Allianz relaunches Engineering Surveyor apprenticeship after successful debut

Posted: 25 May 2022


After a fantastic first year of the Allianz Engineering Surveyor Apprenticeship, Allianz is inviting applications for a second year of the scheme in affiliation with SAFed & Fareham College.

Last year, Allianz welcomed nine excited and eager apprentices from all walks of life and experience into the company, to earn while they learn from engineering experts in the first steps of their surveyor journey.

Those apprentices are currently undertaking a two-year programme which, upon completion, will leave them with a Level 4 qualification in Engineer Surveying, along with professional registration (MSOE & EngTech), allowing them to progress into a permanent role of Engineer Surveyor for Allianz if they wish to stay with the company.

As part of the training, the apprentices will assess a wide range of installations, these could be lifts located in Canary Wharf or a hydraulic excavator in Birmingham working on HS2.

After just six months of the scheme, following company induction, college learning modules with our partner Fareham College, and initial job training, apprentices will head out into the field to gain on-site experience of their new career.

One exciting venue used for imbedding lift knowledge and experience was the National Lift Tower in Northampton, where they had first-hand experience inspecting lift mechanisms in a safe and controlled environment by one of our Specialist Engineers.

Their progress has been documented in video, which you can see by clicking here.

Martin Ball, head of inspection at Allianz Engineering, Construction and Power said: “The response we had last year was fantastic, really encouraging. And watching the apprentices’ progress, how much their confidence has grown is an indicator to how great the scheme is. We are so excited to open it up again for a second year.

“We want the best, most enthusiastic people to apply for this, regardless of how old you are, we know it is a fantastic scheme. We want to grow our already market-leading pool of Engineer Surveyors.

“So apply, and come be part of a great workforce, and learn your trade from the best in the business.”

Applications close on 9th June. Visit the website to find out more and to apply.
