Sunseeker apprenticeship programme to expand again

Motorboat & Yachting: Sunseeker har announced that it will be taking 40 new Sunseeker apprentices in Poole this year.

 

Sunseeker apprentice programme is being expanded, the company set to hire 40 additional trainees, up from 28 last year.

This was announced as part of the National Apprenticeship Week, that the new intake will include 26 new hires at Sunseeker HQ in Poole and a further 14 at its Portland facility.

“Developing new talent within the workforce is essential to maintaining our reputation and position as a world leader in luxury performance motor yacht design and manufacture”, said Alex Bowman, training manager at Sunseeker International.

The Sunseeker three and four-year courses are available on a long-established apprenticeship scheme, which has been running since 1979.

Sunseeker apprentices will be able to choose from four different specialisms: marine engineers (4-year), composite boat builders (3-year), marine electricians (4-year) and carpentry boat builders (4-year).

All apprentices will contribute to the entire production lines of the Sunseeker range, from the entry-level San Remo 48 to the flagship 155 Yacht.

Sunseeker is currently training 60 apprentices in conjunction with Bournemouth & Poole College, and this new intake will take the total up to 100 – the highest number of Sunseeker apprentices to date.

“Our record intake of apprentices demonstrates our investment in the future of the marine industry, enabling young people in the local community to kick-start their career in this sector,” said Alex Bowman.
