Greenfield are finding the long term commitment to apprenticeships are making good business sense. At present we have a tight-knit group of 11 apprentices at various stages of their training. With an additional group of 7 recently having finished their formal training programmes. The skill shortages within the sheet metal engineering sector is the biggest threat to our continued growth. We pride ourselves in offering a clear focus to young students by giving a different route to harness their talent and true potential to become as highly skilled in the future. We are now looking to start 2018 intake of handpicked apprentices to join our team. If you would like more information please visit our website for more details.
“By continually training people with the right skills this will in turn provide greater opportunities for any individual with a wider range of engineering skills. This can help to take the person onto new responsibilities and roles in the future. What we are doing can only help in a small way to reduce skill shortages in our area and improve the talent pipeline, maximising staff potential in the workplace increasing their skills and value within the business. This has been a key part of our HR strategy from the start. Some of our apprentices have actually gone onto fill high-profile positions within the company, which shows if you work hard and show commitment to your career you can work your way up to the top.” – Simon Walker Operations Director.
