Young manufacturing company – Hindley Circuits – has added two new apprentices to its ranks as part of continued investment into the development of young local people. 

Based in Cramlington, the firm known for providing high quality electronic Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly services for a range of industrial products, continue to employ young people in the local area to support its long-term growth plans. The new apprentices, Callum Barnes and Adam Thorman, will receive the company’s full support during their apprenticeships and will benefit from an in-house fast track training program. 

Callum Barnes, 16, who is the youngest on his course, is currently undertaking a BTEC in Business at Newcastle College three days per week whilst working with the Materials Manager at Hindley for the remaining two days. Callum is currently looking at how the company can use automation to improve client experience in its construction and manufacturing projects. Adam Thorman is undertaking a work-based apprenticeship through TDR within Hindley’s Logistics department. 

Speaking about the company’s recent additions, Richard Whitehead, chief executive officer at Hindley Circuits said: “We are delighted to have added two local apprentices to our company to support with our long-term growth aspirations. We will fully support them both and look forward to helping them grow within our business. 

“It is an exciting time to be joining our company as we expand through organic growth and acquisition and I am sure the new apprentices will bring another dimension to what our company has to offer whilst gaining a foothold on the career ladder.”

A soon to be qualified Hindley apprentice, Amy Scott, has worked across the business and managed to gain valuable experience within stock transactions, inventory, shipping, stores and general administration. This is one success story of how Hindley is enabling young local people to gain business experience and grow within their business. 

Richard continued: “An important part of our growth is ensuring we make the correct investments at the right time and we believe the new apprentices will help the company to grow long term. We always strive to meet our client’s needs and develop our offering to suit so we always have a healthy pipeline of work and can continue to invest in our young people.” 

The company continually look to invest in training and development programs for its staff to ensure they are the best they can be, enabling the company to deliver the very highest quality and delivery standards, whilst growing the client base.
