Apprentice mechanics appointed by Highland Council

2nd November 2016

The Highland Council's Community Services have recently completed a recruitment drive for apprentice mechanics. Over 250 applications were received and nine new apprentices have just started their 4 year training programme.

The apprentices will be based in Wick, Brora, Inverness, Skye, Aviemore and Fort William.

Chair of the Highland Council's Community Services Committee, Councillor Allan Henderson congratulated the successful candidates and wished them well in their new roles. He said: "The apprentices will help with our succession planning so we can continue to deliver workshop services to our fleet of vehicles right across Highland. It is also helps sustain our local communities, as young people can stay in their communities and have a future there."

Head of Performance and Resources for the service, Caroline Campbell added: “We were very impressed with the high level and quality of applications we received following an advertising campaign on social media so I’d like to thank everyone who applied. I’d also like to congratulate the successful candidates as they all did very well in their interviews. Our apprentice scheme will give them a formal qualification and skills for life.”

The new apprentices are:

Wick - Elliot Geddes

Brora - Alick Elrick

Inverness- John Hutchison and Scott Matheson

Dingwall - Michael Black

Skye - Calum MacLeod

Aviemore – Gregor Rose
