This article contains paid-for content created in collaboration with Zentia

LEADING ceiling systems manufacturer Zentia has launched a formal apprenticeship programme at its two factories in the UK. The company has taken on six recruits in a variety of roles for its ceiling tiles and grid/suspension system factories in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.

They include a laboratory technician, two process operators, a manufacturing engineer, HR administrator and HSE technician, some of whom are combining on-the-job training with a day a week at college, over 18 to 42 months.

Zentia already employs seven former apprentices from as long ago as the 1990s in roles ranging from engineering supervisor, project engineer, process improvement engineer and junior control systems engineer to shift maintenance technician.
