You’re hired: Blake joins as new apprentice

Blake HelsdownPSJ Fabrications welcomed a new team member at the end of October when Blake Helsdown joined the company as an apprentice.

Blake, 19, became a member of The Academy, the apprenticeship scheme of PSJ’s parent, The Automated Technology Group. Following a structured programme of learning, Blake will study one day a week at Bedford College.

“One of the reasons that Blake was awarded the apprenticeship was that he demonstrated a clear willingness to learn,” commented Jim Clark, Assistant Works Manager. So far, Blake has experienced various processes in the fabrication shop including MIG welding.

“The first few weeks have been good fun,” said Blake. “It’s been interesting to get to know everyone and how jobs are done.” Outside of work, Blake is a football fan and a former player for Rushden & Diamonds FC.
