Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2022

During National Apprentice Week 2022, we are shining the spotlight on the members of our team who came to us over the years as apprentices and celebrating what they have achieved so far. We have had 9 staff members join us at an apprentice level, with 8 of them continuing with us after the completion of their apprentices.

Our longest serving former apprentice is Rebecca Prince, who joined Bartco UK as a Business Administration apprentice in 2015 and quickly progressed in the company to her current role as Purchasing and Stock Control Supervisor. Working alongside Bec in Purchasing and Stock Control is Pip Wood, who joined the Bartco UK team in early 2019 as an apprentice. Pip is extremely dedicated to her skills development, taking on fire warden and manual handling training during her apprenticeship.

Also starting in 2015 was George Sheldon, who joined us as an apprentice after studying Electrical Engineering. George has since completed his level 3 apprenticeship in 2019, seeing him progress within the company to the role of Senior Workshop Technician with fellow former apprentice, Cain.

Since joining our apprenticeship programme in 2017, Cain Gregory has come on leaps and bounds professionally during his time here and has recently completed his apprenticeship. In an effort to further his skills, he has recently completed CAD training and is currently doing a supervisor training course. We were so impressed initially with Cain’s talent and work ethic during his work experience that we very quickly asked him to stay.

Our most recent apprentice is Jacob Spencer, who is in year 1 of his Technical Apprenticeship. In a similar fashion to Cain, Jacob quickly impressed us with his amazing work ethic and attitude. Jacob is perfectly suited to his role with us, allowing him to stay busy doing what he loves.

Anne Ashman, UK Group Commercial and Operations Director comments, “all the apprentices that have come through either MVIS or Bartco UK’s doors have been given the encouragement and space to develop their skills. We cannot recommend the recruitment of apprentices enough to employers looking for hard working and dedicated individuals.”

MVIS and Bartco UK want to take this opportunity to thank our apprentices, both past and present, for all their hard work.
