Discover your future
The Malcolm Group is fully supportive of Apprenticeships and is proud of the many colleagues across the business who have successfully followed an Apprenticeship program over the years, whether in one of our workshops, in administration or another area of the business, and who have gone on to develop varied and rewarding careers. Following an Apprenticeship route is a great way to earn as you learn, giving you the opportunity to build a successful career upon a solid foundation.
We offer a broad range of Apprenticeship routes, from traditional Vehicle Technician/Mechanic Apprenticeship training through our vehicle workshops at a number of locations in Scotland and England, to Modern Apprenticeships in a variety of roles such as in Business Administration.

Modern Apprenticeship
A Modern Apprenticeship offers a route into work for new joiners with the Malcolm Group and development for existing colleagues in other areas of our business. We have a number of colleagues contributing in a range of administrative roles in support, traffic, warehouse and other teams who have followed this route and many in our Construction division are working through Modern Apprenticeship frameworks, such as Construction Site Supervision and Management.
A Modern Apprentice will carry out an actual job role whilst receiving appropriate support and coaching from their team and participating in scheduled progress checks with an external assessor. These periodic progress checks make sure the individual is developing a broad yet relevant set of competences which they apply in their day to day function.
A Modern Apprenticeship generally lasts one year and leads to a nationally recognised qualification such as NVQ in Business Administration or Occupational Work Supervision. We are looking to build on the success of our Modern Apprentices in Business Administration and open up similar routes in a broader range of functions across the Group.
Workshop Mechanic Apprenticeship
The Malcolm Group operates a substantial fleet of vehicles and plant across the business. The Logistics fleet runs predominantly articulated vehicles with some 360 units and 1250 trailers, our Construction division runs over 100 tippers, skip lorries and sweepers together with over 140 items of plant including excavators, diggers, bulldozers, lo loaders and surfacing equipment.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our equipment: it says everything about who we are. It is vital that our vehicles and equipment receive top quality servicing and maintenance. At the heart of this programme are teams of technicians, mechanics and fitters led by fleet engineers with knowledge and experience that is second to none.
Workshop apprentices can follow a four year development programme involving scheduled off the job learning at specialist training centres to complement the on the job experience based learning, leading to a nationally recognised qualification, for example NVQ in Heavy Vehicle Mechanics.
Whilst servicing and maintenance increasingly reflects the technical advances in modern vehicle technology, workshop apprenticeship continues to suit individuals with a strong aptitude for “hands on” working and problem solving and who enjoy working in a team.
