On 14th July 2015 Extract Technology hosted a morning session for young visitors. Paul Hudson, Technical Operations Director invited students who are thinking about enrolling on an apprenticeship in the manufacturing industry for his “Introduction to manufacturing” morning.
The visit involved a tour around the Technical Assembly and Fabrication areas as well as a presentation focused about the history of the business, its successful processes and how young people can benefit from starting their career path as apprentices at Extract. It’s not coincidental that Paul Hudson delivered this presentation – he’s a fantastic example as he also started as an apprentice himself over 25 years ago.
Amongst the visitors Extract Technology welcomed 3 Kirklees College students and 1 young adult participating in the Headstart programme funded scheme. The programme is aimed at closing the skills gap within the young adults demographic.
Jaime Larder, the HR officer commented: “The message we are striving to deliver to the young adults is that an Engineering Apprenticeship is more than just a job; we want to demonstrate to them how fulfilling a career in Engineering can be. Here at Extract Technology we can do just that, we have a highly skilled and motivated workforce that are willing and eager to share their knowledge, we have a management team that is dedicated to future-proofing the business and we have a fantastic product range to support a varied work–based training programme”.
