CircoSense strengthens commitment to local community with apprentice
CircoSense, the specialists in reducing costs in hot water systems based in Clydebank, are delighted to announce the recruitment of an electrical apprentice, which is their first apprentice since the doors opened to the head office in April 2016.
The company, who are based in Clydebank Business Park, are committed to contributing to the local economy, and have ambitious growth plans over the coming 12 months which will see a significant increase in head count, creating opportunities in a variety of roles.
As part of this commitment, CircoSense leapt at the opportunity to work in partnership with the Prince’s Trust to offer West College Scotland student Jordan Docherty a week-long work experience placement. During this placement, Jordan impressed the technical team with his hard work and conscientious attitude, and was invited to join the company as an electrical apprentice.
Jordan, who was studying at Clydebank Campus of West College Scotland, will spend the next four years completing his apprenticeship before becoming a qualified electrician, splitting his time between assembling the CircoSense3000 device and conducting surveys, installations and quality checks. As part of this apprenticeship, Jordan will also have the added bonus of working with CircoSense’s exclusive installation partners, Campbell and Kennedy, which will help him to gain a more varied experience and skillset.
Martyn Savage, Technical Director of CircoSense, stated
“We were impressed at how quickly Jordan learned and integrated himself into our existing team during his work experience, and we are delighted that Jordan has returned and joined us as an electrician apprentice. It has been part of our company ethos from day one to ensure that as the company continues to build and grow, we would give back to the local community and provide opportunities to local people.”
In addition to providing an apprenticeship, CircoSense have also worked with West College Scotland to lower the cost of heating hot water on their Clydebank Campus, and have just completed a “Proof of Concept” where the CircoSense3000 device was able to achieve a 41% reduction in gas consumption for hot water, lowering their energy bill and reducing carbon emissions.
