AIRDRIE-based Arvill Plant and Tool Hire has announced the appointment of two local apprentice mechanics.
Euan Wilson (16) and Andrew Peden (17), are both recent school leavers. Euan approached Arvill through his father, Andrew, who is one of the company’s customers, having developed an interest in mechanics and motorbikes doing casual work for a local garage. Andrew, meanwhile, approached Arvill directly after doing volunteer work with a local waste management company.
Amy Monaghan, administrative director at Arvill said, “We are looking to expand our business and hiring apprentices like Euan and Andrew assists that process. By developing their enthusiasm and hard work into highly-regarded skills we secure both their careers and our company’s future success.
“Good apprentices are hard to find, and I’m very impressed with the eagerness to learn both Euan and Andrew are showing. Both young men are hard-working, enthusiastic, and diligent. I can see them having a long and successful career within our growing Arvill family. They’ll finish their training programme with qualifications, experience and a good job ahead of them.”
Euan and Andrew are enrolled in a Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) programme and are undergoing a 3-year Modern Apprenticeship course with three 6-week attachments to the National Construction College in Glasgow.
