ENGINEERING company ENGIE Fabricom has invested in a new apprentice recruitment programme which has seen it take on eight new apprentices.

The business – which has offices in Stokesley and Middlesbrough - has worked alongside both Middlesbrough College and North Lindsey college in the Humber to develop a process to attract new workers.

It involved candidates carrying out in-depth at assessments at Middlesbrough College’s state of the art £100m STEM centre facilities

Richard Webster, CEO, said: “We have recognised that traditional recruitment processes are not suitable for appointing apprentices and it is really important that we take on the right people suited to the engineering construction industry that will really thrive with the correct training methods."
