AS part of its latest recruitment drive to meet increasing customer demand, Newry based engineering firm, The Exact Group is hosting a number of open days for operatives, aspiring engineers and technicians at its Craigmore Mill facility next month, which will highlight the career opportunities that are available within the precision engineering company.
The open days take place on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th April and will give attendees the chance to find out more about the company, the work that it conducts with global clients, as well as offering a taster session of what a career with the company is like and the progression opportunities that are available.
One of the leading precision engineering firms in Northern Ireland, The Exact Group works across a number of sectors including aerospace, medical and automotive, and the Open Days are ideal for students or school leavers looking to kick start their career, apprentices wanting to develop their existing skills or experienced operatives looking for a change.
Attendees have the option to book a space at a time of their choosing over the two open days, and upon visiting the facility, will receive a tour of the factory, demonstrations of product flow from design through to manufacturing and completion, as well as getting the opportunity to speak to the company’s skilled workforce and team members.
General Manager at The Exact Group, Ronan Callan said, “We are looking forward to hosting our two Open Days and meeting people who have an interest in engineering and individuals who may be considering a career change.

This is in addition to offering HLA apprenticeships in partnership with Southern Regional College (SRC).
