TM Services, a division of TM Machinery Sales, has continued to expand its apprentice base by taking on engineering student Liam Dunkley as an apprentice service co-ordinator.

Liam, aged 20, is in his first year of a three-year engineering apprenticeship at Leicester College. He currently spends three days a week providing technical support for TM Services’ manager Dave Roberts combined with two days a week at college.

Says TM Machinery director Matt Pearce: “Liam is the second apprentice we have taken on recently in our service division. This demonstrates our long- term commitment to local young people and to providing thorough training for our service division staff.”

He added that they expect to recruit another engineering apprentice in the next year or two.

Last year the company’s first apprentice service engineer, Jordan Wills, was named Apprentice of the Year out of his class of 40 at South Leicestershire College.
