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.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
