What do our Apprentices think?

Jonathan Hickin

Jonathan has completed his engineering apprenticeship with us and is now a fully-fledged service engineer working in the Midlands. We caught up with him to find out what he would say to someone considering an apprenticeship.

“Look no further! I think the sheer calibre of training and support speaks volumes with the feedback we receive regarding our services and general customer service. I think that if someone is presented with the opportunity to work with such a brilliant company, is to value the opportunity they have in a future-proof industry. Working with Linde means you’re also offered a plethora of benefits, I have never worked at a company that has made me feel as valued as Linde have.”
