I.C. Electrical, a Burton upon Trent-based electrical contractor, has welcomed its latest group of budding young apprentices.
The five young engineers will be joining I.C. Electrical’s strong team, working on a range of projects across the UK and abroad. Alongside their on-the-job training, the apprentices will be studying for their qualifications at Loughborough college, but also additional training both on and off site.
New joiners to the business include Ryan Sumpter, Georgina Pope, Jessica Robinson, Harry Rapley and Harry Tivey. In their first months, they will be gaining hands-on experience, learning about all aspects of a process installation, as well as further understanding the role and responsibilities as part of their initial 4-year journey to become a fully qualified electrician.
I.C. Electrical, part of international Finnish company, VEO Group, provides complete engineering solutions including the designing and building of control panels, high- and low-voltage electrical systems, as well as communication and automation systems.
Over the course of the last five years, I.C. Electrical has welcomed over 20 apprentices through its doors, many of whom have remained with the business and progressed through their careers as process industrial electricians.
Shaun Marriott, engineering director at I.C. Electrical, said: “Our apprentices are some of the most important team members at I.C. Electrical, after all, they are the next generation. We are lucky to have such an enthusiastic and hard-working group join us and I am sure they will all go far, learning from their studies and on-the-job experience.
“Forging links with local colleges, schools and training institutions is extremely important for us, not only in supporting the local economy, but also strengthening our employment pipeline for the coming years.”
