Congratulations to Aston Fahey who has accepted a diesel apprenticeship with Clarke Equipment.
Aston participated in the Gateway programme this year as he had a genuine interest in pursuing a career in the Automotive trades.
Aston attended the “Got a Trade Got it Made” Speedmeets in September as one avenue to finding an automotive apprenticeship for 2019. Based on the concept of speed-dating, employers meet with students for six minutes to find out about each other. Each then notes whether they’d like to know more. Matches are then put in touch with each other after the event, and potentially job offers may be made. Clarke Equipment were one of the many employers attending the Speedmeet.
Impressed with what he learnt about Clarke Equipment Aston took the initiative after the Speedmeet to contact Clarkes and request some work experience so each party could learn a little more about each other. Aston’s initiative, enthusiasm and determination won Clarkes over and resulted in an Apprenticeship offer.
