Louth based technical plastics manufacturer and recycler, Luxus will be looking to fill apprentice lab technician and machine operator vacancies at the inaugural Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair, 9th September 2016, at the Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth, Lincolnshire.

Luxus is a privately owned £25m turnover business with 150 employees; it’s been at the forefront of high performance sustainable thermoplastics development for over 50 years. Its client base includes major automotive manufacturers, Renault-Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and BMW.

The plastics manufacturer will be looking to fill its SEMTA* apprentice lab technician roles this autumn. Supported by the national Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards initiative, its apprenticeships provide work based technical training and assessment.

Apprentices are expected to complete a Level 3 NVQ Diploma directly relevant to their role with the opportunity to progress to an Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering. Working in Luxus’ state of the art Technical Centre, lab technicians ensure that its products meet rigorous specifications at each stage of production providing clients with the best possible quality materials and service.

Simon Thompson, quality manager at Luxus said: “We’re looking to use the opportunity the new jobs fair provides to get our name out into the local community; to attract new ‘talent’ right across the business to fill future engineering, laboratory and production roles.

“We want to showcase our business to school leavers, graduates and jobseekers. Many of whom don’t realise the true extent of our business, a world class plastics manufacturer right on their doorstep. A Luxus apprentice will also be on hand to provide a true insight into the business.”

Skills are vital to the engineering and advance manufacturing sectors such as plastics. According to SEMTA ‘The STEM sector needs 160,000 engineers, scientists and technicians per year by 2020 and 15% of SEMTA’s sector companies have skills gaps’.

Simon Thompson continues: “The skills ‘gap’ in engineering is a very real concern; the SEMTA apprentice programme is helping us to ensure that our apprentices develop a skill set that is relevant to our needs, helping to secure our future.”
