“The team we have here is an invaluable asset, and to be part of a company with such vast experience is a privilege. I would thoroughly recommend a career within GTES.”
- EDDIE, GENERAL MANAGER
We recognise that our people are our greatest assets.
We have cultivated a team of knowledgeable-technicians who have the same passion for
improvement as we do. They’re the kind of people who want to see more, do more, be more – and work for a company that achieves more.
The aviation industry is changing fast, but we work hard to evolve with it. As a business, our capabilities and scopes of works are continually expanding, and in order to keep up with customer demand, we need to welcome more exceptional talent into the fold.
If you’re interested in working at a modern, dynamic and people-centric company with a proven track record of success, here’s a taste of what you can expect from a career with GT Engine Services.
GT Engine Services is fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the most thriving, picturesque towns and villages the United Kingdom has to offer. We are proud of where we are based which is why we regularly get involved and support local charity events.
We place a lot of our resources into developing new talent. We recognise there’s a global shortage of skills within our industry, and we work closely with the Stansted Aviation College to offer tailored courses and work-based apprenticeships to budding engineers.
Our team offers initial and continual training in EWIS, human factors, fuel tank safety and forklift operations, and we run two apprenticeship schemes in Aircraft Maintenance and Structures. Bespoke courses can be developed at your request. We happily support staff who want to undertake additional training in Part 66 modules after work hours. And, of course, you’ll receive plenty of on-the-job training under the watchful eyes of our experienced technicians.
“GT Engine Services helped me to do more and be more. As well as learning from people in your team who have been there, seen it and done it, more formal coaching and training will give you the skills that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your career.”
- MATT, JET ENGINE MECHANIC
In the last few years, we’ve not only been investing heavily in our people, but also in our equipment and processes. In 2016, we installed a new three-storey, state-of-the-art store facility at our base in Stansted. In a bid to remain a viable alternative to our competitors, we continue to progress new working practices, including top case repairs in 2012 and modular tooling for CFM56-5 and CFM56-7 engines in 2019.
We’re constantly striving to build a fun, supportive and productive work environment, and with this in mind, we have committed to an active Equal Opportunities Policy. Everybody who works with us will be encouraged to achieve their full potential, regardless of their gender, age, orientation, nationality, disability or religious or political beliefs.
You can apply for a range of roles at GT Engine Services. As a qualified engineer, you will be providing crucial support services to some of the world’s most established airlines, aircraft operators and engine lease companies. Back office and administrative positions are also available.
There’s never been a better time to join our company. Enquire today to learn more about our current vacancies and the perks you’ll receive as a GT Engine Services employee!
We are always on the lookout for talent to grow our team, our business is increasing and we have many exciting opportunities for the right people, so if you see something you like simply send us your CV, we’d love to hear from you.

Each apprentice entering the Engineering Technician Apprenticeship programme will be on the programme for typically 42-48 months subject to role/experience/prior learning & knowledge and comprising...
Below shows the training programme timeline that is undertaken at the Stansted Airport College which is integrated into their working week with us.
We have found that the apprentices often develop skills through the daily routine of being at work and having to learn how to be effective in a commercial or business environment, as well as their studying at college. The skills, behaviours and attitudes these apprentices have developed with us include:
High standards of personal effectiveness, including attendance, punctuality, personal presentation and behaviour
High standards of safe working practices
The ability to tackle problems and work with others to come up with solutions
The ability to work independently, but also to gauge when to seek advice from more experienced colleagues
An understanding of customers’ needs and to balance these with the needs of businesses and the requirement to meet commercial deadlines, where appropriate
The ability to carry out tasks involving skills in English, mathematics and the use of technology accurately and to high standards
A willingness to reflect on their own performance and work to agreed development targets.
For some frameworks such as ours (Aviation Engineering), the average net gain to the employer is negative in the short run. This reflects the level of training required in these fields before an apprentice’s productive capacity approaches that of a skilled worker. Net gains are realised soon after an apprentice has qualified and is fully skilled.
We feel that the addition of the recent apprenticeship scheme to GTES has helped to improve productivity, staff morale, and the ability to attract and retain good staff. The bigger and more skilled our workforce becomes, the more exciting opportunities there will be presented to GTES for the future.
We feel confident that the future of apprenticeships will also see value in the below for GTES:
Development of new talent to deliver growth and plan for succession of older employees – this was particularly important for employers who were unable to recruit suitably qualified and experienced staff
We can develop employees who are committed to the company’s values and ethos
Introduced new ideas and new ways of working as a result of the off-the-job training
Ensure that our apprentices develop high standards of safe working practices
Reduce turnover of staff (due to apprentices felt valued by the employer investing in their training)
We aim to recruit Apprentices into the business on a regular basis, as GTES continues to grow.
GTES contribute well to planning the apprenticeship, often through additional training at work and we have experienced colleagues who act as mentors.
We provide projects in the workplace that go beyond the apprentices’ current job role and prepared them well for more responsibility or promotion.
With our continuing growth and development as a company, we are really excited to see how the apprenticeship programme develops the business further.
We have had great success with our apprentices’ who have worked their way up to top-grade mechanics and now have a promising career ahead. Most of our workforce began their careers through an apprenticeship scheme, so we know the value of a promising long-term career that can be achieved.
