ENGIE Fabricom attend North East Lincolnshire Skills Fair 2018

By | apprenticeships, Corporate News, Exhibitions/Seminars, News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom recently attended the annual North East Lincolnshire Skills Fair, held at Grimsby Auditorium. The Skills Fair is the largest skills and careers event in North East Lincolnshire and aims to inspire young people to make decisions regarding their future career and the skills they will need.

Approximately 1,600 year 10 students attended the event over the course of the day, visiting from 14 local academies/learning centres.

ENGIE Fabricom was situated in the dedicated STEM village alongside other local engineering companies like Orsted, BAE Systems and British Steel.  Graduate Engineers, Ellis Jacklin and Rebecca Procter and Year 3 Apprentices Adam Whall and Jake Brand were on hand to give the students tips and advice on career paths into engineering.

The theme of this years’ Skills Fair was ‘Have a Go’ and exhibitors were encouraged to make their displays interactive.

ENGIE Fabricom held a competition where students competed against each other to see who could dress themselves in overalls, welding gloves and a welding mask the fastest.  The winner was rewarded with a box of chocolates.

Kye Pearce, Apprentice Welder and A Success!

By | apprenticeships | No Comments

3rd Year Apprentice Welder

Based at our Sotherby Road facility (Middlesbrough) Kye stands out for a number of reasons.

Kye’s physical presence is the first thing you will notice – he is a ‘big lad’, but he certainly is not intimidating. Quiet by nature this young man has found his calling – he is a natural welder.

Unfazed by anything we have asked him to do, he volunteered to work away from home to gain experience at the ‘sharp end’, working on a time bound ‘turnaround’ on a leading Oil and Gas company refinery.

After 2 weeks in this high pressure, delivery based environment, Kye came away with glowing recommendations and a zero weld repair rate, not bad for an apprentice. But it’s not only his performance that makes Kye a success, it’s his attitude, his desire to learn, his willingness to listen and his ambition to be the best he can.

In a recent routine appraisal Kye scored an unprecedented 49/55, going over and above requirements in 9 out of 11 categories and meeting requirements in the remaining 2.

Kye initially attracted interest from us back in 2013 when he was first interviewed for an apprenticeship with the company, what stood out for the interview panel was that Kye had voluntary attended his training school (NETA Stockton) for the past 12 months to learn engineering. The school, located 14 miles from his home address was a daily bus journey starting at 7.30am every morning.  This attitude and an eye to learn and advance, in his now chosen profession of welding is credit to Kye and all the hard work and commitment he has shown.

A great story not only for Kye but for his employer’s ENGIE Fabricom.

Nuclear Training Programme – Track 11 Boarding Day in Paris

By | apprenticeships | No Comments

Three of our Nuclear graduates attend the annual Nuclear Training Programme Track 11 Boarding Day in Paris.

Stuart Dunn and Jordan McGovan from Fabricom Offshore Services along with Lewis Humphrey from our Consultancy, Engineering Design Office at Grimsby attended the event with Yvonne Day, our Resources & Development Director UK.

The program, run by ENGIE is for 1 year and includes more than 1400 hours of training in France and Belgium, in all aspects of nuclear energy, with priority given to safety, covering production, maintenance, fuel and waste management, decommissioning, and more.

Yvonne Day commented: “This is not a program for the faint hearted, it has examination based modules and needs a great deal of personal hours as well to be able to succeed. It is a real commitment by these individuals who now follow the others who have successfully completed the program.  The candidates will also become part of the wider ENGIE Nuclear network community and our businesses fully support this development as part of their CPD.

We wish them every success in the future.”
