cranes.

Apprentice programmes lead to craft and academic qualifications and opportunity to continue education to degree level while scholarship programme recipients benefit from paid tuition, work placement, summer work and one-to-one tuition.

Apprentice programme with an academic qualification

Run in partnership with Munster Technological University (MTU), Liebherr's four year enhanced apprentice programme sees apprentices choose from one of the following disciplines; Electrical, Mechanical Automation and Maintenance Fitter or Metal Fabricator. In addition to their craft qualifications, apprentices complete a Level 6 higher certificate in engineering, resulting in a dual qualification and the opportunity to continue to an honours degree in engineering (Level 8). Apprentices benefit from practical training in Liebherr and get to work on the production of their cranes. In third and fourth year, they get the opportunity to work at Liebherr job sites worldwide as well as participate in an apprentice exchange programme with sister companies in Austria and Germany.

Engineering scholarships with an eye on employment

The Liebherr Engineering Scholarship Programme is designed for Leaving Cert and college students who have applied for, or are studying engineering, automation or mechatronics to degree level. Successful applicants will have their college fees paid for the duration of their course, and will benefit from work placements, summer work, one-to-one tuition in Liebherr and the opportunity to progress into full-time employment upon successful graduation. Many previous scholars have gone on to work full-time with Liebherr in many different departments.

How to apply

Applications for both programmes close on May 27. Apprentice applicants should send an up to date CV, a copy of academic results and a cover letter specifying the role that they are interested in and why to apprenticerecruit.lcc@liebherr.com.

Scholarship applicants should apply by email to scholarshiprecruit.lcc@liebherr.com. Applicants should include a CV detailing Leaving Certificate/Junior Certificate/college projects and/or results and a cover letter explaining why they have chosen engineering as a career. In the case of Leaving Certificate applicants, a copy of their completed CAO form showing their choice of engineering course should be included.

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

To book an appointment or to find out more information, call 064 6632966.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
