WELCOME TO OUR NEW PROCESS ENGINEER APPRENTICE
CB Technology is thrilled to welcome their new Process Engineer Apprentice, Ethan Smith, to the team.
Ethan is the second Apprentice to join the team and he will be working closely with CB Technology’s experienced team of engineers, receiving industry-leading training, and learning experience to support his development.
Ethan’s role entails implementing customer data into our system and creating a process to introduce the product to the manufacturing team. This involves creating all documentation from start to finish ensuring this is kept up to date, and capturing any changes made to the product.
Ethan comments: “I like my job as I find every day to be different. I rarely find myself doing the same job/task day-in-day-out. In this job, some days may be more challenging and busier compared to other days where its more easy-going and things run much more smoothly”.
CB Technology believes recruiting an apprentice is a productive and effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce.
We look forward to supporting, developing, and working with Ethan and wish him every success on his CB Technology journey.
