Birmingham-based Precision Micro
, a photochemical etching specialist, has announced that it will offer its highest-ever number of apprenticeship placements this autumn.
Located at Fort Dunlop with a 44,000ft2
manufacturing plant, Precision Micro will take on 10 new apprentices this year, more than trebling the number of available apprenticeship placements from its typical annual intake of two or three places.
The four-year apprenticeships are open to students between 16 and 21, and will provide successful applicants with a holistic experience across all of its business departments, from technical and maintenance, to sales and marketing, as well as providing apprentices with the unique skills required to create the precision parts it manufactures.
Precision Micro supplies components to a wide range of industries, providing products for everything from life-saving surgery to Formula One racing, space exploration, luxury cars and more. The business has a long history of recruiting young local talent, with many success stories within the business, including director and co-owner Mick Taylor, who began as an apprentice over 30 years ago.
Following tan investment of over £5 million into its production plant, Precision Micro has recently expanded its manufacturing capacity by 10%, creating job opportunities for local people.
Nikki Squire, HR manager at Precision Micro, said: “As a specialist manufacturer, the contribution apprentices make to our business is invaluable. We are delighted to be able to offer so many young people the chance to begin a rewarding career at the cutting-edge of precision manufacturing, in what is an incredibly exciting time for the company.”
