Egremont-based business Delkia is launching five short videos, one each day during National Apprenticeship Week, to celebrate the contribution of apprenticeships in roles such as business administration, marketing, HR, electrical and electronic engineering, and project management.
Delkia supports apprenticeships to build skills and develop the leaders of the future. In the last year two people have successfully completed apprenticeships at Delkia, with a further three degree-level apprentices in place, all learning the skills they need for life.
Kurt Canfield, the firm’s chief executive said: “Delkia is dedicated to offering opportunities to young people in to join a fast-growing technology company and build the skills they need for their future careers and life.
“In the last year we have had two people successfully complete their apprenticeships who have gone on to start permanent employment with Delkia and we have three degree-level apprentices making a massive contribution in their roles in engineering, project management and marketing.
“This is just part of our commitment to supporting STEM careers and continuing to grow Delkia as the company goes from success to success.”
Hayden, a degree-level project management apprentice based at Delkia’s Westlakes Science and Technology Park headquarters said: “Delkia’s welcoming atmosphere provides an apprentice with the much-needed support and encouragement to consistently improve and grow into their role.
The team are highly entrusting, assisting apprentices with greater responsibilities; a challenging but rewarding and enjoyable experience.”
Sophie, who recently completed her Level 3 HR apprenticeship and has now taken on a full-time role as HR advisor said: “Embarking on an apprenticeship provided me with a unique set of skills that I feel I wouldn’t have even come across if I had chosen any other path and fostered a deeper understanding of the industry Delkia operate in. I have cultivated problem solving abilities, prioritisation, and a strong work ethic”
Jack, a design engineering apprentice based at Egremont, said: “Delkia is the best place to do an apprenticeship as you get to work with experienced colleagues, who help you progress through your apprenticeship and career.”
Leisha, Business Support apprentice said: “Delkia is a great place to do an apprenticeship as it offers wide range of hands-on training which increases engagement within your role and improves your critical thinking skills.”
