Space Engineering Services has welcomed nine new apprentices from around the UK following a comprehensive selection process.  

George Kavanagh, Sidney Copus, Alex Rice, Max King, Jake Parkins, James Murray, Rob Armour, Alex Lamb and Liam Cunningham have already begun the intensive two-year programme of learning and development .
They will be supported by training providers Cool Concerns and through a course-based learning programme delivered by Bath College. The apprentices will gain practical experience within multiple departments at Space Engineering Services, which is headquartered in Bristol and employs 750 people nationwide providing engineering services to retail, industrial and public-sector customers. This includes building and testing refrigeration plant at organisation’s manufacturing facility, designing a convenience store by producing schematics and CAD drawings, surveying live sites around the UK, technical triage of service calls and preventative maintenance of large-scale refrigeration plant. 

Mark Woods, Director of Space Engineering Services, said: “We recognise that learning and development can take many forms, which is why we have mentors to support the apprentices. Space Engineering Services employees Dave Vallender, Mark Peck, Kevin Seager and Stephen Callaghan all come from a technical background and have a passion for helping the next generation of engineers.

“Apprentices will gain a comprehensive insight into not only the industry, but how the business itself works too. Space Engineering Services was established by a group of engineers back in 1988, and 30 years later, its leadership team still has technical excellence at its core.”
