Fifth Wheel extends Apprenticeship scheme
Following the success of its Apprenticeship scheme last year, Rhuallt based tourer and caravan manufacturer Fifth Wheel Company is recruiting two more Apprentices.
The company is searching for young people to join the growing business as manufacturing Apprentices following the appointment of four Apprentices last year.
This year’s cohort of Apprentices will be trained in all aspects of assembling and fitting out a range of modern tourers and caravan units, plus they will earn a Level 2 NVQ qualification in manufacturing as part of their on-the-job training.
Adrian Parry- Jones, Sales Director at Fifth Wheel, said: “Last year we launched our Apprenticeship scheme as we wanted to give local young people the opportunity to get hands-on experience, gain a qualification as well as earning a wage at the same time.
“We hired four Apprentices last year and they are all now really thriving within the company.
“Due to the success of the scheme, we are looking to appoint two more Apprentices. We are looking for hard-working and motivated young people who want to kick start their manufacturing career.”
Lee Evans, 18, from Kimmel Bay, started his manufacturing Apprenticeship at Fifth Wheel 12 months ago.
He said: “I decided to do the Apprenticeship as I wanted to gain more practical skills in manufacturing. It is very hands-on so I have learnt so much and it has really improved my confidence.
“I think an Apprenticeship is the best way to learn a trade like manufacturing as you combine real work experience with studying, which makes you fully prepared for the world of work.”
The Apprentices will work four days a week at Fifth Wheel Company’s main factory in Rhuallt and one day training at Llandrillo College in Rhos-on-Sea.
