Spinks are celebrating National Apprenticeship Week

This week is National Apprenticeship Week (8th – 12th February 2021), and we wanted to shine the spotlight on three apprentices working here at Spinks.  George Causier, Nathan Hardie and Matthew Marshall.

George Causier, aged 17 started his apprenticeship in November 2020. The apprenticeship is a ‘Level 2
Apprenticeship Standard for Trade Supplier’. George is currently working at Doncaster’s Building branch in the warehouse, he will then gain further product knowledge by working in the yard, and then receive training on the building trade counter.

George said, “I chose the apprenticeship route so I could get some hands-on training. I am learning and expanding my product knowledge more and more every day.  I have also had the chance to do forklift training and gain a certificate in counterbalance, reach truck and the combi lift.”


Nathan Hardie, aged 18. Nathan completed his Level 2 Supply Chain Warehouse Operative Apprenticeship in December 2020 and gained a Distinction. Nathan has worked in the plumbing warehouse at Doncaster and is now employed full time in Doncaster Distribution as an administrator.

Nathan, aged 18 said, “My apprenticeship with Spinks has been that stepping stone to set me off in the right direction for my career. It’s given me the practical skills I need to progress in the workplace.”

Matthew Marshall, aged 19 with be completing his apprenticeship as a Supply Chain Warehouse Operative this month. Spinks have now employed Matthew as a full time Warehouse Operative. During his apprenticeship , Mathew has passed his forklift training and gained a certificate in using the reach truck.

Matthew said; ‘I wanted the opportunity to learn, be paid and gain qualifications at the same time, and that’s what my apprenticeship offers. I have learnt valuable on the job training, which has led to a full time job at Spinks.”






All three are advocates of apprenticeships, believing it’s an important route to a fulfilling and successful career. We recruit apprentices and trainees in both site and office-based roles. For further information contact Spinks.
