BALDWINS Repair Group is holding an apprentice showcase day as a recruitment drive.
It wants to employ two people who are passionate about vehicles and the motor industry, and will make them multi-skilled vehicle accident repair apprentices via the event at its Corby repair centre on Saturday, June 9.
The award-winning accident repairer is working in partnership with industry charity AutoRaise to bridge the skills gap that the industry is currently facing and to invest time and effort in the future employability of young people.
Showcase attendees will be able to find out what the apprenticeship involves, meet the Baldwins team plus past apprentices and partners, and see demonstrations. They will also be able to enter competitions and try their hand at using a spray paint gun, rubbing down filler, stripping and refitting a bumper, plus more.
Peter Randhawa, group general manager at Baldwins, said: ‘We are true advocates of apprenticeships and we are committed to offering young people great opportunities within the vehicle repair industry.
‘We realise the accident repair industry needs new blood and we’re committed to attracting into the industry enthusiastic individuals with new ideas, the passion to learn and the desire to succeed.
‘As new technologies are continually coming into play and vehicles are transforming rapidly, it really is an exciting and interesting time to be part of the accident repair industry.’
