AJE continues commitment to young people
AJ Engineering has continued its commitment to inspiring young people by getting involved in the Career Ready scheme.
Career Ready is a national charity which was founded in 2002. It has a network of employers and educators who all believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to kick-start a rewarding future.
At the moment, AJ Engineering has given a work experience and mentoring placement to a young student who will learn all about the world of work.
Company director, Graham Alexander said: “Creating work placements and being able to take on young people to give them experience of the work place has become a bit more complicated due to the Covid pandemic. More employees are working from home and some companies simply do not have the space to be able to take on a young person. However, AJ engineering was approached by Career Ready and we are lucky to enough to be able to help someone.”
Graham added: “AJ Engineering’s ethos has always been about encouraging young people, for example, we have superb apprenticeship and training programmes. We have just taken on two new apprentices at NEWCo in Fort William and last month we had five new trainees start with us at AJE. The Career Ready scheme really mirrors what we believe in as a company.
Find out more next month about the placement.
