Dekko Window Systems has recruited a new apprentice as part of the company’s commitment to upskilling young people and tackling the industry’s skills gap.

Liam Birch joins the company as a Digital Marketing Apprentice, tasked with promoting and maintaining the Dekko brand through online social channels.

“I’m primarily managing the company’s Swindon Trade Counter Facebook page and Instagram page, and I’m also responsible for finding sales leads on the social channels and referring them on to our sales team on a regular basis,” Liam said.

The company currently employs four apprentices across HR, manufacturing and engineering, and will soon be looking to recruit more.

Sales Director Kurt Greatrex comments: “The skills gap is a huge issue facing the industry at the moment, and I predict for a long time to come.

“Apprenticeships are invaluable in tackling this ever-growing issue, and strengthening the industry as a whole, while also giving young people the opportunity to learn on the job and develop valuable skillsets. By taking them on, we can work towards achieving our long-term goal of growing and developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce to add to our already talented team.”
