Southern Manufacturing Apprentice of the Year Award 2018
In support of southern manufacturing companies in the south of England, The Business Magazine and sponsors of the Southern Manufacturing 100 launched the Apprentice of the Year award at our annual Southern Manufacturing dinner on March 1, 2018, at Oakley Hall.
The award acknowledges and celebrates the exceptional contribution of an apprentice in their workplace. To be eligible for this award, applicants had to be either currently undertaking an apprenticeship or have completed it within the past 12 months (since March 2017).
The award was open to all engineering and manufacturing companies in the Thames Valley and Solent & South Central region and nominations were submitted by either apprentices or their employers. Our panel of expert judges and sponsors were seeking exemplar apprentices who effectively showcased the difference the applicant has made to the organisation they work in. Judges have now chosen five finalists, who, along with representatives from our published Southern Manufacturing 100 listing, will be invited to attend an exclusive lunch and guided tour of the world leading Manufacturing Technology Centre at Ansty Park in Coventry on October 31, 2018, where the winner will be announced.
- Harrison Farthing – AWE Plc
- Abbi Fisher – BAE Systems
- Josh Gilbert – Magal AWT Ltd
- Calan Kenward – LG Motion
- Chris Marrs – Xtrac Ltd
Any manufacturer who would like to attend should contact Pauline Moore at email@example.com
