Our colleagues can look ahead and see a leadership career with us - we can support progression into supervisory, management and senior management positions as well as mentoring roles to support the next generation of engineers with their learning and development through our successful apprenticeship programmes.
With five sites across Cambridgeshire we can provide a good place to work for both skilled and unskilled roles – we aim to recruit from the local areas we work in and regularly share our job adverts on local Facebook groups – this encourages employment for our local economy and also supports our colleagues to be able to travel to work sustainably, some making use of our cycle to work scheme.
We continue to inspire the next generation of engineers who are integral to our industrial and economical future within the UK through annual intakes of new apprentices – we currently have seven apprentices across two sites and will be recruiting a further two in September. Mentoring on the job also provides our established engineers a formal opportunity to share their knowledge and experience which can provide job satisfaction and continued development for them.
We have links with Cambs Regional College and College of West Anglia and look forward to the opening of the new training college connected to Stainless Metalcraft and supporting with evolving programmes suitable for local employment opportunities. We are also representing ourselves at the CWA open day in March to provide prospective engineering apprentices a local choice and a future of employment and progression.
Our employee offer and experience is important to us and we are investing in developing this to be an employer of choice in the local area. We have a workforce that reflects the local community and is diverse in our age profile – we have recently implemented ‘First day of school’ day for parents to have a paid day off to take their reception aged child on that first memorable walk to school and at the other end of the age bracket we have considered our Grandparents and implemented a ‘Grandparent Day’ where our colleagues welcoming a new Grandchild can have a paid day off to celebrate.
Listening and engaging with our workforce is key to building a successful team and performing business – we have this month elected a Group Colleague Committee to come together and meet with senior management to represent the voice of our workforce across all site and support us with the implementation of new working practices, consult on change and work on new innovative ideas to improve the environment and working conditions together.
