Hillcrest helps Prince’s Trust placements to ‘get into electrical’
An inspiring electrician received an insight into his trade of choice with a Dundee-based maintenance company as part of a national employment initiative this week.
Dale Cartmill has been shadowing Hillcrest Maintenance Services (HMS) electricians for a week’s hands on training as part of the Prince’s Trust Get into Electrical scheme.
Dale said: “It’s great to have the chance to see what working as an electrician is like.
“There are not many opportunities for young people in Dundee so I’m pleased Hillcrest has taken me on for the placement.”
HMS operations supervisor (electrical), Alan Lonie, said: “It’s important to give young people the opportunity to get a real insight into the working day of a trade before they decide on their career.
“Hillcrest spends a lot of time investing in apprenticeships and training opportunities and our work with The Prince’s Trust compliments our other activities around youth employment.”
HMS has also been working with Dundee’s Braeview Academy to engage with school pupils as they start to think about what career path to take.
