Gas interlock maker S&S Northern is putting its faith in young blood to drive the company forward by recruiting its third apprentice in the space of two years.
Two of its apprentices — trainee estimator George Dobson and customer service engineer Steven Halliday — have picked up NVQs this year, and their progress has prompted the company to go out and recruit a third apprentice.
Daniel Carr recently joined S&S’s southern branch in Shoeburyness, Essex as a business administration apprentice and he is now working towards his Business Administration NVQ Level 2 Apprenticeship.
Carr supports the team by processing and dispatching all customer orders.
Steve McMahon, managing director at S&S, said: “Recruiting apprentices really appeals to us because we need young people who can grow with the company and who we can train to do things the way we want to meet the needs of the business.”
He said that the new ideas and input the firm has received from its apprentices has benefitted the company. “They bring new skills to the table which helps us to stay fresh and this has unquestionably helped us to maintain year-on-year growth,” he concluded.
