At the Air Systems Group, we believe that our young members of staff are the key to promoting a healthier business. The group currently employs 22 members of staff, 5 of which are apprentices. The apprentices have all worked exceptionally hard within their areas over the past year, exceeding expectations. Each of them has brought a new set of views and are always focusing on the development of the group.
We recently entered the Shropshire Business Awards 2013 for the apprentice of the year category. Providing them with a short summary of how the apprentices have helped our business, how they have developed themselves and a little information about our company.
Rose (21) joined us to complete a level 3 advanced apprenticeship in Business and Administration. She has helped transform the company’s online presence, and excelled in the development and marketing side of the business.
Josh (19) joined us after struggling to find work for over 7 months. He is currently working on completing a level 2 apprenticeship in manufacturing. Today he is a confident youngster, engaged in projects fat in advance of what we would have expected.
Rob (26) joined the group last year after being out of work for sometime, and almost having given up on finding a job. The transformation in his life has been wonderful to see, not only has he brought his first house but is getting married. At work he had grown in character and is already capable of carrying out all of our manufacturing operations.
We attended the Shropshire Business Awards on Friday 14th June with special guest speak Tanni Grey-Thompson. The nominations for the Apprentice of the year were: Dyke Yaxley Chartered Accountants, Reech Media Group Limited, DENSO Manufacturing UK Ltd and The Air Systems Group. We are proud to announce that we won the award for Apprentice of the Year and had a brilliant time at the award ceremony.
