Your career with Wirtgen
Wirtgen, part of the John Deere group, is the worldwide leader in the manufacture and supply of road construction equipment, and there’s never been a better time to consider an apprenticeship with us. In order to retain our No. 1 position and constantly improve our customer offer we need to innovate and push the boundaries of technology. This was demonstrated during the resurfacing of the Silverstone Formula 1 circuit in 2019 when we supported our customer when 3D digital mapping data was used to control the surfacing machines and produce a precise finish for the Grand Prix. To continually raise these standards the need for skilled people in our industry becomes ever greater. We pride ourselves in having highly skilled Technicians servicing and repairing our customers machines in a highly professional manner. The Wirtgen business of tomorrow is an exciting and challenging business with a wide range of opportunities for the right people. If you share our passion, we’d love to hear from you!
