Fleet Maintenance – Vehicle Technician Apprenticeship

  • Company: Royal Mail
  • Location: Multiple Locations
  • Closing Date: 24-03-2022


Vehicle maintenance at Royal Mail isn’t what it used to be. We are phasing out our diesel and petrol vehicles in favour of electric vans and alternative fuelled trucks, all whilst equipping our technicians and workshops with the tools and training to become experts in the maintenance of these vehicles.

We service and repair approximately 45,000 light commercial vehicles a year, across 110 locations. With 50,000 vehicles – including 6,000 HGVs & trailers, our fleet is one of the largest in the UK and the Fleet Maintenance Team play a key role in keeping it moving.  The team are also award winning and recognised within the industry for their determination to improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

As a Vehicle Technician Apprentice, you’ll service and repair light vehicles, including petrol, diesel and electric vans, working on all the systems within the vehicle. Day-to-day, you could be completing routine maintenance or solving complex faults using diagnostic methods and equipment, learning everything there is to know on the job.

Our Apprentice Vehicle Technicians learn through on-the-job training and classroom learning. We take individuals with a flair for mechanics and engineering and turn them into automotive experts.
