Apprentice Testimonials

I chose a career at WEC Group as they offer the highest amount of professionalism I’ve seen anywhere, as well as great opportunities for anyone with the ambition to progress in their careers.

I originally heard about WEC from my cousin who was a 1st year welding & fabrication apprentice with them at the time and he told me about the opportunity to better myself in a trade worth having under your belt.

I decided to give it a go considering that I was stuck at a fast food job at the time with little qualifications.

Turned out to be the best decision I have ever made looking at how far I’ve come now.

I began my career at WEC Group as I wanted to learn an interesting trade and get a life time skill behind me. The WEC Apprentice Academy had just opened and I only live around the corner.

The thing I enjoy the most is the variety of projects we get coming in, there’s always something different and I’m learning something new every day. One of the main benefits of working at WEC is that there is plenty of overtime if you want it and good bonuses.

I certainly would recommend WEC Group to anyone looking to progress their career in engineering.

I began my career at WEC Group as they offer great career opportunities and a good apprenticeship scheme.

I have recently transferred into the sales team after working as a laser operator, so I am developing my skills as a trainee sales estimator.

I would highly recommend WEC Group to any individual looking to start an apprenticeship with a good company.
