Stone based Capula has taken in its highest number of young recruits over the last few weeks.
In line with its planned growth strategy, the intake of 15 includes 7 graduates, 1 apprentice, 5 trainees and 2 industrial placement students.
All five of Capula’s business streams will have recruits training, as well as its central services team, under the mentorship and direction of time-served engineers and technical experts. All new recruits at the Stone Business Park based company are encouraged to progress and reach their potential through a mix of on-the-job training and theoretical learning at nearby award-winning establishments Newcastle under Lyme College and Staffordshire University where they will undertake apprenticeship or foundation degree courses prior to completing their final degrees.
Sally Parker, who joined as a Junior Engineer in Capula’s IT department commented, “I’m really pleased to be joining Capula and begin the next step in my career. I’m excited to have been given an opportunity to develop a wide variety of skills including software development and cyber security skills in real-life situations.”
New starters will automatically be enrolled on the Imtech Graduate & Trainee Development Programme as Capula is part of the Imtech Group. The group provides an opportunity to learn and develop leadership qualities and soft skills alongside colleagues from Imtech’s other nationwide businesses. All employees also benefit from Capula’s corporate partnership status with both the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IET) and the Chartered Institute for IT (BSC) which means they will be supported and encouraged to achieve professional accreditations to Chartered Engineering or Chartered IT Professional status.
“We are delighted to welcome this intake of young people,” commented Steve Tellwright, HR Director at Capula. “Our training programmes for graduates, apprentices, trainees and industrial placement students, provide a solid foundation upon which they can build skills and knowledge required to become skilled professionals and experts in their chosen field.”
