Filtermist Apprentices learning skills for life

One of the ways in which Filtermist supports the development of new talent is by employing Apprentices. Filtermist appreciates the fresh perspective Apprentices can bring to the business and recognises that the skills learnt during Apprenticeship programmes will be invaluable throughout their careers.

Filtermist partners with In-Comm Training, which recently officially opened the new location of The Marches Centre of Manufacturing & Technology (MCMT) - a training centre on Filtermist’s doorstep at the Telford 54 Business Park. The state-of-the-art facility boasts the very latest in engineering technologies, including Filtermist oil mist filters, installed on many of its machine tools to ensure the Apprentices are benefitting from a clean and safe working environment.

“With a shortage of manufacturing skills in the UK, Filtermist has always invested in developing employees through the business. Apprenticeships are an ideal springboard to ensure we have the highly trained workforce we’ll need for future growth,” said Jo Morris, Filtermist’s Director of Shared Services.

The theme of this year’s UK National Apprenticeship Week is ‘Skills for Life’ which our very own Apprentices have been benefitting from in their training.

Watch our Apprentices talk about life at Filtermist and learning skills-for-life through their Apprenticeships watch here.

Will Finan - Welding Apprentice

“I like working at Filtermist because everyone seems like a genuine person, they have a lot of up-to-date equipment and it’s a positive working environment.”​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Ashlee Salvin – Manufacturing Apprentice

“I’m an older Apprentice and I think a lot of people come out of school or college and they don’t really have a lot of direction of where they want to go. This was the position I was in, but I’ve found what I want to do through my Apprenticeship, and what I do I really enjoy so I think it’s a really good opportunity.”

Georgia Ball – Design Engineering Apprentice

“I chose a career in engineering as it was a good opportunity to be able to apply my skills such as problem solving, leadership and technical development. As a woman in engineering, I haven’t had any challenges. Everyone has been really nice and supportive both in training and in the workplace.”
