Developing The Future
As one of the original companies to receive the Investors in People accreditation Chem Resist is an organisation that always looks to the potential of its staff as a direct indicator of the business opportunities. As a result, Chem Resist is extremely proud to have successfully recruited a number of new Fabrication Engineers and provided development opportunities in some key positions to a number of its staff.
- Zak Knowles joined as a junior apprentice fabrication engineer and is progressing well through our internal training school, supported by our “on the job” mentoring system
- Ryan Holdsworth a more mature trainee has chosen a change of direction in his career; previously from a steel fabrication background he has also made a successful transition into our fabrication team.
- Joe Rhodes epitomises the long term development opportunities we hope to provide within Chem Resist. Joining Chem Resist as an apprentice within our fabrication team at the age of 16, Joe developed into a highly respected senior fabricator. When an opportunity arose within our Project Managment team, Joe now 28, successfully applied for the position and is progressing extremely quickly within his new role.
- Dave Turver again joined us as a more mature trainee having also come from a Steel Fabrication background and very quickly adapted his skills to the change in fabrication techniques required in our business. In addition Dave showed significant interest in supporting functions within the business and once again, when an opportunity arose for a Production Manager Dave successfully applied for the role and is now engaging fully in a new challenge within our very strong Production Management Team.
As a business that requires specific skills not widely available through the conventional routes it is imperative that we continue to invest in our people who contrary to the cliché are our biggest assets.
It is our continued focus in the development of staff that significantly enhances our products and puts the company in a very strong position to create new opportunities.
