Job swap brings insight into creating top tradespeople of the future

This week I had the pleasure of visiting Liebherr Sunderland Works – which manufacturers maritime cranes, off-shore cranes and port cranes – as part of a special Job Swap with apprentices.


For the first part of the swap, I joined apprentices at the Deptford plant – where I witnessed the continuation of our city’s proud tradition for producing top quality tradespeople.


The second part of the job swap involved inviting the apprentices back to my office in Norfolk Street, to find out more about the role of an MP working in the North East.

I have always been impressed by Liebherr’s commitment to providing quality apprenticeships for young people. I thoroughly enjoyed the job swap, which allowed me to see how Liebherr is equipping young people with valuable skills.

• Liebherr apprentices are currently taking part in the Brathay Apprentice Challenge 2017 – the official search for the apprentice team of the year, supported by the National Apprenticeship Service. Good luck!
