Dales Marine Services Apprenticeship applications window is now open!

May 2023

Dales Marine Services are delighted to launch its 2023 apprenticeship recruitment campaign, with training opportunities across its Aberdeen, Leith, and Greenock dry dock facilities. Applications are now open and close at the end of June; interviews will be held in July, and new apprentices will commence with Dales Marine during August.

Dales Marine, a well-established ship repair and marine specialist, continues its commitment to developing young workers and works closely with local schools and colleges to inspire pupils to consider entering the maritime/ship repair industry as a future career. Currently, Dales Marines has thirty-four apprentices across their dry dock sites. This year we have twelve apprenticeship places available at our dry dock facilities.

We are looking for ambitious apprentices to help us deliver the highest standards to our clients. We provide customised training and support, with great benefits and excellent career opportunities within the business upon completion of an apprenticeship.

Dales Marine is committed to developing its future talent, and apprentices play a crucial part. This year Dales Marine is looking to recruit 12 apprentices for welders, fabricators, and mechanical engineers, at three of its main facilities in Aberdeen, Leith, and Greenock.

Mark Massie, Dales Marine Services HR Manager, said: "Our Apprenticeship scheme offers young people a thorough programme, with the promise of a full-time position at the end of the apprenticeship training and which is always popular. Our apprentices work alongside qualified tradespersons, allowing them to work on various projects throughout their apprenticeship."

Mark Massie continues: "This is a chance for young people to start their career with a major Scottish company within the marine industry. We are very proud of our apprentice scheme, which has been running since 1990, and we have team leaders, senior managers, and directors with us who all started their careers as apprentices at Dales Marine. We know from experience that most apprentices stay with the company upon completing their four-year apprenticeship with us."

We provide valuable, hands-on experience for each of the specialities; the apprenticeship programme lasts four years and covers a wide range of areas to help equip people with the skills they need for a successful career in the marine ship repair industry.
