Short description

We are currently seeking enthusiastic and hardworking engineering apprentices to join our team of office based engineers at our Sutton in Ashfield location.

Full description

The world was a very different place when Abacus started trading in 1958. Manufacturing was the backbone of the British economy, a good salary for a senior engineer was £7 a week and if you drove a third-generation 37bhp Morris Minor, you were the envy of all your neighbours.

Wartime restrictions had plunged Britain's streets into darkness for well over six years; and even when the limitations were lifted in 1954, the state of street lighting left much to be desired. Indeed, much of it was still gas-powered. The government recognised that things needed to change; and a programme of improvement began. The major players at Abacus (or NORMID as we were then called) saw their opportunity and took it - and the design and manufacture of lighting columns and street furniture launched our name in the UK.

Working within the following areas:

· Manufacturing Engineering Office

· Production Control

· Production Support

· Purchasing & Supply

· Mechanical Design

· Electrical Design

Applicants will be required to attend an Assessment Centre with Vision Apprentices as part of the screening process.
