Charlotte joined the Bradford-based company's 'advanced apprenticeship programme' which will help her to become a fully qualified electrical engineer.
To help their apprentices get the best training possible, Mansfield Pollard works with Appris and Building Engineering Services Training (BEST) for delivering Engineering Manufacture apprenticeships and Refrigeration, Electrical Engineering and Fabrication & Welding, respectively.
"I am really excited to be beginning my working life with Mansfield Pollard. The company has demonstrated a strong commitment to developing its staff and I’m looking forward to being part of the team. To be I was surprised to learn that only 7% of people working in the UK engineering sector are women, so I hope that more girls will consider becoming apprentices.”
“We are always looking for young recruits who have energy, enthusiasm, commitment, a great work ethic, and an ability to work in a team.
"Charlotte ticks all of these boxes and she is in the vanguard of what we hope will be a wave of young females joining this company, and others in the industry.”
