Seeking future leaders – HCMUK have launched a new apprenticeship programme

Equipment manufacturer welcomes latest intake of apprentices to help tackle rising skills shortages 

HITACHI Construction Machinery UK Ltd (HCMUK) have launched a new apprenticeship programme designed to ensure their future workforce has the necessary skills and competence for the future. 

HCMUK will take on five apprentices to be based at the company’s head office and product support centre both located in the North East. The roles range from engineering through to business administration, and Hitachi say they plan to expand on the number of apprentices across other sites and departments over the coming years.


HCMUK have partnered with Gateshead College and Zenith Training to deliver the apprenticeships across the Tyne and Wear region. 

David Roberts, CEO at HCMUK, commented: ‘We have been enhancing our learning and development programmes across the business over the past few years, and I am delighted that we are now at a stage where we can introduce an apprenticeship programme so we can grow our own talent in addition to developing the rest of the team. I am looking forward to welcoming our first cohort later this year, and excited to see them grow over the coming months and years.’

Ivan Jepson, director of business development at Gateshead College, added: ‘We’re very happy to be working in partnership with HCMUK to recruit and train the company’s very first engineering apprentices as part of its workforce development programme. Apprenticeships lie at the heart of our delivery and we’re working with HCMUK to ensure our training meets their business needs and apprentices gain the experience, knowledge, training and support they need to succeed in their role.’
