We know that the CITB estimates that as an industry we need to recruit 31,600 workers annually and it is important for us to be a part of that drive. The Flannery apprentice scheme ensures we have a strong pipeline of talent to support future projects.

In 2016 Flannery Plant Hire helped to form the ‘trailblazer group’, an employer-led working group tasked with developing a fit-for-purpose apprenticeship standard for the construction plant industry. Consisting of employers representing construction equipment owners and hirers from a variety of sectors, as well as clients (including HS2 and Highways England) and training providers, Flannery have been instrumental in its development.

Whatever your skill set, the industry has a variety of different paths. As a business we are passionate about recruiting new apprentices. Our structured programme is delivered through a blended approach of ‘on’ and ‘off’ the job training and candidates earn while they learn. We have adopted a supportive culture for our apprentices, with access to company mentors, FIR ambassadors, mental health first aiders and well-being support.
