TEG are a specialist engineering services company providing tailor made solutions to the aviation, biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical industries around the globe. The industries we operate in, whilst very different, all require the same engineering capabilities to service their needs. These capabilities are Design, Metrology, CAM, CNC Machining (milling, EDM & turning), Fabrication, Bending, Forming, Surface Treatments and Assembly.Overseeing these capabilities is a rigorous Quality Management System (QMS) which is regularly audited by outside bodies such as the Irish Aviation Authority, European Aviation Safety Agency and Lloyds Register. 

The Role:

TEG is offering an opportunity into the high-growth Aviation, Bio-pharmaceutical and Pharmaceutical industries through the Craft of Toolmaking Apprenticeship Programme.

A toolmaker is a skilled worker who produces and maintains precision tools used in the production of metal, plastic and other materials of all shapes and sizes.

The Programme:

The level 6 apprenticeship is a 4-year programme, where you “earn while you learn”.  You’ll combine learning at college with a real job working on active projects at TEG.

On successful completion of the apprenticeship programme, apprentices are qualified to work within the recognised trade or profession. Where apprentices and craftspersons have the necessary ability and initiative, opportunities are available for advancement. These include advanced technology courses and management courses which are available in Institutes of Technology, Schools of Management and Professional Institutes.
Many apprentices use their apprenticeship qualification as a platform to launch careers such as engineers, managers, owners of businesses, teachers and instructors amongst others.

You will be innovating, ambitious, curious, have a hunger to learn. You will love nothing more than tackling complex problems. Thinking about how things could work better. You will always act with integrity and model your behaviour on the TEG values. You will represent TEG in a transparent and honest manner setting a strong example for others to follow.
