Norbar offers engineering apprenticeships

Banbury-based manufacturer Norbar Torque Tools is hosting a series of virtual careers evenings in February, aimed at young people looking to start a career in engineering and manufacturing

With Covid-19 precluding personal attendance face to face, Norbar is instead turning to the internet to illustrate the career opportunities available. The company has scheduled open evenings to take place on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of February with slots between 6pm and 9pm bookable by attendees. Interested parties will be able to discuss the structure and job roles with Norbar’s Head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and also with Rob Alderman from the Engineering Trust. In addition, video tours of the Norbar manufacturing facilities will be available so that attendees can gain a better understanding of how an engineering working environment looks and the opportunities that this modern manufacturing facility offers successful apprenticeship applicants

Wanda Stewart-Lee observes: “The pandemic has made the job market a tougher environment than ever for young people. For manufacturers like us, it is extremely important that we do everything we can to equip young people with the skills to progress in their career. Though Covid-19 has made welcoming prospective apprentices into our facilities unfeasible, by taking our open evenings into the digital world we hope to give all of the advice and information to attendees hoping to go into engineering.”
