Manufacturing career opportunities unlocked for French students in YorkshireDecember 18, 2018A well established and leading Yorkshire manufacturer has welcomed a handful of French students to its production plant to showcase the career opportunities available.
Pegler, a manufacturer of Integrated Piping Systems and in conjunction with Business and Education Together, offered the opportunity to the students to highlight the opportunities and satisfaction that a career in manufacturing can bring.
“Manufacturing is so important to so many industries like ours and we are striving to communicate this message to young people to encourage them to choose manufacturing as a career,” said Phill Jackson Business Development and Marketing Director Pegler. “As part of a global group of companies it was a delight to be able to communicate our career and employment opportunities to students from France.”
During the three week placement the students worked in the tool shop, shadowed and assisted a Toolmaker and learnt other transferrable skills such as health and safety in the workplace and manual handling guidelines and procedures.
One student commented; “I thoroughly enjoyed see the manufacturing process and how raw materials are transferred to the finished product. I am now hoping to seek a career in the same industry and to the learn the required skills.”
Business and Education is a not-for-profit company which supports the young people of South Yorkshire in gaining valuable work experience and on this occasion worked with a South Yorkshire based company to fulfil an international request.
