Hopefield Fab – industry leaders in producing metal bar tops, over bar glass racks, under-counter units and decorative metalwork – are on the lookout for new apprentices to join their firm.
Hopefield Fab Ltd recently obtained Master Craftsman status. The Guild of Master Craftsmen is the UK’s most established trade association “representing skilled and rated tradesman, craftspeople, artisans and other professionals who strive for excellence in workmanship.” This, in addition to the management team having over 80 years’ experience; makes them the ideal traders to learn from.
The company currently employs three apprentices: Corey Salisbury (16), Jake Sawden (19) and Dion Davies (18) – all attending Alliance Learning Centre, Horwich.
Gary McClung, Managing Director of Hopefield Fab Limited, commented:
“We understand that we provide a one of a kind service and we are keen to share what we do with budding fabricators. We have enjoyed having the lads here doing their apprenticeships so it’s something we want to continue doing. We provide a service that is exciting, interesting and unique so it’s good for youngsters to be given the opportunity to experience a career that they might not otherwise have considered or thought about.”
To work at Hopefield Fab Ltd, apprentices must show initiative and will learn throughout their apprenticeship to have the ability to work out the cost of production, how to match designer’s expectations, and nurture their creativity.
“I would recommend working for Hopefield Fab to any budding apprentice. No two days are the same and you meet a lot of different people! We work on quite high-profile clients as well which I really enjoy. There is also the bonus of working with a fantastic team who really support you and want you to do well.”
