Denca Apprentices: Empowering Young Local Talent

Denca Apprentices - Class of '23

Denca is continuing its commitment to fostering local talent and strengthening community ties. This year, we are proud to reinforce our focus on youth development by introducing our five-strong, class of ’23. Our apprenticeship scheme is more than just a hiring initiative. It is a testament to the company’s dedication to building a sustainable future. Therefore, we invest in the skills and potential of young individuals within our local community. 

Denca Apprentices – Local Impact: Nurturing Growth in Our Backyard 

We recognise the importance of contributing to the local economy. Our apprenticeships serve as a catalyst for job creation. They provide meaningful employment opportunities for young talent right here in our home town and surroundings. Not only do we want to bolster economic growth but also the knock-on effect of positive change. Enriching the lives of individuals and families nearby is a welcome bonus. 

Skills for Success: Shaping Careers, Not Just Jobs 

Our programme challenges traditional training methods. By experiencing all our technical departments across the business, we encourage each recruit to find their own home within the company. Our comprehensive approach is aimed at equipping participants with the skills necessary to thrive in any of our working landscapes. As a result of this focus on skills development, we are not merely filling positions. We are also preparing apprentices for long-lasting and successful careers. 

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Anon  

With this philosophy in mind, it is important for us that we don’t make any attempts to mould someone into a shape that doesn’t fit. Individuals should get the opportunity to find what most aligns with their own skills and ambitions. We find that when this is achieved it translates into a long and fruitful career. To this day we have apprentices that started with Denca in 2002 that are now in senior management positions and we’re seeing this trend continue as the years progress. 

Building Futures: From Apprentices to Industry Professionals 

As apprentices embark on their career paths, Denca is excited to witness their growth into industry professionals, innovators, and integral contributors to both our organisation and the local community. The goal is not only to provide a job but to empower individuals to build a future they can be proud of. 

We want to extend our warmest welcome to the newest members of our team and wish them well in what is sure to be a long and fruitful career if our other Denca Alumni are a benchmark to go by. If you or someone close to you is looking to begin their journey in industry, please get in touch
