Celebrating Women and Apprentices at TR Fastenings

Today (8th March 2019) is International Women’s Day. It also marks the end of National Apprenticeship week. So, as we are hugely proud of our female employees and our apprentices, we thought we’d have a double celebration today and share some great TR statistics about both!
  • Four of our current eight apprentices are female;
    • Lydia Ball – HR Apprentice, Uckfield
    • Amber Battye, Business Apprentice – H,S & E, North East
    • Emily Cowens, Business Apprentice, North East
    • Emily Haigh, Warehouse Apprentice – North East
  • Five of our seven location heads in the UK are female.
  • We have a pay gap of only 2.2% compared with an average figure of 21% in the manufacturing industry. Source: BBC
Lydia Ball, our HR apprentice in Uckfield, says:
“I wanted to leave school and get a job, but I still wanted to continue my education, so getting an apprenticeship was an ideal way to do both. TR Fastenings is an amazing company to work for and I really enjoy working here. My team is wonderful and I feel really safe, valued and looked after. I have already been trained on a range of areas which have given me my own responsibilities and enabled me to identify my strengths and I look forward to developing my career further at TR.”
