Siemens is looking for its initial batch of Hull apprentices to have the so-called “X-factor”.

The engineering company called for this credential as it started advertising for its first batch of apprenticeships today.

The successful candidates will work in the company’s city-based offshore wind power industry.

They have until a week on Sunday (March 20) to apply with their roles starting in September. This is when Siemens blade factory starts production.

Siemens is advertising posts for 14 four-year Advanced Apprenticeships in Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture.

Candidates must have science, English language and maths GCSE to at least a C grade. An ICT Level 2 and great aptitudes and attitudes are also great advantages.

Applicants successfully completing the course will have a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Manufacturing Engineering and NVQ Level 3 Extended Diploma in Composite Engineering.

HR head for the Hull-based project, Carolyn Woolway said: “We’re expecting a very high level of interest in these positions and we’ll be looking for candidates with the x-factor – people who are enthusiastic about manufacturing and engineering, have a genuine commitment to the apprenticeships and can also demonstrate initiative, drive and the ability to think creatively.”
