Apprentices join the TMAT team

TMAT has welcomed two new Business Administrator apprentices to its team.

Abigail Robinson is 18 years old and lives locally to Chesterfield. She recently completed her A-levels and decided on an apprenticeship to help progress a career in business. Abigail chose the Business Administration apprenticeship which will give her experience in a multi-faceted role. She will be responsible for everything from reception to admin support for Production Planning. This role will allow Abigail to gain skills she can apply to other administrative roles.

Locally born and bred Dale Smith, 18 has been working in an HGV repair centre since leaving school. Dale decided he wanted to change his career direction to a more “white collar” work environment. He chose the Business Administrator apprenticeship because he can gain skills and experience in many areas.

TMAT is committed to offering apprenticeships to young people that give them opportunities to learn practical skills and to build life long careers.

The Results

EEF Awards and the Derbyshire Times Business Awards results.

TMAT was delighted to be runners up all the awards.

MD, Jason Lippitt said:

“The EEF Awards was a brilliant event. TMAT was a finalist for the region, the Midlands [a huge geographical area], in the top five. TMAT wasn’t competing with companies on the same scale, they were some huge, multi-million pound businesses. So it was an absolute delight to sit alongside them on the day.”

TMAT lost out to Caterpillar in the regional finals for the Business Growth Award.

He continued:

“The Derbyshire Times Business Awards were also good fun and it was fantastic to meet other local businesses and see such worthy candidates all come together. TMAT was a finalist for the Manufacturing Award but was pipped to the post by Cathelco and runner up Donkins. Again, a massive honour to be a finalist among such great manufacturers.”
