A specialist in Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) service installations with experience working with some of the country’s most well-known construction companies, Arc-Tech has maintained a focus on youth employment, skills replenishment and training since the company’s formation in 2016.
Over 150 personnel are directly employed by the business with a total of 28 apprenticeships delivered over the seven-year period, 100% of whom have been retained as full-time employees.
Arc-Tech’s new recruits, aged 16 and above, will join the business in August when they will begin a 4-year, industry-recognised programme to become qualified heating engineers, plumbers and electricians. Their experience will involve a mix of applied theory undertaken at college as well as working on-site with the latter providing the means to earn while learning.
To celebrate the announcement, John Gallacher, Arc-Tech (Scotland) Managing Director, met up with some of the businesses’ existing apprentices – Kier McKechnie (20) and Finn McCarte (22) – in Clydebank where the firm is currently supporting Kier Construction with the multi-million-pound refurbishment of the Golden Jubilee Hospital.
“It gives me great pleasure to announce our seventh annual apprentice intake at the very place I began my own apprenticeship. Alan and I know the value of an apprenticeship and we hope that by standing here, alongside Kier and Finn, we have motivated more young people to choose a career in the Scottish construction industry.
“Our business is built on strong foundations because of our commitment to youth employment and we look forward to welcoming our new recruits this coming August.”< back
