About the employer: 

MRS Training & Rescue are looking to recruit a Business Administration Apprentice.

For over 100 years, MRS Training & Rescue (formerly known as Mines Rescue Service), has developed specialist skills, experience and knowledge gained from working in difficult and potentially dangerous environments, to effect the rescue and escape of mine workers from underground.

However, given the gradual decline of the coal mines over many years, culminating in the closure of the last deep coal mine in December 2015, we have been able to expand and diversify to meet the needs of today’s health and safety market.  

We offer a comprehensive range of health and safety training to a wide range of industries. We have developed our specialist skills, experience and knowledge from working in difficult and potentially high risk environments, and our team of qualified trainers not only provide expert training, but can impart real life scenarios of situations they have faced, to bring the learning to life.

We have been able to secure long term success by leveraging our expertise, and have branched out from underground mining into providing unique rescue services, specialist equipment (some of which has been designed using practical expertise gathered on the job), consultancy and a comprehensive range of accredited health and safety related products, training and services to a wide range of industries, including nuclear, aerospace, manufacturing and utilities.
