Metal Fabricator Apprentice

£6.40 per hour

Since 1998, apprenticeships have been the building blocks of the Intelect workforce, and have continued to be for the past 25 years as we have grown and progressed as a business. When it comes to apprenticeships, Intelect’s ethos has always been ‘train to retain’, and as such, we are now renowned for our award-winning program, gaining both local and national recognition and ranking 27th in the government’s Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers.

Our Level 3 Metal Fabricator apprenticeship is a three-year course, which includes training at Middlesbrough College for the first two years. It is an ideal hybrid role for someone who is looking to experience some variety, with the job including fabrication, welding, lifting and slinging.
