After attending Nottingham Colleges Meet the Employer event in May 2022 we were pleased to welcome Jake Shelton to our team. At Brightwake we support education and are committed to the ongoing development of all our employees, so to be able to offer opportunities to young people in our local community is something we are very proud of.
Jake made an excellent impression on Managing Director Steve Cotton and Maintenance & R&D Manager Lewis Cotton at the event, and was later invited to Brightwake for a formal interview.
Jake has now been working in our busy R&D department for 4 months, learning from Lewis Cotton who joined Brightwake himself as an apprentice 10 years ago, and has now completed qualifications in Fabrication as well as Mechanical Engineering. He has been working on a variety of the different machines that Brightwake develop to manufacture all kinds of advanced healthcare products.
Jake is studying towards a 3-year Level 2 qualification in Mechanical Engineering. We are delighted that we can continue to support him as he begins his career and know that with the hard work and enthusiasm to progress he has already shown he will go on to lead a successful and fulfilled career.
