Prestigious Lancashire company seeking five exceptional apprentices – and they’re doing it The Themis Way.

World-renowned combustion experts Proctor Process Plant Limited have joined forces with Themis at Burnley College to provide five new Apprenticeship placements – from engineering roles to business administration.

Roles include:

  • Engineering Product Design Degree Apprentice Level 6 (Mechanical/Electrical Knowledge)
  • Pipe Welder Apprentice Level 3 – On-site MMA Welder
  • Maintenance Operation Engineering Technician Apprentice Level 3 – on-site Mechanical / Electrical Engineer x 2 (Electrical bias preferred but not essential)
  • Business Administration Apprentice Level 3

Proctor Process Plant Limited (PPPL) design, manufacture, install and maintain an array of industrial combustion equipment to a wide range of industries both in the UK and Worldwide – from food processing to aluminium canning, engineered fabrics to composite materials.

PPPL are a family-owned firm who have been operating in Lancashire since 1983 and make it their mission to “supply the highest standards of customer care with unparalleled levels of personal commitment to every project they undertake – from the simplest installation to the most sophisticated design and manufacturing applications.”
