Family owned UK business Adey Steel Group is expanding its team with an ongoing recruitment process and an exciting apprenticeship programme, giving young people the chance to build a career in the steel industry.

Recognising the need to attract young people into the engineering and construction industries, the Adey Steel Group welcomes four new entrants to its apprenticeship programme annually. Working with local colleges such as Loughborough and Stephenson College, the company focusses on training the apprentices in all aspects of the business, from developing both theory and knowledge to working on the shop floor and in the offices. This ensures apprentices graduate with a rounded knowledge of the industry.

In recent years, the Loughborough-based company has successfully trained fabricator welders as well as draughtsmen. Apprentices have also gone on to successfully attain roles on workshop floors, as CAD designers and project managers.

The company also welcomes speculative applications for full time positions from candidates who feel their personality, attitude and relevant skills could contribute to the Group.

Andrew Adey, Managing Director of the Adey Steel Group said: “Being a family owned company gives us a unique perspective on the importance of nurturing fresh talent. Our rolling recruitment process and apprenticeship scheme is indicative of this. By working closely with SEMTA and prioritising the pastoral care of our apprentices, we can ensure they will smoothly bridge the gap between school and full time work.

“With recent headlines reporting mass job losses within the steel industry, it is important for us to be able to recruit as many as possible and offer young people the chance to enter the industry in a reliable environment.”

The Adey Steel Group, which recently celebrated its 90th anniversary, operates across the construction and engineering sectors across its four business areas; Adey Steel, Adey SteelShop, Adey Technical and Adey Transport. The company has worked on both large and small scale projects such as Battersea Power Station, Selfridges London and the University of Nottingham.

Adey Steel Group began in 1925 as the local ironmongers in Loughborough town centre by Harry Adey and his wife. The business has been kept in the family, seeing all four generations of the Adey sons managing the family business.

A recent rebrand saw the company merge its four businesses under one overarching brand, the Adey Steel Group. The rebrand also saw a new company website as well as new marketing materials.
