Showcasing skills in Westminster!

We've been to Westminster recently to showcase our skills to MP's.

Adam Jowitt, an apprentice electrical engineer from our Carlton site, and Bethan Priest a graduate from our training programme attended a Food and Drinks Federation (FDF) hosted event in the Houses of Parliament this week. The event was organised to show MP’s the impressive strides the food industry has made to address skills shortage, whilst providing quality employment and training opportunities, and to bring to life what the industry has to offer young people at the beginning of their career. Adam and Bethan spoke with a number of MP’s about their experiences of working in the food industry and impressed them with their knowledge. Adam is just 4 weeks away from completing his 4 year electrical engineering apprenticeship with Premier Foods after which he will become a fully qualified engineer, saying, “I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship and learnt a lot about engineering. A highlight was going to Germany to be trained on the new Schubert packing line which I was involved in commissioning when it was installed in Carlton in 2011’. Before joining Premier Foods, Bethan completed an engineering degree at Loughborough University. As part of her graduate training programme she has worked in many areas of the business including; planning, engineering, divestments, production & reduction of Hovis supply chain loss and now holds the position of Supply Chain Co-ordinator for M&S. Bethan said; "On the rotational scheme I discovered roles which I previously never knew existed. Having the opportunity to 'sample' these allowed me to understand more about the Supply Chain & also more about what I wanted to do going forwards." Well done to both employees for taking part.
