Local bus company in search of the next generation of bus mechanics

In recognition of the Scottish Apprenticeship Week (07 – 11 March), a local bus company is on the search for talented individuals to join its apprentice scheme.

West Coast Motors operate bus and coach services in Campbeltown, Adrishaig, Oban, Mull, Dunoon, Bute and Glasgow.

The aim of the scheme is to develop young talent and inspire the next generation of bus mechanics in the West Coast, with positions available in Glasgow, Ardrishaig, Dunoon and the Isle of Bute.

The apprentice scheme offers the ideal mix of on-the-job training within the depots’ mechanical workshop coupled with formal apprenticeship training conducted at Glasgow Training Group (GTG) where the apprentice will complete course modules.

To qualify for SQA funding candidates should be aged between 16-19, have three National 4’s or above and have good communication and interpersonal skills.

Nicola Wright HR manager said “The scheme provides an ideal springboard for school leavers looking to kickstart their career in the engineering industry. At a time when the lives of young people across Scotland have been greatly affected by the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, these work-based learning experiences will create much-needed routes into the engineering and transport sector.”

All interested candidates should apply online at www.westcoastmotorscareers.co.uk or can email their current CV and covering letter to recruitment@westcoastmotors.co.uk before the closing date of 28 March 2022.
