Hit the ground running

MDL has a long track record of developing skilled employees through apprenticeships.

Our apprenticeship programmes allow individuals to learn on-the-job with the support of our experienced workforce, all while gaining a nationally-recognised qualification at the same time.

MDL apprenticeships prepare staff for various career paths – whether in an office, in the yard or working offshore.

In addition to apprenticeships, from time to time we offer other work experience opportunities, including internships and (industrial) placements. Our skilled team can support a variety of disciplines and help you gain invaluable experience and skills.

Apprentice success story
The Apprentice that became the go-to machinist.

Evaldas joined MDL in June 2018 as an Apprentice Mechanical Technician, having at that point completed his first year in college, undertaking a Modern Apprenticeship in Mechanical Manufacturing.

One of Evaldas’ early notable projects was to be part of a four-man team who travelled to Norway to carry out maintenance works on a pipelay system. This trip - comprising of 18 days of varied work scopes - gave Evaldas his first chance to see what working away from home was like, as well as some great hands-on experience of executing a project on a tight schedule at a customer’s facility.

More recently he undertook his first offshore trip: working with a seasoned MDL Offshore Supervisor and Electrical Technician, replacing a range of hoist winches on a North Sea platform.

In that time Evaldas has made his mark on MDL, becoming the go-to machinist (notably making around 75% of all the location pins on a new tensioner).

He was also one of only three students selected to represent his college at the Scottish IMECHE Engineering competition in Fife.

Finally, in August 2021 he passed his last-year qualifications to become a fully qualified Mechanical Technician - and achieved top marks in all modules he was enrolled in.

His Team Lead Jim Guthrie commented:

“I’ve been really pleased with Evaldas, think he has done really well - always been in the top 3 in his classes and performs well at MDL also.”
