Delkia has four apprentices and has announced it will take on at least two more apprentices, one a degree level apprentice, in 2023. ‘This is part of our commitment to growing the next generation of employees’ said Kurt Canfield, CEO, ‘We want to give opportunities to talented young people in the communities in which we are based, and apprenticeships are a great way to do this.’
The range of Delkia apprenticeships now in place illustrates the rich opportunities this route can offer. Hayden, for example, is completing a degree-level Project Management apprenticeship which sees him spend four days a week in the office and one day at the University of Cumbria. Hayden gained A Levels in Maths, History and Physics at West Lakes Academy and then chose to pursue a Project Management degree apprenticeship as: ‘I wanted to get a qualification and first-hand experience in the workplace.’ He chose Delkia because: ‘I liked the way the company worked. Everyone’s view is listened to, and I have the freedom to make a difference.’
Sophie also joined Delkia after completing her A Levels at West Lakes Academy in English Language, Geography and Business (for which she got a Distinction). ‘I had always wanted to do HR, it’s a challenge I wanted to pursue.’ says Sophie, who was attracted to apply by the way Delkia’s apprenticeship offered a hands-on way to learn and earn.
Leisha, completing a Business Support Administration apprenticeship, is the friendly face of our Westlakes .
HQ Reception. Leisha’s role entails many things: ‘It is endless really – parts of HR, finance, phone calls… I support across all the platforms.’ It is this variety that she enjoys: ‘you never know what you will be faced with and develop skills as you go along.’
Jack joined Delkia as an Electrical Engineering Apprentice and his goal is to complete a degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering as part of his apprenticeship. Jack says the best thing about his job is that ‘every day is different.’
All of Delkia’s apprentices make a big contribution to the continued success of Delkia as it continues to grow rapidly.
