Chapman’s Electrical is seeking to recruit an Apprentice to work across various departments; including “White Goods” (cookers, washing machines, tumble dryers etc..), “brown goods” (audio-visual equipment), Aerial, Satellite and Electrical . The role will involve learning to install, maintain and repair products in a wide variety of environments.

This is an ideal opportunity for a good team worker who is self-motivated and seeking a practical career in a technical industry. The successful candidate will be a practically minded individual with problem solving skills and an interest in technology as well as being confident and personable to be able to deliver good customer service to our clients. 

Our company delivers a broad range of services but this position will focus on the installation, service and repair of a wide range of catering, laundry, general kitchen appliances, audio visual products as well as some exposure to the aerial & satellite and Electrical industries - working for various customers including domestic homes, local authorities, large insurance companies and builders.

Apprentices work as part of a crew gaining first-hand experience of the job but also undertake day release to achieve a recognised industry qualification.  Initially training will focus on domestic gas qualifications but in the longer term there may be the opportunity to undertake qualifications.

In order to meet college requirements for this Apprenticeship, applicants should have achieved, or expect to achieve, C grade GCSEs in Mathematics, Science and English.

Whilst not an immediate requirement, as the Service Engineer role is field based it is expected that the successful candidate will work towards attaining a driving licence.
