Calbarrie Apprenticeship Scheme
Calbarrie Compliance Services, national provider of electrical testing services, is demonstrating a commitment to supporting young adults into work through its apprenticeship scheme.
Calbarrie is employing young people in office-based roles at its head office in Cheltenham and in engineer roles across the country. Offered in partnership with local colleges, the apprenticeships are designed to give the young person real-life work experience, as well as the chance to learn skills and gain a qualification to kick-start their career and lead to a permanent position within the company.
Drew Bartlett is seven months into his one-year apprenticeship with Calbarrie’s Sales team in Cheltenham. He comments:
“Since starting with Calbarrie I’ve grown in confidence and developed my knowledge and general skills. I’m lucky enough to get involved in a wide range of activities and to try new challenges. The apprenticeship scheme gives me unique training and experience that will help me start a career which I am very thankful for.”
Calbarrie is also offering electrical engineer apprenticeships from regional operations around the country, with the chance to train and work within the local community. Calbarrie engineer apprentices can gain career skills out in the field as well as study for a City & Guilds qualification.
Tim Beardsmore, Calbarrie’s Commercial Director explains:
“We’re very pleased to be able to offer these opportunities to young people. By offering people like Drew the chance to develop a new career we hope to benefit the local economy as well as make a difference to the individual.”
