Leada Acrow Builds for the Future by Introducing Trainee Scheme

Leada Acrow, the leading falsework, formwork and groundwork supplier, is introducing a Trainee Scheme as part of the company’s quest to attract and retain the most talented people in the industry. The trainees will be employed as Temporary Works Engineers and will be given on-the-job training by experienced professionals in the company’s Technical Offices whilst also completing a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Civil/Structural Engineering on a day or block release basis. 

Leada Acrow operates four design offices in Colnbrook, Walsall Wood, Chesterfield and Glasgow, where Temporary Works Engineers use the latest 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems to prepare detailed designs for the company’s entire product range. This enables Leada Acrow to provide a fast, efficient design service to complement the equipment supplied, as well as ensuring rapid response to structural or design changes.

Paul Raybone, Technical Director of Leada Acrow, said: “We have adopted a long-term view with regards to recruitment and introducing a Trainee Scheme helps us build for our future. Our Temporary Works Engineers perform a very important function at Leada Acrow and the scheme will allow trainees to benefit from on-the-job training alongside some very experienced Design Engineers whilst gaining a qualification in Civil/Structural Engineering.

“Investing in our future is important, our first trainee, Lewis Cunningham has started in our Glasgow office and we are hoping we can extend the programme even further to develop more candidates. We anticipate that the Trainee Scheme will be a fantastic route to a long and successful career with Leada Acrow, allowing people to learn as they earn” he continued.
