Chubb expands award winning apprenticeship scheme to include fire and security engineers
Published on 27 April 2010
Chubb is expanding its award-winning engineering apprenticeship scheme to include apprenticeships for fire systems engineers, as well as security engineers, for the first time in the company's history. Chubb is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.
A total of 30 apprenticeships are being made available across Chubb's fire, security, and integrated technologies businesses according to David Millett, Head of Chubbs Learning & Development team who will be administering the scheme.
"Apprenticeship schemes have long been recognised as providing our business with skilled and capable engineers who are motivated and engaged to progress their careers within Chubb," he said. "This is an exciting time to join the Chubb business as we move towards an integrated and customer focused provider of fire and security solutions in the UK and Ireland."
The apprenticeships are held at two levels (Level 2 and Level 3 Advanced) matched to the appropriate nationally recognised Technical Certificates and NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications). Chubb monitors its apprentices progress throughout the programme, David explains, with ongoing assessments: "Most of our apprentices complete the full programme within 38 to 42 month, and our team at the National Apprenticeship Training Centre in Blackburn take a keen interest in their development."
The vacancies will be posted by role and location on Chubb's own recruitment website. A micro-site has been designed with information on the scheme, entry criteria, person brief (including a case study) and the online application process.
