Security firm hopes to unlock potential after hiring new apprentices
Locsafe, based in Shrewsbury, has recruited level three fire and safety technician apprentices in collaboration with The Ladder for Shropshire, the apprenticeship program supported by the Shropshire Star.
Locsafe is a long established family business focused on providing specialist knowledge and skills in the security industry.
Its main services include locksmiths, intrusion alarms, automatic doors and barriers, video surveillance, access control, automatic doors, fire alarm systems, intercom systems, safes, car key programming and data network infrastructure. It also provides consulting services to businesses, local authorities and other security companies.
Adam Williams, Technical Director of Locsafe, said: “Due to the increased demand for our services, the business is expanding rapidly and we are fortunate to be able to create new opportunities.
“We are very keen to support young locals and have recently hired two new level three fire and security technician apprentices.
“Our new apprentices will be mentored and trained to our high standards by our qualified staff and with the training provider, paying particular attention to the quality and cleanliness of our facilities. We are really delighted that they are joining the team.
Amanda Carpenter, Project Manager at Ladder for Shropshire, said: “It’s fantastic to work with such a forward-thinking company that identifies with the benefits of recruiting young people.
“New apprentices can be trained specifically for their industry and become valued members of their growing team. The company also supports the new Kickstart program and has opportunities available.”
Meanwhile, Locsafe is currently interviewing someone to work with the physical security side of the business, with a focus on hardware lockdowns and door repairs. He is also looking to train someone to take on the work of key cutting and bench locksmithing, which includes learning how to program car keys.
