News: Acorn work placement success


Acorn Industrial Services, one of the largest power transmission distributors in the country, has taken on its first ever work placement.

The growing company moved across the borough to Hellaby last year and supplies bearings, power transmissions and linear systems to a global customer base.

Claudia Titterton, a Year 10 student from Wales High School, joined the Acorn team for two weeks in July, working in various departments including marketing, customs, sales, purchasing and the warehouse and taking on a wide variety of jobs from sending leaflets out to customers to unpacking deliveries and storing them on the warehouse racking.

Claudia said: "It has been good to go around the office and see all the different roles people have at Acorn. I've gained a real insight into what it's like to work here, and to see how everything functions."

Before her work placement, Claudia was unsure about what career path she wanted to take. After her time at Acorn, Claudia has decided she would like to work in a practical working environment where she can take a more hands on approach in her day to day job.

Claudia hasn't been the only one to benefit from this experience, staff at Acorn that had the opportunity to work with Claudia were full of praise. Richard Hewitt, marketing manager at Acorn, said: "During the time Claudia has spent in marketing she has been a massive help from start to finish. I'm glad Claudia enjoyed her time working in the marketing department in particular."

Acorn is now hoping more students will learn about the world of work by taking placements with them.
