YPS Welcome Apprenticeship Trio

Jake Martin - Blog

This year we are championing the positive impact of apprentices with three new hires ahead of National Apprenticeship Week (6th -10th March 2017).

The recruits include Jake Martin, George Reed-Hill, and Keiron Luty; all three join our Service Engineer Apprenticeship Programme. In light of Jake’s success – following two years on the programme – the latest additions George and Keiron represent an expansion of the scheme and an investment in the service department at YPS.

As the country embraces annual National Apprenticeship Week, designed to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy, award-winning YPS is looking at the contributions of our own new starters.

Working alongside a team of experienced engineers at our workshop, the programme involves learning the ins-and-outs of our shrink wrapping machines. Their work includes a variety of customer on-site visits at several well-known clients, across many different industries. We are confident that by investing in apprentices we can future-proof our business and maintain our targets for customer satisfaction whilst supporting young professionals seeking a diverse job in a fast-paced industry.

With a qualification from Hull Technical College, George brings a Level 3 in Electrical Engineering and a 17th Edition in wiring regulations. Jake and Keiron both attend Bradford College, working towards achieving industry recognised accreditations. As well as servicing and maintaining our state-of-the-art equipment, all three apprentices have been involved with a large number and variety of installations, including some multi-million pound contracts.

Glyn Johnson, MD of YPS, said: “These apprenticeships are part of YPS’ commitment to investing in the future. We’re absolutely delighted with the progress Jake, George and Keiron have been making – National Apprenticeship Week is a fitting time to reflect on their fantastic achievements. We’re thrilled with the valuable contributions they have already made, they bring new a fresh perspective which we find invaluable. Alongside their learning at Bradford College, we’re proud to be offering the next generation structured real-world, practical experience at YPS.”
