We’re very proud of our award winning Apprenticeship programme and this year A-Plant has been recognised as one of the Top 100 apprentice employers in the UK, the only hire company to feature in the list!

We typically invest over £1 million each year in the recruitment and training of our Apprentices. The majority of A-Plant Apprentices follow our Plant Maintenance Apprenticeship programme and we also offer Apprenticeships across many other disciplines such as Drivers, Customer Service, Human Resources and Finance.

Our Apprentices have also won national accolades in the Construction Plant Hire Association’s (CPA) Stars of the Future programme, and we are keen to recruit both male and female Apprentices. To make an application for our Apprenticeship programme, please click here.

I used to be an Estate Agent before I found Leada Acrow but all I ever wanted was to be an engineer. I studied engineering at university but was unable to finish my degree for personal reasons.

Then I was offered a Trainee Engineer's position at the company's Chesterfield drawing office and have not looked back since. Leada Acrow has been really good to me and my direct manager has always been at hand for all my training purposes. I can honestly say that I have learnt more in one year working for Leada Acrow than my entire time spent at university.

I am now getting involved in all the aspects of formwork and falsework that Leada Acrow supplies, and am building a very strong portfolio of work illustrating my level of experience. I get a lot of practical experience traveling around the country with my manager and the sales team, going on site and attending promotional events, which has helped build my confidence in communicating with customers.

The company has now invested in me to finish my studies and get my degree, which is more than I could have ever hoped for. As well as providing me the time and support at work I need to help with my studies, Leada Acrow has helped me get my career started.
