Arden Dies launches apprenticeship recruitment drive

Arden Dies apprentice Lewis Catchpole

A Stockport manufacturing firm has launched its latest apprenticeship recruitment drive.

Arden Dies is seeking applicants to join its successful apprenticeship programme, based at its purpose-built factory site in Marple, Stockport.

Arden Dies is the UK’s leading die-maker, specialising in die and tooling manufacture for the packaging and carton industry.

The company is now recruiting for its latest cohort of apprentices in a range of manufacturing roles, which aim to teach young people new skills and build themselves a bright future.

Martin Poynter, Managing Director at Arden Dies, said: “We are very proud to launch our latest apprenticeship recruitment drive and provide more opportunities for young people to get a head start on their career.

“We believe in investment, especially in the people who work for us, and we’ve had some fantastic success stories through our own apprenticeship programme, providing training and employment opportunities to local people while helping us to develop a stronger workforce.

“Arden Dies is a leader in the packaging sector, and with the current drive for more sustainable packaging, we can offer a bright future and a promising career path for our new recruits.

“Apprenticeships provide a fantastic opportunity for people to gain valuable skills, experience and qualifications while still taking home a wage, so I’d encourage young people and school-leavers to seriously consider an apprenticeship with Arden.”

Apprentice Lewis Catchpole is one of Arden’s many success stories. Lewis, aged 19, joined the company in 2017 and has recently completed the first two years of his Level Three apprenticeship. He’s now embarking on his Level Four qualification, which is a HNC in Mechanical Engineering.

Lewis said: “I’d highly recommend an apprenticeship with Arden Dies. It’s provided me with the training, skills and support I need to succeed in my career, and I’m earning at the same time.

“For anyone thinking of going down the apprenticeship route I’d say go for it – it’s given me the best start to my career.”

All Arden apprentices will work towards gaining a Level Three apprenticeship in the first instance and will receive hands-on experience as well as classroom-based training programmes to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship.
