At Cammell Laird we understand the importance of nurturing careers and developing the future of our workforce, as well as developing the vital skills our industry needs to secure the future of British shipbuilding.

The vast majority of our apprentices have gone straight into full-time permanent employment upon completion of their initial training and many have been able to gain further qualifications and progress their careers with Cammell Laird, including up to Director level.

Our 2024 recruitment process opens in May, and we have opportunities across a range of disciplines including Welders, Platers, Riggers, Mech Fitters, Pipefitters, Machinist and Shipwrights.

Our Programme.

We have worked hard to establish an award winning apprenticeship programme in partnership with local colleges including The Engineering College and Wirral Met - making us one of the biggest employers in the area.

In recent years, Cammell Laird has put hundreds of apprentices through its multi-award-winning apprenticeship programme - making it one of the biggest in the UK maritime industry.

Around 70 apprentices were given the opportunity to contribute to the RRS Sir David Attenborough project and develop vital experience.
