After months of searching Multihog based in Hoddlesden, near Darwen have successfully recruited their first ever Plant Maintenance Apprentice to assist with machine servicing and maintenance for their ever expanding fleet of innovative multi-purpose implement carriers.
Newly recruited Apprentice Daniel Fradd, aged 22 from Darwen was chosen from a raft of applications, recruited in partnership with the Employer Services Team at Myerscough College. Daniel will now over the next three years work toward Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications in Plant Maintenance as part of his Apprenticeship delivered on block release at the college main site near Preston.
Daniel is delighted to be given this opportunity, saying; “I was really pleased to be offered this Apprenticeship. Other Apprenticeships seem to only offer a limited scope whereas at Multihog it’s clear they are planning for the future and I really want to be part of that. I hope this is the start of a long career with the company.”
Daniel will be working alongside the full time Technical Engineer Ben Fury helping to maintain the ever expanding fleet of vehicles at a variety of locations including Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport, Glasgow City Council and Newcastle Airport to name a few. It will be a varied role and one Daniel is really looking forward to.
Operations and Compliance Manager John Carter is equally excited about Daniel joining Multihog saying; “We have tried for nearly a year to source a suitable Apprenticeship scheme. The team at Myerscough listed to our needs and have assisted us every step of the way. Then less than two months later we have Daniel. In an expanding business we see Apprenticeships as a way of building our workforce for the future. Hopefully Daniel is the first of many Apprentices to come.”
