is seeking applicants for its apprenticeship programme — the company is planning to recruit 13 new apprentices and two trainees to start in September who are at least 16 years old.

Rick Franckeiss, learning and development manager, said: “I am delighted to confirm that Sheffield Forgemasters is investing in the recruitment of 13 apprentices and two trainee positions, starting in September 2021.
“This is very positive and encouraging news and offers significant career development for applicants who can demonstrate initiative and the dynamic to become high achievers with one of the country’s most advanced manufacturing businesses.”
Sheffield Forgemasters is a major employer in the Sheffield City Region, with 600 employees and an apprenticeships programme which makes up around 10% of the workforce at any one time.
Mr Franckeiss added: “Most of our apprentices remain with the company and many go on to further education after initial training, due to our continued investment in the development of our people.
“We consider apprentices to be the future leaders of the business and can proudly boast that our chief operating officer and board director, Gareth Barker, started out at Sheffield Forgemasters as an apprentice and worked his way up through the company to one of the most senior positions.”
