Engineering apprentices enjoy early career success


There is a lot of complex machinery at our three sites and it’s vital that we have a strong engineering team to deal with pro-active maintenance and repairs when required.

Committed to recruiting and educating team members of the future, our apprenticeship programme sees us recruit across many areas of the business, including Engineering.

Currently we have six engineering apprentices that work across our sites.

Of our current Engineering apprentices, Brandon Bobbin started his apprenticeship first and will qualify this summer. He is joined at Coalville by Mackenzie Fieldsend, Alfie Kerr-Preston, and Alex Hill. Dean Hall is based at our Preston site and transferred from being a Production Operator giving him prior knowledge to support his learning. Lewis Ross has joined the team at Larkhall as an engineering apprentice ready for the move to Eurocentral.

All are undertaking Level 3 Engineering apprenticeships which will see them fully qualified upon successful completion of the course.

Brandon Bobbin commented; “This has been a great way for me to start my engineering career, and my career with Board24, and a great alternative to full time study options that are available.

“For people who like to work and learn at the same time the opportunities that Board24 has are perfect, and I really enjoy the course and my work.”

Apprentices at Coalville are receiving training from SMB Group, Dean at Preston is working with Training 2000 Ltd and Lewis is supported by New College Lanarkshire.

“Such has been the success of our engineering apprentices, we are now actively recruiting for one at our Larkhall site; a particularly exciting opportunity as we move closer to opening our new Scottish facility, Euro Central, early in 2024,” said Judith Chadwick, Head of HR, Board24.

“We look forward to continued success with our apprenticeship programme, and to developing the careers of young people in our communities.”
