Marshall-Tufflex marks 75th birthday with careers help for talented youngsters

Hastings employer Marshall-Tufflex is marking its 75th year in business with a renewed drive to raise awareness of the career opportunities across its manufacturing business.

The cable management manufacturer, a UK market leader in its sector, is committed to assisting young local job seekers and has already supported five apprentices through relevant NVQ Level 3 Advanced Modern Apprenticeships.

And, as in previous years, the company has announced its attendance at a number of careers events for 2017.

“Marshall-Tufflex is committed to Hastings and we really want to nurture and ‘grow our own’ talent to the benefit of both our business and the town,” said Chief Executive Paul Hetherington. “Over the last two years we have been actively promoting engineering and other career opportunities in the company to primary and secondary school students. We want to continue to develop local talent, keeping skilled workers in the town and inspiring young people to consider engineering – and Marshall-Tufflex – as a future career, much as we have done over the last 75 years.”

Marshall-Tufflex will be attending a range of careers events, including local Jobs Fairs, school career programmes, engaging with the Enterprise Advisor Network, activities co-ordinated by the Education Futures Trust and those arranged by STEM/STEAM Sussex. All of these aim to support the development of careers and increase awareness, helping the next generation with entering the world of work.
