40 new apprentices being hired by Nissan

Nissan is hiring up to 40 new apprentices to tackle the shortage of skilled labour in Ireland that has been created by the rapid development of technology driving the demand for connected, autonomous and electric cars.

Applications are now open online and successful candidates will be employed by local Nissan dealerships across Ireland before the end of the year and mentored and trained over four years to become qualified automotive technicians.

The top scoring graduate will receive a scholarship to pursue a degree in automotive engineering at a third-level institute of their choice as well as a brand new, taxed and insured Nissan to drive for a year.

The ‘Nissan Generation Next Apprentice Academy’ has been specially developed by Nissan to support the next generation of master technicians and industry leaders who are ambitious and focused on developing a career within the Irish motor industry.
