Real careers to be showcased in virtual setting

Norbar Torque Tools hosting on-line engineering apprenticeships evenings for young people 

Banbury-based tools manufacturer Norbar Torque Tools is hosting a series of virtual careers evenings in February for young people potentially interested in two engineering apprenticeships on offer.

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.

Four evenings up for grabs

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 discuss the job roles virtually with Norbar’s head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and Rob Alderman from the Engineering Trust.

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.

“While concerns over youth unemployment persist, Norbar is demonstrating its commitment to developing young people’s skills in the Banbury area and to urge them to consider a career in manufacturing and engineering,” states the company

Open window on engineering

Comments Stewart-Lee: “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.”
