REM UK, the UK’s Leading Manufacturer of Spa, Beauty and Barber Equipment and Furniture, has announced the hiring of 17 year old Oliver Calvert as a New Apprentice in their Timber Machine Shop and Cabinet Making Department.

Oliver, a Burnley lad who attended Blessed Trinity School, is currently undertaking his apprenticeship at Burnley College.

This new addition is a testament to REM’s commitment to investing in the future of the industry and their long-standing history of training and developing talent and is one of several new APPRENTICE roles that will be created this year

Oliver has had a keen interest in JOINERY and CARPENTRY for several years, which is what drew him to pursue an apprenticeship with REM.

Oliver said, “I’m thrilled to be a part of the REM team and to be learning from some of the most experienced professionals in the industry. I’m excited to develop my skills and knowledge in timber machining and cabinet making, and to contribute to REM’s reputation for delivering high-quality furniture and equipment.” Andrew Harrison, the REM JOINERY Manager is more than happy with the effort and determination Oliver is applying to his training schedule and is sure he will become a valued member of the REM Timber Team

REM’s decision to employ an APPRENTICE instead of an experienced person was driven by the COMPANY’s need for workers with specific skills and their desire to invest in the future of the industry.

Over the coming months, Oliver will be given training in all areas within the timber department, learning a variety of skills to help him become a fully trained operative capable of carrying out tasks in all areas of the department.

REM is actively looking for one more APPRENTICE in the timber department, with the possibility of more in the coming months in their upholstery workshop.
