In January we hosted a Careers Evening aimed at 14-19 year olds looking to understand a little more about Engineering, and other potential career paths once they leave school.

The aim of the evening was to show young people that we are an Employer of Choice within Banbury and that we are looking for technically minded electromechanical/software people to join us.

Our fantastic team made up of Engineers, both electronic and mechanical, supported by our Quality, Marketing and Procurement teams enthusiastically demonstrated product, and discussed potential career paths with students, potential apprentices and parents.  Our training provider - the Engineering Trust and the HR team were also on hand to guide prospective apprentices through the programme, its structure and benefits.

Our talented current apprentices, years 1 – 4 were also available throughout the evening to talk to parents and students, on what it’s really like being an apprentice and why they enjoy working for Norbar. And they do!

The results of the evening were fantastic – the feedback speaks volumes and we hope that the young people we met, went away with a clearer understanding of Norbar, our direction, engineering disciplines for the future and the investment we are prepared to make in developing people and product.

Thank you to a great team of people who gave up their evening to promote Norbar, an “Employer of Choice”.
