Apprenticeships at Dunfermline

Gray & Adams is the UK market leader in the manufacture of specialist temperature-controlled and bespoke vehicles. Founded in 1957, Gray & Adams continues to be a family-owned business with over 750 employees. The company’s HQ and main production facility is based in Fraserburgh with operational sites in Doncaster, Dunfermline, and Newtownabbey.

Joint Managing Directors, James Gray OBE and Peter Gray OBE recognise the importance of apprenticeships to the business and have overseen one of the most impressive apprenticeship schemes in Scotland at their Fraserburgh HQ.

The Dunfermline manufacturing facility shares the same vision and importance of nurturing emerging talent and attracting key skills into the industry to continue the success of its long-standing, family-run business. We are committed to creating opportunities and development paths for young people to fulfil their potential, in turn minimising the risk of potential industry skill gaps in the future.

To do this, Gray & Adams Dunfermline are offering a Modern Apprenticeship scheme in partnership with Forth Valley College, allowing an apprentice the opportunity to achieve SCQF Level 7, an industry-recognised qualification. Our Apprenticeship Programme offers opportunities to individuals looking to develop their skills within a working environment. The course, which is undertaken fully onsite, is supported by an internal verifier from Forth Valley College and mentoring from staff within the business.

There is a huge focus on continuous development and support at Gray & Adams Dunfermline, with 12 young people joining the apprenticeship scheme to date. Gray & Adams’ longstanding commitment to the apprenticeship programme is showcased through several former apprentices working their way into specialist or senior positions. This is a testament to the company’s ethos of developing and supporting their people, throughout their career journey.

Gray & Adams is committed to the next generation of industry talent, this begins with our apprentices.
