Ben New, fabrication apprentice, is one of the company’s latest rising stars. Completing his first year of training with local engineering college HETA, Ben was recently awarded Apprentice of the Year by the college, after achieving a distinction in each of the ten exams he sat as part of his course.

Ray Johnson, Director of Intelect’s Grimsby branch said, “We’re really proud to see Ben being commended by the college for his hard work and successes. As a company, we’re really keen to ensure that we continue to support the next generation of engineers, so it’s always great when you see talent like Ben coming through.

He continued, “We’re looking forward to supporting Ben in the next stage of his apprenticeship, where he will now spend three years in our workshop gaining valuable hands on, industry experience.”

As a celebration of his success, the Director’s at Intelect presented Ben with a £200 tool voucher, helping him to kick start his tool kit prior to his transition into the workshop. At the presentation, they were also joined by former Director and grandfather of Ben, Phill Bodsworth, who was a driver of the business’s skills pledge back in 2011.

Phill said, “It was great to be able to come back to Intelect today to mark Ben’s achievements. To keep the family ties going within the business is great to see, and it’s encouraging to know that the company is still investing so much in the next generation of engineers.”

Intelect currently employs five apprentices, with two recently qualifying this year, and is it clear that they have remained committed when it comes to supporting the young people of Grimsby into meaningful career paths.

Intelect Supports St Mary’s Football Club 25 Years On

intelect sponsors football

St Mary’s Football Club has had a positive start to their season following the announcement of a new three-year sponsorship with local engineering company, Intelect.

The news comes almost a quarter of a century on from when the two organisations first crossed paths, as back in 1998, during Intelect’s second year of operation, St Mary’s were the company’s first grassroots sponsorship.

Both the club and Intelect celebrate significant anniversary’s this year, with St Mary’s Football Club celebrating their 75th, and Intelect their 25th, meaning there was no better time for the two to rekindle their partnership.

Now competing in the North Riding Football League Premier Division, a registered FA Level 7 league, St Mary’s is still continuing to provide community adult football in the Middlesbrough area from their base at the Kings Academy in Coulby Newham.

With no junior set-up infrastructure or large financial investment, the club have had to work hard to maintain their existence, relying on the generosity of local sponsorships, player fees and competition honours to keep it afloat.

Having been involved with the club since 2004, St Mary’s Chairman, Tony Wilson was thrilled to receive Intelect’s support saying, “Receiving the sponsorship from Intelect, who have been a local business in Middlesbrough for 25 years, fits really well with our own values as a club.

“On our 75-year anniversary as a football club, which has its own established history in Middlesbrough’s grassroots football community, it is amazing that Intelect have reconnected with us and agreed to support the continuation of this long-standing football club”.

Intelect’s Managing Director, Fran Cormican recently attended the club’s anniversary celebration, which saw players from all generations of the club’s history attend. At the event, Fran was presented with a framed shirt from the team as a thanks for the company’s support.

Fran said, “Supporting our local community is something we’re really passionate about. It’s great to see St Mary’s still succeeding as a club and giving hundreds of adults across Teesside an opportunity to enjoy themselves through grass roots football. We wish them all the best for the season!”

Intelect will remain the clubs main sponsor for three seasons.

Triple Award Success for Intelect as they Celebrate 25th Anniversary

Awards 25 years

In the same week that engineering company Intelect celebrated its 25th anniversary, the team were also delighted to bag three awards for their commitments to apprenticeships and training.

The first award arrived at the grand final of the North East Business Awards, where Intelect narrowly pipped Unipres and Newcastle Building Society to the Apprenticeships, Training and Skills Award, which was sponsored and judged by the CIPD.

Intelect’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Lily Brothwood was there to accept the award on the evening, and just four days later it was Director, John Thompson’s turn on stage at the North East Region National Apprenticeship Awards, where Intelect received not one, but two awards.

Taking place at the Hilton in Newcastle, Intelect were crowned regional winners in the SME Employer of the Year category, and they also received an unexpected award for Recruitment Excellence of the Year.

Now in their 19th year, the National Apprenticeship Awards are England’s biggest apprenticeship award ceremony, and following their regional victory, Intelect will now go on to represent the North East against nine other regional winners at the grand final in London later this year.

Established in 1997, Intelect launched their apprenticeship programme just one year after opening their doors, and have continued to remain committed to supporting apprentices and their employees ever since.

Intelect’s Managing Director, Fran Cormican was thrilled to hear about the latest flurry of awards, saying, “It’s been a monumental week for us as a company, and it’s been great to look back and reflect on the last 25 years and see just how far we have come.

“Having grown the company from a small team of six, to now having over 120 employees is enough of an achievement for us, but to also receive both regional and national recognition for our commitment to our employees is fantastic.

He continued, “We wouldn’t be where we are today without our team, and we are looking forward to celebrating our victories and our 25th anniversary together with them this month.”

Earlier this year, Intelect were ranked 17th in the Apprenticeships Top 50 SMEs in England, and this year took on a record number of electrical apprentices.

Success For Intelect At The North East Business Awards Grand Final

Celebrations are in order following Intelect’s latest victory at the Grand Final of the North East Business Awards in the Apprenticeships, Training and Skills category.

Up against the likes of Unipres and Newcastle Building Society, Intelect had some tough competition on the night, with both businesses having excellent programmes when it comes to apprenticeships and training.

Judges from the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personal Development) commended all of the finalists prior to presenting the award, and highlighted just how committed the North East region is when it comes to apprenticeships and training.

Marketing and Communications Manager, Lily Brothwood was there to pick up the award on the evening, she said, “This award is testimony to the years of commitment Intelect has given to its apprenticeships and employees.

“Of the 25 years that the company has been running, 24 of them have been dedicated to growing an apprenticeship programme that provides local people with solid career paths, and we are proud to say that over 50% of the apprentices we have trained are still with the company today.”

“To be up against such tough competition and still come out on top is truly fantastic, and we look forward to continuing to grow our programme and be an advocate for apprenticeships alongside other likeminded businesses in our area.”

The award comes in the same month that Intelect took on a record number of electrical apprentices in their yearly intake, bringing their total number of apprentices up to 28 in Teesside.

They were also recognised in the Apprenticeships Top 50 SMEs earlier in the year, ranking 17th in England for their award-winning programme.

Covering a variety of capabilities and educational levels, there really is something for everybody when it comes to their apprenticeship opportunities.

Other big Teesside winners on the night included Cleveland Containers, who bagged the coveted Company of the Year award, and Great North Air Ambulance for the Services Award.

Intelect Announces Record Apprentice Intake

Since 1998, apprenticeships have been the building blocks of Intelect’s workforce, and this year, as the company marks its 25th anniversary, they’re also celebrating a second milestone by hiring a record number of electrical apprentices in one cohort.

Known for their award-winning training programme, the company welcomes nine ambitious apprentices to their team this September, eight of whom will be studying electrical engineering.

In total, Intelect now employs 28 apprentices across a range of educational levels and disciplines, covering everything from accountancy and design, to mechanical and electrical engineering.

Intelect director, John Thompson explained why consistently hiring apprentices has been a non-negotiable for the company over the last 24 years, “As an employer, apprenticeships have been one of the driving forces behind our business growth.

“They’ve enabled us to widen our business capabilities to service a broader range of clients, all whilst sheltering us from the skills gap that our industry is unfortunately notorious for.

“As we adjust back to normal life following the pandemic, we feel that now, more than ever, it is particularly important that we support young people into meaningful career paths.”

Intelect works closely with six training providers to deliver their apprenticeship programme, collaborating with Middlesbrough College, JTL, and Teesside University to name a few.

Principal of Middlesbrough College, Zoe Lewis said, “Companies like Intelect are so important to our local community. A business born out of local people who remain committed to supporting and developing local talent.

“We have been delighted to have worked in partnership with Intelect for many years and it has been a pleasure watching their business grow from strength to strength as young people flourish and develop in their new roles.

“This latest record intake of apprentices cements their deserved place as a recent winner at the North East Business Awards and it has been an absolute honour for our team here to have played a small part in their great success.”

The new intake follows on from Intelect being crowned winners of the Apprenticeships, Training and Skills Award at the Teesside North East Business Awards in June. They will face Unipres and Newcastle Building Society in the Grand Final at Hardwick Hall on Thursday 29th September.

KP Snacks and Intelect join forces for Charity Family Fun Day

Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun

Middlesbrough-based engineering company, Intelect recently joined forces with long-term client and food manufacturer, KP Snacks, in order to host an employee family fun day and raise money for two local charities, Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun EVS.

The event was held at Norton Stockton Ancients Football ground, and saw over 250 people attend, with a grand total of £1,400 being raised throughout the day of fundraising.

Alongside there being a range of fun activities, the two companies also took part in a seven-a-side football tournament, which resulted in the Intelect Blue team coming out on top following a hard battle in the final against KP Snacks.

After working together for over 20 years, the two companies decided to partner up to raise vital funds for their chosen charities, all of whom rely heavily on donations and volunteers to operate their invaluable services.

Due to the pandemic, Intelect and KP had to hold off on their previous plans to host the day for a second time in 2019, however both companies were pleased when they got the go ahead for this year.

The £1,400 that was raised has since been split evenly between Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun EVS, an amount both charities were thrilled to accept.

Anne Cooling, Head of Corporate for Teesside Hospice said, “The recent family fun day hosted by Intelect and KP Snacks was enjoyed by everyone who attended. The donations raised from the fundraising activities will go towards supporting people and families who have been affected by a terminal illness.

“These donations will help Teesside Hospice ensure people receive the highest level of specialist palliative care and to stay as independent as long as possible. Teesside Hospice values our corporate partnership with Intelect and we hope this partnership continues for many years ahead.”

Gill Dixon, Secretary at Bloodrun EVS echoed Anne’s thanks, saying, “As a small local charity, Bloodrun EVS (Emergency Voluntary Service) is manned entirely by unpaid volunteers and is dependent on the generosity of local businesses and the public to continue to provide its free-of-charge urgent transportation service to, predominantly, our local NHS Trusts.

She continued, “This donation from Intelect and KP Snacks is most welcome and very gratefully received and will be an amazing help towards our current goal, which is to replace one of our aging vehicles.”

Intelect’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Lily Brothwood led the organisation of the fun day, she said, “It was fantastic to see so many people come together to support two fantastic local charities. Bloodrun and Teesside Hospice provide invaluable services to our local community, so we were really proud to be able to once again partner with KP Snacks to support them.

“As a Corporate Partner of Teesside Hospice, we understand the vital role they play when it comes to supporting patients who are suffering with terminal illness and their families. Selected by our employees as our charity of choice for 2022, we felt it was only right to make them our chosen charity for the fun day.”

Intelect continues with its award success, adding a further accolade to their tally after receiving the Silver Employer Recognition Award from the Armed Forces Covenant.

Created to ensure the Forces community are treated fairly and have equal opportunity, the Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation to those who have served and their families.

The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their covenant pledges.

Through a 3-tier approach of bronze, silver and gold awards, the scheme recognises the different levels of commitment provided by employers.
As a forces friendly employer, Intelect Director, John Thompson was delighted to receive the news about their silver award, he said, “We are very proud to have received the Silver Employer Recognition Award from the Armed Forces Covenant, building on our previous commitments.

“As a company we have supported the forces community for many years, and we will continue to provide opportunities and advocate to other businesses about the positive impact this can have.”

Brigadier Paul Baker, Chief Executive, North of England RFCA said, “There has always been great support for the Armed Forces within the North East of England but the growing number of companies prepared to publicly demonstrate this support is truly heartening, especially in such challenging times.

“These Employer Recognition Scheme awards are a recognition of the backing and encouragement provided to their employees who are also Reservists, Adult Volunteers within the Cadet Forces, Veterans and their families. Well done to all.”

The award follows not long after Intelect hosted the North East Armed Forces Business Forum, which saw over 20 regional business come together to discuss how they can better support those who serve, or have served, and their families.

Having signed the Covenant initially back in 2019, Intelect have continued to make steps to improve their support of the force’s community, building on their Bronze Employer Recognition Award which they received two years ago.

Going forward, Intelect plans to continue growing its support of the force’s community, and hopes to obtain the Gold Award in 2023.

Engineering company, Intelect celebrates a double whammy, ranking in the Apprenticeships Top 50 SME Employers for 2022 just days after triumphing at the Teesside North East Business Awards in the Apprenticeships, Training and Skills category.

The Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers list celebrates small to medium enterprises for their vital contribution and commitments to apprenticeships, with Intelect taking spot number 17.

Launched at the same time as the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list, the two leader boards are designed to showcase the very best of England’s apprenticeship employers, with those listed recognised for providing some of the most successful apprenticeship programmes over the previous 12 months.

Apprenticeships have been at the heart of Intelect’s business model since 1997, just a year after their launch 25 years ago, and they have continued to grow their commitments ever since, training over 150 apprentices in that time and increasing the number of courses they offer.

Currently employing 33 apprentices across a range of disciplines, and with a retention rate of 54%, the Top 50 ranking comes only six days after their win at the Teesside North East Business Awards, where Intelect fought off tough competition to scoop the Apprenticeships, Training and Skills Award.

As a member of the Apprenticeship Ambassador Network, Alan Wallace, North East Network Coordinator was delighted to see Intelect representing the region and the network, saying “We want to congratulate Intelect on their recent award win and achieving 17th in the Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers list.

“This shows just how much Intelect values and supports apprenticeships as a recruitment method, as well as a learning and development route for their existing employees too, which is equally as important”.

Intelect works in close partnership with a number of local training and development providers to deliver their award-winning programmes. Principal of Hartlepool College of Further Education, Darren Hankey said, “We are delighted that Intelect has received so much recognition for its approach to apprenticeships. The company is known for its high standards and the recognition is richly deserved.

He continued, “Having high standards is also a part of our DNA at the College, where we’ve been supporting organisations since 1849. It is a privilege to work with Intelect and to be entrusted to train its fabrication, product design and environmental apprentices.”

Intelect Managing Director, and former apprentice, Fran Cormican was blown away with the recent news, saying “We are truly delighted to receive such fantastic recognition, and to be ranked 17th out of over 500 employers who entered is incredible. Apprenticeships are, and have always been, at the heart of Intelect and our ‘train to retain’ ethos has allowed us to grow and bring a wealth of innovation and diversity to our business for many years.

“That being said, we feel it’s hugely important that we, and other businesses alike, continue to advocate the benefits and opportunities that apprenticeships can provide, to ensure as many people as possible continue to have a pathway to succeed”.

Intelect will represent Teesside the Grand Final of the North East Business Awards on the 29th September at Hardwick Hall, where they will face Northumberland & Tyneside winners, Newcastle Building Society and Durham, Sunderland & South Tyneside winners, Unipres UK Ltd.
