Apprenticeship Opportunity: Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Engineer

Are you a school leaver with a passion for engineering? Are you looking to kick start a rewarding career? At Loughborough Air Conditioning, we’re offering a talented individual the chance to join our team on a full-time Level 3 Apprenticeship Programme. 

Combining hands on work experience with college training, this exciting opportunity will see you build new skills and apply them in a real world context, whilst earning a wage. You’ll also receive the full support of an experienced line manager and mentor, as they help you reach your full potential. 

This is a fantastic chance to take your first steps in a rewarding career. Applications are welcome from anyone aged between 16 and 19 with a vested interest in engineering, and the commitment to making the most of this valuable opportunity.

What You’ll Do

On successful application, you’ll be enrolled on the Advanced Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Engineering Technician Level 3 Apprenticeship

Over the course of three years, you’ll be trained in the design, installation, routine maintenance, reactive service, commissioning and decommissioning of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems. 

You’ll start out with a three month orientation, covering the services we offer, the sites we work at, and the systems we work with. You’ll then head out in the field, supporting a qualified and experienced technician with planned and reactive maintenance and service works on both air conditioning and refrigeration systems. 

Alongside practical experience, you’ll work towards your technical qualifications, attending college on a day release basis.

What We’re Looking For

Although no engineering experience is required, we ask that candidates show a vested interest in the field, and meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a minimum of five GCSEs including Maths, English, Science and one technical subject at grade 9 - 4 (A - C), or a level 2 equivalent.
  • Demonstrate an enthusiasm to learn and a natural ability for problem solving.
  • Be self-motivated, flexible and reliable.
  • Have good IT and excellent communication skills.
  • Able to work both independently and as part of a supportive team.

Above all, we’re looking for someone with a strong work ethic, and a commitment to launching a career as an engineer of exceptional quality. We’ll do everything we can to support you along the way, and for the right candidate, there’s the opportunity to extend the working relationship with permanent employment on completion of your apprenticeship.

The role is expected to start on July 1st 2021, and we offer a salary from £200 per week. To apply, please email your CV to
