Our Apprenticeship Programme is now delivering practical and purposeful training to 10 young people and follows a proud company tradition of investment in training and education.
This opportunity to ‘grow our own workforce’ addresses skills shortages and strengthens our workforce – delivering a win-win for Hosokawa and apprentices. It has enabled us to attract new talent spread across engineering, sales, laboratory and test station and process services departments giving apprentices the best possible opportunity for a job offer from a company they know.

‘I started an apprenticeship at Hosokawa Micron 2 years ago, working in the Test Centre and Laboratory whilst studying at Wirral Metropolitan College where she won ‘Student of the Year’. I now undertake all the powder and particle tests in the Test Centre using a range of analytical equipment’.
Jack Butler – Mechanical Engineering Apprentice
‘After studying at college for a year gaining my NVQ Level 2, I now have a 3 year engineering apprenticeship at Hosokawa. I like working here, there are opportunities to travel, the people are friendly, helpful and keen to show me how to do things and they trust me do lots of tasks on my own’.
