The Omega Group has recruited five new engineering apprentices to secure its future workforce needs.

Luke McMorris, Justin Fairburn and Dan Gray have been enlisted as apprentices to bolster Omega’s tool making team, whilst Adam Cook and Jordan Dale will be taking up production apprenticeships at the company’s Washington site.

Adam and Jordan hail from South Shields and Gateshead respectively. Luke, Dan and Justin come from Hartlepool, Cramlington and Ashington.

Luke, Dan and Justin will continue their studies at Hartlepool and Northumberland Colleges during their three-year apprenticeships, whilst Adam and Jordan will complete their apprenticeships before pursuing careers in manufacturing as part of the Signal Plastics team, which is now part of the Omega Group.

Committed to the future

The Omega Group formed from the recent partnership between Omega Plastics and Signal Plastics. The Group has a track record of developing apprenticeships which equip young people with industry recognised NVQ Level 3 qualifications.

Offering services and technical expertise to automotive, medical devices, electronics, biotech and FMCG customers, the company has moved to secure new talent as part of its commitment to investing in improving its skills base.

Dave Crone, Omega Group managing director commented: “Luke, Dan, Justin, Jordan and Adam will gain important skills while they are with us as well as bringing new ideas, creativity and youthful enthusiasm to the workforce.

“Apprenticeships aren’t just for the larger companies. They are a cost-effective way for smaller, highly specialised firms like us to train the workforce to a high standard and make the business more competitive.”

Apprentice Adam Cook added: “I’ve always been a practical person and I’m good with my hands. I was looking to get a job that would allow me to learn a trade, and this fitted the bill perfectly.

Apprenticeships give you the chance to study for qualifications that are valued by employers – and you earn a wage at the same time. I really would recommend them to any young person who is not sure which career option to take.”
