Extra places created at Norbar’s virtual careers event


Banbury based tools manufacturer offers more opportunities to attend on-line event after initial places all snapped up

Demand for places at Norbar Torque Tools’ virtual careers evenings next week has been so great the company has decided to make more slots available.   The Banbury-based tools manufacturer is hosting the event next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening for young people looking to start a career in engineering and manufacturing.

All the places initially offered across the three nights have now gone, so Norbar has opened another 8 sessions to give more young people the chance to find out about apprenticeships.

The virtual careers evening has replaced the company’s usual in-person event at their premises on Wildmere Road, which they were unable to run due to the pandemic.   During the virtual careers evening attendees will be able to discuss the structure and job roles with Norbar’s Head of HR, Wanda Stewart-Lee and Rob Alderman from the Engineering Trust.  

Video tours of the Norbar manufacturing facilities will be available to give an idea of the modern manufacturing environment that could become the workplace for successful apprenticeship applicants.

Julian Bremnar-Smith, Marketing Manager at Norbar Torque Tools told Banbury FM: “For manufacturers like us its extremely important we do everything we can to equip young people with the skills to progress in their career.   Though COVID has made welcoming prospective apprentices to our facilities unfeasible, by taking our open evenings into the digital world we hope to give advice and information to attendees that are looking to go into an engineering career.”

Norbar Torque Tools was established back in the 1940s and is the world’s leading specialist in torque control.   The company is engaged in the design, development and production of torque tightening and measuring equipment for industries such as aerospace, energy, oil and gas, mining and manufacturing.
