Firm bolsters apprenticeships after record year

LEADING PPE firm Alpha Solway has expanded its apprenticeship scheme following a period of substantial growth for the business over the last 12 months.

The innovative safety solutions company has created half a dozen additional apprenticeship placements at its site in Annan across professions including engineering, finance, administration, sales and much more.

The new placements will double the size of Alpha Solway’s apprenticeship programme – and they have also pledged to continue to increase the number of apprenticeship opportunities.

Head of People at Globus Group Helen Dawson said: “We’re delighted to expand our apprenticeship scheme across the Group. Employing young talent is integral to help the business continue to grow and our hope is that they stay with us for the long term and build fulfilling careers in our industry.

“There are endless opportunities throughout the scheme for professional development, including regular training and career progression, and many apprentices are promoted throughout their journey at Globus Group.”

Production operative Mary Robinson, 22, was the first apprentice to complete the scheme, and said: “The Alpha Solway apprenticeship has been integral to shaping my future career. Working here has felt like being a part of a wider family which has been essential in building my confidence and helping to learn the trade so quickly.

“Finishing the apprentice felt like a huge accomplishment and I’m truly looking forward to gaining further experience and developing my skill set here in a variety of areas within production.

“My advice to any young person considering the apprenticeship route would be to absolutely throw yourself in and give it a go.”
