Job Description

Chase Plastics are one of the country’s longest established manufacturers of recycled plastic pellets and are committed to recycling plastics and the circular economy in the United Kingdom. They have an opportunity for an Apprentice to join their team in Brandon.


This is a great opportunity within the Engineering Team. You will be part of a small but vital engineering team and will therefore play a key role within the business.

Main responsibilities include:

  • Assist with Planned Maintenance
  • Assist with Machinery Breakdowns
  • Assist with Installation Projects

You will be reporting to the Engineering Manager.

This is an exciting time to join the company and we are committed to providing the environment, training and opportunity for all of our team-members to realise their full potential. We are setting up our apprentice programme to identify and develop the people who will be the future of our business. They will have the opportunity to learn many aspects of the business and enjoy the guidance and support of the senior management of the company.
