Forging a new pathway into the industry

Forging a new pathway into the industry

J & E Hall has launched a new initiative providing job opportunities for ex-military personnel and help address the ‘skills gap’ crisis within the cooling sector.

J & E Hall already has a well-established apprenticeship scheme, developing its own engineers, but is now looking at new ways to encourage engineers into the industry.

Martin Jefkins, HR Director says, “There is a real need to recruit new people to meet the demands of developing technologies within the industry. Employing leavers from the armed forces will help to plug the skills gap and complement our existing apprenticeship scheme.”

In partnership with the Forces Recruitment Service, J & E Hall is looking to recruit personnel with specific engineering experience through its fast-track scheme. Many will already have the key attributes the industry is looking for and will be able to upskill to become industrial refrigeration engineers.

David Hall is the first employee taken on as part of J & E Hall’s new scheme. David joins the Plymouth service centre as a Technician after a 12-year career with the Royal Navy. David says. “I’m looking forward to developing my existing know-how and carve out a new career path within industrial refrigeration.”

Martin continues, “It’s a real pleasure to welcome David to the team and be part of his career development. With ongoing and continuous career progression and an enviable list of company benefits, J & E Hall offers a great career path for engineers from outside of the industry.”
