Sewtec Recruits Record Number of Apprentices

10 May 2024

Sewtec has a proven history of recruiting apprentices providing them with the right development and skills to become a specialist in their field and this year we are proud to have recruited a record number of apprentices across various departments.

Since Sewtec relocated to Automation House in 2020 the business has continued to grow to become one of the biggest UK based automation companies. 

Our people are key to the success of our business. They are passionate about their jobs and thrive on a challenge, proactively looking to innovate and develop so we can deliver projects of the highest standard to our customers. 

We work to create an inclusive, motivating workplace where all of our team feel valued and their efforts are appreciated. By creating this rewarding environment, our people can work together to make a difference and achieve industry-leading results. 

We champion future talent by working closely with nearby schools, colleges and universities. We offer site visits, work placements, summer work, traineeships, career counselling, CV and interview preparation sessions. We regularly receive a number of requests from students each year expressing an interest in engineering and wanting to visit Automation House to gain a better insight into Sewtec and the world of automation. 

In 2024, we have recruited a record 7 apprentices across various departments including Mechanical and Electrical Fitting, CNC Machining, Fabrication and Purchasing.  These apprentices will gain the skills required to not only work in engineering but within automation and with bespoke machinery.

Joanne Carrington, HR Manager said “Apprentices have always been a big part of Sewtec’s success with many current employees being apprenticeship trained.  To be able to recruit 7 apprentices shows how the business has grown and upon successful completion, all apprentices will be able to continue their career with Sewtec and play a vital part in our success”.
