New Apprentice Boosts Production

Movement solution specialists Movetech UK has highlighted its commitment to advancing skilled engineers by recruiting another new apprentice, increasing the total number of apprenticeships recruited to four, in as many years.

New apprentice Able Gadimoh, 19, had very little practical engineering experience before joining Movetech UK, however his positive approach and dedication to succeed is evident he is an extremely worthy candidate to take on the role.

Able has enrolled with the Bolton based company on a formal engineering apprenticeship scheme through Alliance Learning, Horwich. As part of his hands-on apprenticeship, Able will attend Alliance Learning once a week to further his knowledge and facilitate his awareness within the engineering industry.

"We have a great relationship with Alliance Learning and we’re always very impressed with the service they provide for both us as a company and our new apprentices" says Movetech UK's Operations Director, Russell Entwistle. "They have helped us hugely in formalising Able’s apprenticeship scheme in advanced mechanical engineering, offering Able a structured path that will lead to formal, universally recognised qualifications, serving him, and us, better in the future."

Able was delighted when he was selected for the apprentice role at Movetech UK. "I jumped at the chance to apply for the position because I was keen to be part of a successful local company that knows all the ins and outs when it comes to engineering and manufacturing” said Able.

He then went on to say: “Since starting a couple of weeks ago, everyone has made me feel really welcome and I am looking forward to getting hands on and achieving my goals, as well as helping the company to continue to thrive along the way."

Managing Director; Tim Entwistle, is enthusiastic about the added value the new recruit will bring to the company. "We did have an immediate need for more skilled hands to fulfil our existing order book and to boost production," he says. "However just as important was the need to invest in the future or our planned growth could not occur. There is a strong desire by the company's management team and employees to grow the business, and to do this we must build on existing strengths and expand our capabilities."

Our recruitment drive has focused on finding high calibre, motivated people with the intelligence and aptitude to learn combined with a positive, 'can-do' attitude. We take pride in the flexibility of our workforce, which is vital if we are to provide the high quality service we sell.

"Over the 58 years Movetech UK (British Turntable Company) has been trading, the skills of the workforce have evolved, such that we now have highly versatile, competent and adaptable people capable of dealing with whatever opportunities and challenges they are presented with.

"We believe that our investment in a flexible workforce has been key to our remaining in business though more than one recession, including the most recent, where we implemented a survival strategy that ensured we did not compromise on our core strategic directional goals."
