Data Centre World 2020

AF Switchgear would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and industry peers for taking the time out to visit us at Data Centre World 2020. The feedback for our new stand was incredibly positive and everyone enjoyed our new AF Switchbeer!

Your continued support & feedback on our products helps us to maintain our position as one of the largest switchgear suppliers in the market and for that, we are truly appreciative.

The company would also like to make a special mention to Experium Agency and publicly thank them for their support, hard work and brilliant design ideas in regard to the exhibition throughout the whole process.

Open Evening Update

AF Switchgear was due to hold a specialist Open Evening in conjunction with the West Nottinghamshire College Apprenticeship Service on the 25th March 2020. However, due to the current Coronavirus epidemic, we have regretfully decided to cancel this event.

We have a duty of care to our employees and those of the public so have decided, in-line with the current government and proposed advice the company felt it had no choice but to cancel the planned event. This is a decision that has not been taken lightly particularly given the numbers of invitees that were due to attend the event, currently well over 100 people.

On the bright side, the WNC is still planning to run assessments on the 15th and 16th April, so candidates should be aware that they will still need to attend those. After the assessment period, low key visits for selected candidates including their guardians will be arranged.

Again, special thanks to Ricky Singh and Lee Speed for helping with this recruitment drive, your efforts are very much appreciated and Good Luck to all the candidates.

Current electrical engineering apprentice Sam Allen, 18, said: “Things are going very well for me here. I’ve just finished working with my mentor and I’m now working more independently on jobs and really enjoying things.”

Apprentice business partner Ricky Singh said: “This open event will be the perfect opportunity for people to learn more about these roles within a well-established company which specialises in switchgear and control panel applications.

“There could be the opportunity to apply for vacancies at the open evening should individuals have the pre-requisite qualifications.”
