Merseyside air-conditioning and ventilation supplier Everkool says it will expand its successful apprenticeship programme over the next 12 months.

Bootle-based Everkool launched its apprenticeship scheme in 2019. It looked to actively recruit young people classed as NEETs (not in education, employment or training. Chief executive Craig Greenwood is determined to offer opportunities to disadvantaged young people.

It is one of the North-West’s leading providers of air-conditioning and ventilation, working alongside many of the region’s biggest brands including Merseytravel, Knowsley Council and Epic Hotels.

Everkool works closely with Seetec Outsource to provide employment placements and The Engineering College to provide the training required for apprentices. The company is now expanding its manufacturing operations later this year.

It will move to larger premises, increasing the organisation’s capacity and creating further employment and apprenticeship opportunities. As a result it will be able to take on a further five apprentices.

Graig said: “Out of all of Everkool’s achievements throughout the years, having the ability to provide employment opportunities to people from similar backgrounds to myself is one of my proudest.

“As we continue to grow, it’s my priority to ensure our apprenticeship scheme grows with us so that more young people can improve their life chances through quality employment opportunities.”

Seetec Outsource employment executive, Kerry Traill, added: “The opportunities that Everkool provides to our students at Seetec Outsource are invaluable. Craig and the rest of the team provide support, guidance and understanding which have transformed some of our students’ life prospects.”
