Ransomes Jacobsen joins trend for modern apprenticeships

Ransomes Jacobsen has joined the growing list of contractors and suppliers to re-introduce apprenticeships.

The Ipswich mower maker will recruit five trainees in January. They will spend three-to-five years notching up HNC or equivalent qualifications in mechanical or electrical engineering.

Operations director Simon Rainger said: "These modern apprenticeships will feature a high level of on-the-job tuition as well as day release."

Former Ransomes Jacobsen apprentices include numerous well-known faces in the grounds care industry, including Bob Bevan at Bernhard Grinders, Graham Dale at Lely UK and Adrian Kersey at Bartram Mowers.
