Wright Engineering is delighted to welcome Nathan Fores (17), James Maddock (16) and Adam Miller (18) who have recently joined the company as apprentices.
The company received hundreds of applications for its apprenticeship scheme and whilst it was initially intent on recruiting one apprentice, the quality and enthusiasm displayed by the trio during the process resulted in the company shifting its recruitment position.
Nathan is training to become a Project Engineer and James and Adam are both training to become Design Engineers. The trio will obtain practical work experience in their related departments and complete placements in other areas of the business to give a rounded view of how the company operates and the different departments interact.
In addition, the trio will attend Sheffield College over the next four years and undertake the Engineering Technical Apprenticeship course. Following successful completion, the trio will continue onto higher education in order to obtain an HNC, HND and finally, a degree in engineering or a related discipline.
Chris Boden-Hook (Managing Director) said ‘Wright Engineering is always on the lookout for high quality candidates at all levels to bolster its existing team. I am very pleased that Nathan, James and Adam have joined the company during this recent recruitment drive. There is in fact another engineering apprentice scheduled to join next year. The company continues to go from strength to strength and along with existing works, has several new major projects in the pipeline. As such, it is really important that succession planning and workforce investment remains at the forefront of our business strategy’.
