The event, which will take place on Wednesday 26 April 2023, from 5.30 to 7.30pm, will enable prospective applicants to talk to college representatives about the apprenticeships, as well as see the factory and speak to employees, including current apprentices and engineering staff about their roles.

Employer engagement manager Lee Speed said: “For individuals with an interest in general engineering, electrical engineering as well as fabrications and welding this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about these roles within a well-established company which specialises in switchgear and control panel applications.

“There could be the opportunity to apply for a number of vacancies at the open evening should individuals have the pre-requisite qualifications.”
