Hartlepool welcomes next intake of apprentices
The six new apprentices: Bethany Plant, Callum Johnston, Jack Plows, Jamie Jackson, Joel Coperman and Thomas Trainer joined up with EDF Energy’s 42 other new starters for an outward bound team building week in the Lake District.
Simon Parsons, station director at Hartlepool power station, said: “The training facilities we have at HMS Sultan are first class, and as they are away from home for the next two years we also make sure the accommodation and leisure facilities match that.
“We have just welcomed the third years to back site, and they will spend the next two years completing their training with the teams here at Hartlepool. They will then be offered full-time roles on site.
“Many of our apprentices go on to take on more senior roles very quickly, and that is testament to the training they get but also the calibre of people we appoint.”
Nicola Spindloe, Hartlepool’s apprentice co-ordinator, said: “As the search is soon to start for recruiting our 2017 intake of apprentices we have some interesting events coming up that will introduce EDF Energy and the modern apprenticeship scheme we have on offer.”
A team from the station attended a Careers Fair in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, Hartlepool on Saturday October 1 to discuss the maintenance apprenticeship scheme.
Other events are planned for Hartlepool’s Visitor Centre: on November 17 and 22 the site is running ‘apprentice awareness’ sessions starting at 1pm. To book a place email email@example.com.
And on December 10 and 11, the station has two drop-in sessions, 9.30am – 11am and 1pm 2.30pm. On December 13, the site is holding a ‘workshop in a box’ where students get creative and invent their very own bedroom gadgets. This runs from 9.30am – 2pm, to book a place on these events contact: Nicola.firstname.lastname@example.org.
