NI Chamber of Commerce’s annual President’s Banquet

Ryobi recently attended the NI Chamber of Commerce’s annual President’s Banquet at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast.

The guest speaker at the banquet was ex-Top Gear host Richard Hammond, and it was fitting that Ryobi was featured in the video promoting the event’s theme, “engineering in motion”.

Apprentice of the year for the Academic year 2016/17 in Ryobi took place on Friday 03/11. It was also a great occasion to welcome our new first year apprentices onsite and to thank the 5 guys who have just completed their apprenticeship: Steve Costello, Matt Halliday, Jonathan Orr, Peadar Boyd and Thomas McDowell.

It was a great opportunity to celebrate and to recognise the achievements and commitment of every apprentice and to thank the mentors, supervisors and managers for their continued support of the programme.

Ryobi is grateful for the support it receives from the Department of Employment and Learning and our training provider, Northern Region College, as well as on-going assistance from Invest Northern Ireland to support its business improvement activities.

 

We place a very high value on the apprentice programme and strongly believe in its potential.  It’s an opportunity and our responsibility to develop a pool of talented people who will be our future skilled technicians, engineers and managers and who will play a significant role in the continued success and growth of the company.  We are proud to have 41 high calibre apprentices at various stages of their apprenticeship, and we believe there are great opportunities for everyone to continue to develop and grow within Ryobi, both during and beyond their apprenticeship.
