Westley Group is one of Europe’s largest privately-owned foundry and engineering groups. With 4 manufacturing sites across the UK, we are proud to host a number of paid apprenticeships with outstanding training by industry recognised providers.

The program continues to gather momentum and we are proud that 17 apprentices have completed their qualification with us in recent years. Our ever expanding program now consists of 25 aspiring individuals working towards Level 2 – Level 4 Apprenticeships across Engineering, CNC Machining, Metal Fabrication, AAT Accounting, Electrical and Mechanical Maintenance, Welding/Fabrication, as well as Foundry, Pattern and Casting Operations of course.

Mike Richards (Group Finance Director) commented – “We are proud to be able to offer some fantastic apprenticeship programs and train the next generation of engineers and foundry technicians. Everyone on the scheme is extremely talented and hardworking, we are proud to support the future of the industry by giving them the tools to succeed in their careers.
Having apprentices working across the business is hugely rewarding and we are pleased to be looking to grow the number of apprenticeship opportunities over the next few years. It’s an excellent way to learn new skills whilst earning and with our recent investments there couldn’t be a more exciting time to join the business.”
