Norbord Invests in New Recruits

Norbord has introduced the latest recruits to the company's Engineering Graduate Scheme.  Andrew Chapman, Grant McEwan, Deborah Ayebare and Luca Micheletti joined the scheme on 19 October 2020 and are based at Norbord's plants in Cowie, South Molton and Inverness.

Despite the challenging times young people find themselves in with training and employment right now, Andrew Chapman says he has: "already been exposed to a wealth of different areas within the business giving me a good understanding of the processes and the company as a whole." These sentiments are echoed by his fellow graduates who also say they have been made feel very welcome by their new colleagues across the company and already feel very much part of the Norbord family.

For all the new recruits, the Norbord scheme is a continuation of their engineering training gained at university and they bring with them individual skills which will be put to good use. Norbord is proud of its history of training for young people and has run apprenticeship schemes for 40 years. Andrew Taylor, Group Process and Engineering Manager at Norbord, is one of the graduate mentors and knows the importance of graduate schemes: "It's a real pleasure to be able to support and mentor the introduction and development of our recent engineering graduate intake. I started my career in the wood panels industry, some 25 years ago, as a graduate process engineer and know just how beneficial to my own development and experience this opportunity was."
