Engineering apprentices launch their energy careers at Infinis


Energy careers

Infinis is delighted to welcome its latest intake of engineering apprentices to the business. 

The new team members completed induction training before starting jobs in renewable and low carbon energy and field services. They attend college at least one day a week and study vocational qualifications - including maintenance and operations engineering and mechatronics. 

The recruits have access to workplace mentors, who share knowledge and offer guidance where needed. This combined experience helps create a career framework and build team members’ understanding of the renewable and low carbon energy industry. 

Alana recently joined the company as an apprentice field service technician, after studying a BEng in Motorsport Technology. She said: “I wanted to get out and about and do something different, rather than sitting at a desk. I was keen to build a career in renewable energy, and the Infinis apprenticeship interested me because of the variety involved. 

“I’ve learnt a lot since starting work. Have done a few engine services, tested emissions against Environment Agency standards, and helped one of our engineers to change an after cooler gasket – I felt so proud afterwards! 

“At the end of every day, I feel I’ve accomplished something with my time. I really enjoy working with the team as well – they’re amazing and have made me feel so welcome.” 

John Okninski, human resources director at Infinis, explained that the new team members are continuing a long tradition of successful apprenticeships in the business. He said: “We are passionately committed to training and developing the energy engineers of tomorrow. 

“Apprenticeships are a terrific way to help people build skills, by combining learning with practical job-based training. Many team members originally joined Infinis as apprentices before moving into specialist jobs and management positions. Often, after training they become mentors to the next generation of apprentices – which helps us to build a pipeline of future talent.” 

Infinis offers multiple apprenticeship career paths for people who want to work in renewable energy. There are different routes to choose from, depending on individual interests and experience. 

Applications for the next apprenticeship intake will be advertised in spring 2024.
