Fairline, the luxury British boatbuilder based in Oundle, Northamptonshire is on a recruitment drive for apprentices in its engineering team, with the potential of a full-time position on completion of the apprenticeship.

New recruits will join the Fairline team and contribute to the manufacture of high quality, luxury motoryachts, with the potential to form a long-lasting career with the Fairline family.

During the apprenticeship, apprentices will be supported by a dedicated Apprentice Master and Fairline’s highly experienced teams to build skills and knowledge in both mechanical and electrical engineering. They will effectively support the team installing a variety of mechanical and electrical systems including gyroscopic stabilisers, sea-fire installations, domestic plumbing systems, 240-volt electrical and cabin lighting wiring circuits.

Paul Grys, Fairline Yachts’ CEO, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time to join Fairline as we launch new products and continue production of our existing popular ranges to meet demand across the world. Apprentices based at our HQ in Oundle will be working on models up to 60 feet and be amongst a fantastic team of highly skilled and dedicated engineers who support production for our outstanding global dealer network.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals with a keen desire to learn and be part of the Fairline family. We’ve had generations of families work at Fairline throughout its rich history and seeing team members thrive throughout their careers with us is very rewarding.”

Apprentices will gain qualifications in Engineering Operative - Level 2, EAL Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Operations and EAL Level 2 in Engineering Operations.

Having the unique opportunity to work within a specialist boat building environment will enable apprentices to gain valuable hands-on experience and kick-start their career.

Potential candidates will take part in an initial interview with a member of the Tresham College Apprenticeship Team as part of the recruitment process and to allow progression to the next stage.

The closing date for applications is 5 June 2022.
