Sandon Global, an award-winning manufacturing company based in Runcorn, is celebrating a successful five-year partnership with Riverside College as they recruit their sixteenth apprentice within the last five years.
Sandon Global are looking forward to recruiting a new Business Administration Apprentice as they continue to invest in their growing team. Nine of their successful apprentices were also joined by two existing engineers to complete their HNC in Engineering at the College last year.
The company currently employs six Engineering Apprentices who attend Riverside College one day a week as they begin their engineering careers with the growing company.
Janine Barnett, HR Director, said, “Sandon Global has worked closely with the College for a number of years and has recognised the importance of apprenticeships in developing their workforce. They have been able to offer a significant number of our students opportunities that will lead them to long-term careers in the sector. They are a key partner to us and we hope to continue building on this relationship into the future.”
Jayne Smith, Head of Skills and Enterprise, said, “It has been brilliant developing our partnership with Sandon Global. They are a sector-leading organisation, and their new state-of-the-art facilities in Runcorn ensure that apprentices have fantastic opportunities to develop their careers using the latest technology. We look forward to developing this further and helping to grow their talented workforce.”
