Major employer in the county offering apprenticeships

A major employer in the county is offering apprenticeships.

Liebherr Container Cranes, which is based in Fossa and employs nearly 800 people, is looking for apprentices in a number of areas, including the electrical, mechanical and fabrication divisions.

Those interested can apply directly to the company before the 7th of September.

Last month, staff in the plant were informed they will be put on a three-day week from September to December.

SIPTU and Liebherr management agreed to mediation in an effort to minimise jobs losses.
