Trainee Opportunity: Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Engineer

Do you have 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 as a full-time trainee Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineer.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain practical skills, and for the right candidate there’s the potential to work towards your professional qualifications. You’ll also receive the full support of an experienced line manager and mentor, as they help you reach your full potential. 

Applications are welcome from anyone with a vested interest in engineering, and the commitment to making the most of this valuable opportunity. 

What You’ll Do

You’ll initially join us for a 6 month probationary period. During this time, you’ll complete an 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. 

On successful completion of your probation, you’ll be enrolled on the Advanced Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Engineering Technician Level 2 training course, with the potential to advance to level 3. 

Here you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to be fully competent in the design, installation, routine maintenance, reactive service, commissioning and decommissioning of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems. 

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 successful completion of your training. 

The role is expected to start in July 2023 and we offer a salary from £300 per week. To apply, please email your CV along with a cover letter to
