The sky is the limit for your career as Aer Lingus relaunches their apprenticeship programme

The Apprentices Scheme is a 4-year long programme run in conjunction with SOLAS in Shannon and DIT in Dublin, and this time around they are looking to increase the number of female apprentices in the programme.

There has been an increased demand in long and short haul flights, due to the increased number of available routes and constantly increasing passenger numbers, as well as the arrival of two new A330s in 2016, a further two A330s this Summer and more still to join the fleet in 2019 and 2020, all to push forward expansion of the company's transatlantic routes.

Hence the need for new apprentices, with Aer Lingus Chief Technical Officer (and former Aer Lingus Apprentice) Fergus Wilson saying: "[We have] a proud history of providing young people with career opportunities through our apprentice programmes."

"Following substantial growth at the airline and the introduction of new aircraft and increased routes, we are delighted to be able to provide this apprentice scheme once again to 10 new applicants looking for an exciting and challenging career."
