22 September, 2021 by Tom Peace

On Monday 6th September, Briggs Equipment welcomed 8 new apprentice engineers to the 2021 Apprenticeship Scheme. This year, the scheme sees us welcome apprentices within our acquired businesses for the very first time.

The 2021 Briggs Equipment Apprentice Engineers are:

Joshua Crofts - The Pallet Network, Sutton Coldfield

Max Johnson - Vauxhall / Chester Field

Samuel Davies - Haydock Workshop

Raqeem Ramsden-Khan -  Wakefield Field

Freddie Crittenden - Doncaster Field

Robbie Prigg - Essex Field and Big Trucks

Dominic Barlow - Gwynedd Forklifts, Conway Workshop

Damian-Jai Trotman - Hitec, Wellingborough Workshop

All the apprentices are enrolled onto their Level 3 Lift Truck and Powered Access Engineering Technician Apprenticeship with F-tec, located in Swindon. F-tec specialise in forklift engineering training.

The Briggs Apprenticeships team, commented: “The Engineer Apprenticeship programme is crucial in helping us bringing through the next generation of engineering talent. At Briggs, we have a proud history of training and developing our people and providing them with the tools to succeed in their chosen career and a large portion of our Field Engineers completed an apprenticeship here.

“The 2021 cohort will receive expert guidance from our existing engineering teams and ongoing support from across the business. We are extremely excited to welcome them all to the programme and we look forward to seeing their development as part of the Briggs Equipment Group.”
