Christeyns invests in Talent for the Future

Twenty one year old Harry Coop has recently came on board of Christeyns – the UK-based detergent, hygiene and construction chemical manufacturer. He entered a four-year chemical engineering apprenticeship as a part time student at Bradford University. Works manager Neville Kildunne  who runs the apprenticeship recruitment and training at Christeyns stated: “It is crucial for the progress of the company, and the industry, that we encourage and develop new talent.  We take on new apprentices each year, but this is a step up in terms of commitment to further extend the opportunities we offer.”

Harry decided to pursue an apprenticeship rather than a full time degree option so that he could learn in a more hands-on environment.  Harry explains: “I will gain a degree as well as get the opportunity to travel to different sites gaining knowledge on their chemical processes..”

Christeyns introduced the initiative in 2011 to fulfill their requirement for Quality Control Technicians and to offer someone new to the world of work a solid start and a useful training program to provide skills for future roles. At this moment there are also another seven apprentices currently undergoing various programs at Christeyns in fields such as Chemistry and Business Administration
