Banbury-based company hosts virtual open evenings for latest engineering apprenticeships job openings

18 Jan, 2022 | Return|

Banbury-based tools manufacturer Norbar Torque Tools Ltd is hosting a series of virtual careers evenings in February for young people potentially interested in two  engineering apprenticeships on offer.



Following the success of last year’s virtual events, the company intends to showcase the opportunities for apprentices through online sessions in order to maintain social distancing as the Covid-19 situation continues.


Coinciding with National Apprenticeship Week 2022, the open evenings will be taking place on the 7, 8, 9, and 10 February and attendees will be able to books slots between 6pm and 8pm to be able to discuss the job roles virtually with Norbar’s Head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and Rob Alderman from the Engineering Trust.


On top of this, video tours of the Norbar manufacturing facilities will be available to offer insight into a modern manufacturing facility and the opportunities available for apprenticeship applicants.


While concerns over youth unemployment persist, Norbar 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.”
