ACTIONPLAS PLANNING TO INVEST IN LOCAL ENGINEERING TALENT

Member News

This September Actionplas introduced an apprenticeship scheme that aims to recruit the next generation of engineers.

Working closely with Appris, a Bradford based charity organisation dedicated to providing specialist apprenticeship training for young people, the speciality plastics manufacturer is looking to recruit three Level 3 apprentices that will work in its CNC milling, turning and fabrication and routing departments.

“We’re really excited about investing in our local economy and to be able to create these brilliant opportunities for young Yorkshire residents entering the local workforce,” said Chris Wray, managing director at ActionPlas.

“We are enjoying fantastic success following recent investment in facilities, staff and machinery, with huge demand for our innovative products so this is the perfect opportunity for anyone with determination, talent and enthusiasm.

“We can help to build new careers while ensuring our customers continue to enjoy a high-quality service.”

Kenny Stoddart, Operations Director at Appris said: “It’s fantastic that a leading Yorkshire-based manufacturer, such as ActionPlas, is offering apprenticeships to the local community – it’s a fantastic way to future proof their workforce and for young people to see there are alternative routes to finding a skilled and rewarding career in engineering and manufacturing.”

“Engineering plays a vital role in driving the UK economy and the demand for qualified engineers is well recognised by employers, the engineering profession and the government.”

Actionplas has already attracted excellent candidates from local comprehensive school and sixth form, Pudsey Grangefield School.
