Hear from our Apprentices

Jay Jordan and Ethan Wheeler joined our Ashford Train Maintenance Centre as apprentices, working on the UK’s iconic high speed Javelin trains for HS1 – a project which introduced the first high speed line in the UK, bringing Japanese technology to the UK network.

Hear them both talk through the benefits of the Hitachi Rail apprentice programme which combines study and workplace training on pioneering trains at our depot!

Over a three year period, Jay and Ethan have excelled through our programme and are now Year 3 apprentices who, over the next couple of months, will both transition to become Maintenance Technicians.

As we continue to grow and win new innovative projects we have a number of opportunities to join our UK team to develop your career through our apprentice scheme.
