Following the success of their first apprenticeship scheme last year, Telindus will this year again be working in association with the National Apprenticeship Service to offer six young people the opportunity to join their apprenticeship scheme in October.
Four of the apprentices will be working within the engineering team, led by Engineering Manager Ross Pickett, and another two will be working with Jenny O’Donoghue, Head of Service Operations.
Telindus prides itself on its excellent pedigree for growing technical talent, and is excited about the prospects that this scheme offers both the apprentices and the company.
Jo McCabe, Human Resources Manager at Telindus, commented: “It’s fantastic to be able to create these opportunities for the younger generation, and after such a successful run last year, we’re delighted to be working with the National Apprenticeship Service again.”
The National Apprenticeship Service is a Government funded scheme for 16-24 year olds, which offers them a way into work, and an opportunity to learn a skill or trade. At the end of the apprenticeship, they leave readily equipped to either join the company they worked for on a permanent basis, or make that first step onto the career ladder elsewhere.
Ismaila Ibrahim, Telindus Apprentice, comments: “I have been an apprentice for nine months and I can say the skills that I have learnt during my time as an apprentice have equipped me with the competence and experience I require to progress in my career.
Telindus will be conducting an assessment and interview phase for its new candidates this coming September, with successful candidates starting in October.
