There is a skills shortage throughout the UK, and particularly in engineering. We of course can’t understand why this fascinating, demanding, intellectually stimulating profession isn’t at the top of every individual’s want-to-do list. Engineering sits at the heart of the majority of practical applications, from high tech through nuclear through making things come together and work – all forms of transport, housing, computing, food production, everything.
We run a continuous recruitment and education programme. We apply this to both apprentices and all new recruits. We train and educate across all areas of our work including safe engineering and locksmithing – depending on the experience and level of applicants. For apprentices, the programme runs for a minimum of 2 years. Those who come from a locksmith background will find a warm welcome but expect to be challenged – we want you to be at the top of your game and we will give you the resources to achieve this. General engineers and maintenance engineers – more than welcome. The basic work is detailed and painstaking, and mostly at the micro rather than the macro level. It may be for you – come and find out.
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
