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.

He came dashing through the town on Saturday night and packed streets greeted him with huge excitement.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
