This week, Sivert (17) started his two-year apprenticeship at Envirex after studying Industrial Technology at Bryne videregående. We already got to know Sivert a little when he had a one-week apprenticeship at Envirex earlier this year and now we are happy to have him on board on a full-time basis!
Corporate social responsibility is something we as a company take seriously, and through apprenticeships we support young adults so that they can complete their education, and learn and develop their skills in a strong professional environment.
In addition, it is important to add that apprentices also bring new competence into the company, both in the digital field – but also with their positive energy and enthusiasm. For us, it has become a natural way to recruit new talent. An employee who knows the company and has shown his or her skills throughout the apprenticeship is always offered a permanent job when the apprenticeship period is over.
We have invested in several talented apprentices since 2012. Our senior employees, project managers and our customers also support our apprentices, and let them take part in larger projects onshore as well as offshore or out in the field. We also have to teach them procedures, routines and safety guidelines in our industry, so apprenticeships is a good way to keep the HSE guidelines alive and updated within the company.
We are incredibly proud of Tore (19) and Aslak (20), our most recent graduated apprentices. Aslak has been a full-time employee for almost a year now after finishing his apprenticeship last year, whilst Tore will face new challenges this autumn when he leaves us to serve in the army for a year.
