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.
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 virtually with Norbar’s Head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and Rob Alderman from the Bicester-based Engineering Trustm which has been delivering work based apprenticeships in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties for more than 25 years.
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.
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.”
