It’s well publicised in the media and within our own customer base that good engineers are hard to find.  Put simply there are not enough qualified engineers in the marketplace and this supply-and-demand imbalance won’t go away anytime soon.

At Okuma we have decided to take charge of this situation within our own organisation, so last year we employed on our first Apprentice (first year) and have plans to employ another two apprentices in 2019.

Seamus Toale is our first Apprentice (first year).  He is a confident, mature young man and has a keen interest in the Machine Tool Industry.  He joined our Victorian Team and is being mentored and guided by our very experienced Service & Applications Engineers, whilst attending TAFE one day a week. 

We welcome Seamus to team Okuma!
