GES Group Apprentice, Michael Curtis, wins Apprentice of the Year at the 10th annual Ballymena Borough Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards!

Held at the Tullyglass Hotel, Ballymena, on Thursday 11th of October, Michael Curtis, a 4th Year Apprentice with Grants Electrical Services (NI) Ltd. walked away from the event a winner. Michael holds an NVQ L3 and a BTEC Level 3 qualification, and he is currently completing his HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Since embarking on his Apprenticeship with GES, Michael has consistently met and surpassed our requirements and expectations. GES Group’s role in Industry includes the refurbishment of complex machine components for a wide range of applications, and our demanding Engineering programmes require multi-skilled people with both electrical and mechanical disciplines. Our apprentice rotation policy has ensured that Michael has been given a sound grounding in a variety of skills such as panel building, servicing, maintenance, and motor rewinds.

David Moore, GES Group Managing Director, said,

“GES Group works to achieve and maintain powerful partnerships with industry, our customers, and our employees. Michael’s success is a perfect example of our new strategy having recently invested in a new training and development programme with an intake of 18 apprentices. The company would like to thank Mike for his brilliant efforts over the past 4 years of his apprenticeship, committing to his own personal and professional success and development; we are very pleased to have him as part of our future strategy.”

GES Group would also like to acknowledge the NRC’s commitment to providing quality training and development to apprentices and local businesses, and we of course congratulate the Ballymena Chamber of Commerce on their 10th anniversary; their outstanding efforts continue to encourage and develop the local business community.
