Mechatronics is where mechanical engineering meets electrical engineering. It’s robotics, electronics, product engineering and more. It’s fixing the machines that we need to make our machines. Without you, the machines won’t just grind to a halt, they will stay that way.
You’ll spend the first half of the apprenticeship (22 months) training at our dedicated partner’s development centre at Toyota in Derby, with a few weeks on placement at JCB. Then, for the second 22 months, you’ll be based at JCB getting on-the-job experience in one of the areas in our business, before being assessed in a practical environment to complete the apprenticeship.
The unique structure of this programme will give you the complete picture of Mechatronics and where it fits in our industry. Once you’ve completed it, you’ll have a recognised Level 3 Engineering qualification, relevant experience from two different organisations and be ready to start your first Maintenance Engineering career within JCB.
We’re looking for someone with at least four GCSEs at C/4 or above, including Maths, English and Science. We need people who stay calm when things don’t go to plan and tackle challenges with a get-things-done approach. People who are always raring to go, can think quickly and solve problems methodically and logically. You’ll love being around our machines and the machines that make them and understand the seriousness of a paused production line and the financial implications this could have.
