Fuchs HR executive Susanne McClurg said (www.fuchs.com
): “We are very proud of the people who have already passed — and those currently working towards — their apprenticeships.
“The great thing about our apprenticeships is that when the young people have completed them, the training and education continues.
“We are committed to continuing to develop the individuals and the results are there for all to see.
“It’s a win-win situation. For Fuchs, it is part of our succession planning, creating the next generation of specialists and allowing them to tap into the knowledge of our existing workforce.
“For the apprentices themselves, it is a fantastic career opportunity. When you walk around their working environments, you see young people assuming responsibility with the ambition and the drive to progress.”
