AESSEAL reports that it has had an active apprenticeship programme for many years, but with a high bias on apprenticeships for machining.
For the 2018 intake the Company has decided to recruit 12 apprentices for its Machine Shop, but a further 28 people in other support roles.
Apprenticeships will be offered in Computer Aided Manufacturing, Reliability, Marketing, Design, HR, Business Assurance, Sales, the Stores function, IT, the Test House, the Purchasing function, the Systems Division, the Commercial Department and other internal functions at its Rotherham facilities.
At the end of the apprenticeship the successful applicants, depending on the area they hold their apprenticeship in, will be expected to achieve Engineering Technician level, or an NVQ in, for example, Marketing or Sales. Other qualifications might include BTech in Business Administration, Certificate in Warehousing and Storage, or Infrastructure Technician (IT).
A Company spokesman said that following the very large growth in sales in 2017, the Company had continued to grow in 2018 with May 2018 proving to be a record month with sales of over £16.25 million.
Julia Bloomer, Head of Learning Development, said, “It is our intention to have a very significant apprentice intake, for all areas of the business, including our traditional manufacturing apprenticeships.
We fully intend to ensure that all of our apprentice intake is given the opportunity to study appropriate qualifications. Mentors have been interviewed and selected for all areas of the business for which apprenticeships have been approved. The business is therefore confident that the apprenticeships will work both for the successful candidates and for the need of a growing organisation to hire even more great people”.
We are having an open day on the 17th of July from 4pm until 7pm at AESSEAL Rotherham Mill Close if you wish to register click here.
