It also includes completing all paperwork associated with starting a new job.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your start time and go to the area you were shown at stage 2/induction, you will meet your trainer who will issue your shoes, clock card and show you where your locker and facilities are. Once you are ready to go into the factory, your trainer will show you where you will be working and what is expected, but you will be placed with experienced employees to help you get up to speed. Our experienced training team will then work with you to complete tasks to our work instruction standards. Everyone starts on 6 week trial basis.
