Carfulan Group on the lookout for new apprentices24 June 2020

A South Derbyshire engineering specialist has reiterated its confidence in the skills of local youngsters by launching a search for a clutch of new apprentices.

The Carfulan Group says that it is on the lookout for its next batch of talented and enthusiastic candidates, who must be able to work alongside its team of experienced engineering professionals to support customers in real-world scenarios.

Those that successfully complete the three-year Engineering Apprenticeship programme can expect to be offered a permanent role within the group’s service, sales or applications teams, each of which is dedicated to providing solutions that help businesses to improve production performance.

Carfulan Group MD Matt Fulton says: “For the past three decades we’ve been providing technologies that optimise performance at every stage of the manufacturing process, empowering businesses across multiple sectors to make the best products they possibly can, in the most efficient way available.

“That focus on working smarter has intensified during the Coronavirus crisis, with almost all UK firms forced to rethink their strategies to ensure they will be fit for purpose moving forward. We have been far from unaffected, but our passion for innovation has led to the introduction of a fresh business model where we can now be confident of continued growth.

“We’ve been blessed in the past with some extremely dedicated apprentices who are now forging successful careers with us, so we have high expectations of the next set. We’re looking for people with strong GCSE grades in the core subjects who stand out from the crowd.”

Across four divisions – OGP UK, SYS Systems, ZOLLER UK and VICIVISION UK – the Foston-based Carfulan Group’s work covers supplying and servicing for multi-sensor inspection equipment, 3D printing and tool pre-setting and measurement, as well as turned-part measurement solutions. Its workforce has more than doubled since 2013 and it now provides services for more than 700 customers.
