Amanda Milling, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, is encouraging budding engineers to apply to become an apprentice with Gestamp Tallent Limited, after they announced a new engineering apprenticeship drive.
The Cannock based company manufactures car components for the automotive supply chain, both in the UK and abroad. They are seeking to recruit Cannock based apprentices for the next generation of engineers at the company.
Building a career after leaving school is one of life’s big challenges. Choosing a profession and company where young people are able to establish a fulfilling working life is just part of this challenge. However, for those who choose engineering and manufacturing, there are excellent career opportunities available in Cannock. A European shortage of engineers gives businesses a real headache when it comes to staying competitive in the world marketplace, but for the young person looking to learn, gain experience and flourish in engineering, this shortage couldn’t be better news.
Ian Middleton, UK Chairman and Country Manager at Gestamp Tallent said: “Apprenticeships have always been a great way of bridging the gap between school and a skilled role. Along the way, some have abused the term ‘Apprenticeship’ and damaged its reputation but recent reviews and changes have seen significant improvements in quality standards. Gestamp Tallent have always stood shoulder to shoulder with those companies that understand the importance of offering high quality apprenticeships that allow young learners to grow personally and professionally as well as add value to their businesses.”
Gestamp Tallent, an automotive engineering and manufacturing plant located on Wolverhampton Road in Cannock, is recruiting trainees for their 4 year multi-skilled maintenance & tool making training programmes. Apprentices get to learn in a world class training center before integrating with the plant’s engineering teams to produce body structures for BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota. World class robot and press technology is used in this plant which is part of the Spanish multinational and those that excel in this field of engineering have the support and network opportunities offered by this world leading organisation.
Amanda Milling said: “I am a firm believer in apprenticeships. They give young people the opportunity to train for a career while earning a wage. Gestamp Tallent Limited are an excellent organisation who are providing high quality apprenticeship opportunities here in Cannock and I would strongly encourage anyone interested to contact them and apply to enroll as an engineering apprentice. It could be a decision that will change their lives.”
