Siemens Mobility announces Goole apprenticeships

The first jobs at Siemens Mobility’s Goole train building factory have been announced as 12 apprenticeships.

Applications are now open for the three-year Level 3 Rail Engineering Technician Apprenticeship positions, which will start in September this year.

Apprentices will spend their first year at college, while in the second year they will spend one day a week there and four on placement at Siemens Mobility Traincare facilities. In their final year they will work full-time at Goole for six months, followed by a six-month placement at the company’s train factory in Vienna.

The Goole facility will build new trains for London Underground. It is expected to create 700 jobs, plus a further 250 during construction and an additional 1,700 in the wider supply chain.

Siemens Mobility Chief Executive William Wilson said: “We are delighted to announce we will be taking on our first apprentices for the pioneering Goole rail manufacturing development in September, and that applications are now open.

“This will provide a fantastic opportunity for 12 aspiring engineers to launch their careers with us and become among the first members of the team at Goole when the facility becomes operational."
