Norbar Torque Tools Ltd is opening its doors to two new apprentices.
The Banbury-based business, which manufactures tools for rail as well as a wealth of other industries, is holding virtual careers evenings in February for young people interested in the roles.
It follows two successful events last year – with these upcoming evenings being virtual to help people maintain social distancing.
The open evenings will be taking place on the 17, 18, 19, and 20 January and attendees will be able to books slots between 6pm and 8pm to be able to discuss the job roles online with Norbar’s Head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and Rob Alderman from the Engineering Trust.
Furthermore, video tours of the Norbar manufacturing facilities will be available to offer insight into a facility and the opportunities available for apprenticeship applicants.
While concerns over youth unemployment persist, Norbar says it is demonstrating its commitment to developing young people’s skills in the Banbury area and to urge them to consider a career in manufacturing and engineering.
Wanda said: “The pandemic has made the job market a tougher environment than ever for young people. For manufacturers like us, it is extremely important that we do everything we can to equip young people with the skills to progress in their career. Though Covid-19 continues to make in-person events unfeasible, we still hope to give all of the advice and information to attendees hoping to go into engineering through these virtual events.”
