September start for new Liebherr apprentices

Published

on

One of the world’s leading manufacturers of ship to shore container cranes is calling for applications for its Apprenticeship Programme for 2021/2022.

The Liebherr Container Cranes apprenticeship programme, which will now run in line with academic calendar, has Mechanical Automation and Maintenance Fitter, Metal Fabrication, and Electrical apprenticeships available. The closing date for applications is Friday, June 25.

"Beginning this year, enrolment for apprentices will follow the academic calendar with commencement of apprenticeships in September as opposed to January," Trevor O'Donoghue from Liebherr Container Cranes said.

"At Liebherr, apprenticeships have always had a theoretical and a practical element. In recent years, as products and manufacturing technologies have become more advanced, the theoretical element of the apprenticeships has become even more important. Liebherr have worked closely with Solas and Munster Technological University (MTU) and are delighted to be able to offer apprentices a dual qualification."

Apprentices will receive a Level 6 Craft Certificate in their trade and a Level 6 Higher Certificate in Engineering in their respective fields from MTU.

"Liebherr apprenticeships are an excellent opportunity for candidates to get an internationally recognised qualification along with an academic qualification, which provides a basis for further studies. Once qualified, the Higher Level 6 certificate award will allow graduates to continue to diploma or degree level in their chosen field."

Liebherr has long been recognised as a pioneer in the provision of apprenticeships. The very first apprentices enrolled in 1959 and the apprentice programme has been in operation ever since providing a steady stream of highly qualified and skilled graduates. Apprentices spend four years developing their skills and knowledge, all the while pursuing academic training. During their training, they undertake many different roles and are highly experienced when they graduate. This opens up many opportunities and career pathways within Liebherr.

To apply for these roles, applicants, who must be at least 16 years of age on September 1, 2021, 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. Any further documents such as training certificates, references, project details and awards etc., should also be included.

Successful candidates will benefit from a competitive package, fully paid training and education, excellent future employment and progression prospects, along with the opportunity to travel the world.

With over 22 billion global streams Hozier, whose other shows are completly sold out, has announced a new date in Killarney this summer.

Not only will the Grammy-nominated, award-winning multi-platinum singer and songwriter, perform in Malahide Castle and The Academy, but he has announced a gig at the Gleneagle INEC Arena on June 27.

Driven by the thought-provoking quintuple-platinum anthem, ‘Take Me To Church’, ranked the 30th most listened to song on Spotify, the track is the 103rd song to ever achieve the rare milestone of Diamond certification and the highest certified solo Alternative single in RIAA history.

‘Take Me To Church’ has surpassed 2 billion streams, the only Irish artist to achieve this feat.

Hozier’s success hasn’t been confined to the UK and US with the album also achieving Multi-Platinum status in Belgium, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, Ireland, Russia, Sweden, Poland, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands.

Major TV appearances have helped spread the gospel including stand-out appearances on Later with Jools, Jimmy Fallon , David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel, and Graham Norton. Following a year of sold out shows and festival appearances across the US, Canada, Europe and Australia, VH1 crowned Hozier ‘Artist of the Year’ and he received the honours ‘Top Rock Artist’ and ‘Top Rock Songs’ at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

In addition, he scored nominations for ‘Song of the Year’ at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards at which he performed alongside Annie Lennox and ‘Favourite Artist – Alternative Rock’ at the American Music Awards.

He won BBC ‘Song of the Year’ and the coveted Ivor Novello award for ‘Song of The Year’.

As Hozier prepares to release his third album ‘Unreal Unearth’ in 2023, his 3-track EP ‘Eat Your Young’ was released on March 17 in honour of his birthday and St. Patrick’s Day.

Tickets for Hozier go on sale this Thursday at 9am.

The first born Kerry Calf of 2023 was born at Muckross National Park this week.

Both mother and calf are doing very well. The rare and native bred is distinguished by its black colour, grazing outdoors in all seasons and is extremely hardy. The newborn calf can expect a long and peaceful life grazing in the National Park – the half moon close to Torc Waterfall is a popular grazing field.

Kerry cattle are a rare breed of dairy cattle – native to Kerry, descended from the Celtic Shorthorn, brought to Ireland as early as 2000BC. They are considered one of the oldest breeds in Europe, known for their milk quality and gentle nature.

Killarney National Park recognises the importance of conserving the historic Muckross herd. Former owners of Muckross Estate, Arthur Rose Vincent, were passionate about the Kerry Calf. Today, the rare bred are cared and managed by Chief Herdsman, Mike Fleming, particularity for preservation and agricultural heritage.

Another prolific breed is the ‘Cahernane Kerry’ owned and bred by dairy farmer, Ms Hilliard of Cahernane, Killarney. Ms Hilliard is one of the strongest advocators in the preservation and conservation of the bred. She is life-long secretary of the Kerry Cattle Society.
