A JCB APPRENTICE who is working at the cutting edge of engineering has scooped a top industry honour. Engineering degree apprentice Nihal Dhillon was crowned Engineering Employer Apprentice of the Year at the Group Training Association England awards ceremony held at The Manufacturing Technology Centre, Coventry.

Mr Dhillon, who works at JCB’s World HQ in Rocester, joined the prestigious JCB training scheme in 2019 and is now in the final year of his apprenticeship, working on high-profile development projects such as the new JCB hydrogen-powered machinery.

Commenting on his award, Mr Dhillon said: ‘I’m honoured to have been given the Engineering Apprentice of the Year Award and I have to thank everyone at JCB who has made this possible for me.

‘In just a few short years JCB have given me some brilliant opportunities. After graduating I am keen to spend time in other JCB factories around the world to get more international experience then, longer term, I would like to become a chartered engineer, and progress through the business as high as possible.’

JCB early careers talent manager Neil Fowkes said: ‘Nihal is a great example of what can be achieved through hard work and determination. He is studying for his degree at the same time as working on really challenging projects within the business and he thoroughly deserves this recognition.’
