Many congratulations to Matthew (Matty) Chandler, who has been shortlisted as a regional finalist for the EEF Manufacturing Apprentice of the Year award.
A Compressed Air Engineer with PPS, Matty joined the company in 2008 as a labourer installing compressed air pipework but was encouraged by his manager to undertake an apprenticeship.
Following his nomination by PPS, Matty was one of around 150 applicants interviewed by an EEF representative. He has now been shortlisted for the award, which will be announced at the North-East and Yorkshire & Humberside awards ceremony on 19 November at Pavilions of Harrogate.
The regional winner within each apprentice category will go forward to compete for the national title on 10 December in London.
