Elddis Academy was established in 2018, working in partnership with Derwentside College. This is just one of our avenues to recruitment. We have many more, but Elddis Academy works alongside our more traditional recruitment routes.

Elddis Academy has been successful, with 80 people taking up employment at Erwin Hymer Group UK Ltd so far.

Students learn about our business and our manufacturing processes. We supply parts and materials so that our Elddis Academy recruits can learn real-life assembly processes in a college environment.

Our staff regularly visit the Derwentside College to meet and talk to students, attend sessions and provide mentoring. Some of our largest suppliers, such as Henkel and CGI also attend and support our training sessions. Potential recruits come on a Factory tour as part of their training and every candidate is guaranteed an interview at the end of the successfully completed course.
