Celebrating our people and their achievements! Congratulations to Anni, Liam and Ryan who've all passed their forklift training and have gained their licences.

Anni Sanders with her certificate

Anni joined us in 2020 after finding out about Focus SB through her Mum then visiting us at our stand at an apprenticeship roadshow in Hastings. She thought we looked interesting and asked if she could come and do work experience for a week. Anni loved it so when she left school she applied for an apprenticeship as a supply chain warehouse operative, which she has recently successfully completed, despite the challenges of the pandemic! Anni is trained in goods inward/despatch, stores and assembly, her role involves taking deliveries, checking for damaged/missing items, storing goods, moving stock by various methods, picking/packing orders, getting goods ready for dispatch, maintaining stock records, health and safety, manual handling and using all forms of documentation throughout these areas.

Liam Barrett with his certificate

Liam started with us in 2016 (2nd from left in group image), at our Napier road site in the production department and over the last six years has become proficient in all aspects of finishing. At the beginning of August this year he progressed to the Engineering Department and has started on the press setters training program. We look forward to supporting Liam’s progression in this latest chapter of his career journey!

Ryan was part way through studying for his Level 3 engineering qualification at Hastings college after joining our apprenticeship scheme straight from school when he was nominated for The Manufacturer’s Top100 award by managing director Gary Stevens. When Ryan was asked ‘Why did you choose a manufacturing engineering apprenticeship?’ during an interview for Focus SB’s blog he says: “In July 2018 I felt inspired to apply to join Focus SB as an apprentice straight from school after looking at the company’s website.” Ryan has since successfully completed his apprenticeship achieving a Distinction in EAL Level 3 diploma in Advanced Manufacturing!
