Shropshire dairy giant Muller continues apprenticeship drive

Senior managers from yoghurt giant Muller have visited Telford College to meet the company’s latest apprentices.

The college has a long standing relationship with the Market Drayton-based company.

Eight more Muller apprentices have now just begun their training at the college, as part of a five-year plan which will also include an HNC in engineering.

Three members of the senior leadership team from Muller – maintenance and apprenticeship manager Alan Filmer, head of engineering Stuart Ellison, and operations director Roger Emery met up with the new apprentices.

Filmer said: “We’re looking forward to developing our already blossoming relationship with the college who source and train all of our apprentices.

“We’ve been working with Telford College for a number of years for our apprenticeship programme – some of our early apprentices are now in pivotal roles within the company.”

Telford College’s assistant principal for employer engagement, Sue Gomer, added: “It was a pleasure to welcome Alan, Stuart and Rob, and strengthen our ongoing relationship with Muller to develop the company’s future workforce.”
