Apprentices set to step into work_May2015_large

Lucite International is set for its biggest intake of Production Technician Apprentices at the Cassel site in recent years when eight join shift teams working at Billingham, UK in August for the next stage of their training and development.  The eight – three former military service personnel and five school/college leavers – are currently coming to the end of their apprenticeship training with the TTE Technical Training Group.

Melanie Jury, Cassel Site Director, said: “It’s great to be able to welcome people who we hope will be the future of our site. Our experiences with Apprentices in recent years have been superb. All have made the transition smoothly to be Production Technicians and are now helping to drive our business forward.”

Seven Apprentices were taken on in 2014 and the production workforce at Cassel now includes 26 technicians who have joined through an apprenticeship route in recent years, including 5 ex-forces personnel.

Melanie added: “We have been particularly impressed with our former military recruits who bring engineering experience with technical and interpersonal skills that really fit well with our teams”.
