A recycling company who’s relocated to Warrington has created 30 local jobs, which included recruiting 18 apprentices.
Northwood Environmental Ltd, in partnership with Bramhalls, which collects and reprocesses recyclable material, was keen to open their employment to young people. The recruitment of the apprentices was also supported by Warrington Borough Council.
The new recruits started on Monday 28 May and are completing Level 2 Performing Manufacturing Operations apprenticeships. They will develop the skills and knowledge to carry out a range of engineering and manufacturing processes at semi-skilled and operator level.
Terry O’Neill, leader of the council (Lab, Burtonwood and Winwick) said: "This is a great opportunity and we would encourage any Warrington employer to see for themselves the benefits that apprenticeships can give to their businesses – apprenticeships do provide the workers for our future.”
James Jennings, Owner of Northwood Environmental, said: "We’re here to give Warrington’s young people the skills and training that they need, which will allow our company to thrive, so supporting the local economy and the UK manufacturing industry as a whole.”
