Our Apprenticeship scheme provides the perfect way to earn a wage whilst gaining hands on work experience and a Level 3 Advanced qualification, which is the equivalent of two A Levels. We will provide you with full support and training to become a highly skilled Mechanical Maintenance Technician, as part of our Powergen team.

At Viridor, we’re one of the UK’s leading recycling, renewable energy and waste management company. We put waste into action, transforming it into high quality recyclables, raw materials and energy and are at the forefront of the UK’s green economy.

A minimum of five GCSES (with grades 5 or above), including Maths, English and Science. Because of the travel involved in this role, a full UK driving licence is essential.
