The company has a diverse range of ages, older and younger; with the belief that everyone should have the chance to enjoy and work in our exciting industry. Giving young people the opportunity to learn through apprenticeships is something DLM value. They acknowledge the importance of giving young people a start in the industry, and eliminating the stigma that comes with apprenticeships, especially as career choices for the younger generation are now so vast. DLM could not be prouder of their team member Harley to have achieved this award, a great initiative by LEEA to show the effort young people put in to their apprenticeships.
Harley’s performance in both on-the-job and off-the-job training has constantly been outstanding. Harley has been working with DLM for two years attaining his apprenticeship through Southampton Engineering Training Association (SETA). In the first section of his apprenticeship he studied at SETA learning general engineering, he then went on to do day release, to broaden his knowledge of on the job training. Harley’s work effort and determination brings a spark to DLM and they are thrilled that LEEA has acknowledged this.
Overall, a successful time spent at LiftEx this year for DLM, they look forward to returning to the awards evening and exhibition next year.
