Following continued growth and an ambitious relocation to a world-class, 120,000 sq ft facility, Houghton International has recently welcomed a new cohort of apprentices to the business.
We would like to offer a warm welcome to Owen Bradbury, who has joined our Rail division, Lewis Kelly, who will be working in our Electro Mechanical Services division, Kyle Iveson who has joined our Pumps division and Jacob Bell in the Winding team. We would also like to welcome Raymond Wanless who has joined as a Winding trainee.
In their first few months, the new starters will be supported by other, more experienced apprentices and the wider team as they begin work and start to get to grips with their new roles. Alongside on-the-job training, they will attend college to gain both a practical and theoretical understanding of electro mechanical engineering.
Craig Hutton, Deputy CEO and Operations Director at Houghton International, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome five new trainees to Houghton International and look forward to contributing to their professional growth within the company. I’m sure they will quickly settle in and become integral parts of their teams. I started my career as an apprentice myself and I would encourage all our trainees to make the most of every opportunity, and, in particular, to learn from the wealth of experience in the teams they are joining.
Apprentices are an essential part of our team and we have seen a number of former apprentices continue onto senior roles supporting the overall development of the business. I would encourage anyone with an interest in joining Houghton International to get in touch to find out more about us and what we have to offer.”
Houghton International’s award-winning apprenticeship programme provides young people with the opportunity to earn while they learn and become an integral part of the company’s future.
