Appris welcome ActionPlas

We’re delighted to welcome another member to the Appris family. ActionPlas is a Pudsey based business who specialise in CNC machining plastic products for the UK and European markets. Drawing upon Appris’ experience and knowledge, we’ve worked together to recruit superb new apprenticeship talent for their business. These new engineering technicians will start their 4 year journey, on the new Machinist apprenticeship standard, with us in September.

This September we’re introducing an apprenticeship scheme that aims to recruit the next generation of engineers. Working closely with Appris, a Bradford-based charity organisation dedicated to providing specialist apprenticeship training for young people, we’re looking to recruit three Level 3 apprentices that will work in our CNC Milling, Turning and Fabrication & Routing departments.

“We’re really excited about investing in our local economy and to be able to create these brilliant opportunities for young Yorkshire residents entering the local workforce,” said Chris Wray, managing director at ActionPlas.

“We are enjoying fantastic success following recent investment in facilities, staff and machinery, with huge demand for our innovative products so this is the perfect opportunity for anyone with determination, talent and enthusiasm. We can help to build new careers while ensuring our customers continue to enjoy a high-quality service.”

Kenny Stoddart, Operations Director at Appris said: “It’s fantastic that a leading Yorkshire-based manufacturer, such as ActionPlas, is offering apprenticeships to the local community – it’s a fantastic way to future proof their workforce and for young people to see there are alternative routes to finding a skilled and rewarding career in engineering and manufacturing.”

“Engineering plays a vital role in driving the UK economy and the demand for qualified engineers is well recognised by employers, the engineering profession and the government.”

We’ve already attracted excellent candidates from local comprehensive school and sixth form, Pudsey Grangefield School. If you’re a determined, talented and enthusiastic individual with an interest in developing a career in engineering, you can register here: www.appris.co.uk/apprenticeships.
