Bostonair Group has partnered with Longcroft School and Sixth Form College, based in Beverley, to support students in getting their foot on the career ladder and offering young people opportunities within wind energy and aviation.
Bostonair Group, whose head office is based in Norwood, Beverley, are a group of companies which includes Bostonair, Boston Energy, Boston Renewables and Boston rail providing recruitment services, maintenance services, technical training and renewable energy solutions to organisations across the globe. Key customers across the group include Siemens Gamesa, TUI, MHI Vestas, East Riding Council and Lufthansa.
Adam Sumner, HR Director at Bostonair, said: “We’re very excited to be joining up with Longcroft school. We’re always looking for new talent to join us at Bostonair and this year we’ve welcomed three new apprentices to our teams so far.
“We look forward to working closely with the school to support them with their Careers Education Programme and to also encourage young people to join the aviation and renewable sector and gain some valuable hands-on experience across these sectors with us.”
One Bostonair employee who is also a former student from Longcroft is Recruitment Consultant, Liam Wilson. Liam began his career at Bostonair as an Administration Apprentice and has since worked his way up the ladder to become Aviation Recruiter and Rail Administrator, working with companies around the world to provide high quality manpower.
“I started working at Bostonair in 2016 as an Administration Apprentice and I now work as an Aviation Recruiter.
He adds: “Every day is completely different and it’s never a boring place to work. It’s a great place to develop and you’ll be given plenty of support and training and opportunities to prove your worth.”
The partnership between the school and Bostonair will hope to encourage young people and help the school to plan and implement a range of opportunities for pupils and students.
Mr Coupe, Associate SLT Careers/PSHE/Values at Longcroft School, said: “We are already planning our first exciting collaboration with Bostonair, starting in the Autumn Term to help female pupils who wish to go into manufacturing and engineering. This is just the start of what we hope will be a long and fruitful partnership.”
