Delcam adds over 20 students to Birmingham staff
CADCAM developer Delcam has added more than 20 students to the staff at its Birmingham headquarters in the last few months. The latest recruits include new graduates in permanent positions and students wanting to gain employment experience during their courses that have been given fixed-term placements. In both cases, the additions have included posts in software development, engineering support and marketing.
This is the third year running that Delcam has added more than 20 students to its Birmingham staff. The importance of the company’s graduate programme reflects the rapid growth in its global sales, both in its established manufacturing area and in the newer healthcare markets. Earlier this month, Delcam announced that it had achieved record half-year sales in the opening six months of this year, the fifth consecutive six-month period in which it has set new record levels of sales. In addition, the company was rated recently by CIMdata as the world’s leading specialist supplier of CAM software for the twelfth consecutive year.
"As might be expected, we have offered some of the new permanent positions to students that have previously completed placements at Delcam,” commented Software Development Manager, Richard Barrett. "The placement system works well for both the students and the company. The work experience helps the students’ credibility when they apply for jobs at end of their courses, while it gives the company a comprehensive opportunity to assess their potential as full-time employees.”
"We are planning a further round of placements and graduate recruitment for next year and should have the details on our website (www.delcam.com/general/about/jobs.asp) by the end of September,” he added. "We will again be looking for first class applicants for all our departments, with assessment days planned in Birmingham over the coming months.”
