World’s leading engineering company BBA Reman continues to build on successful partnership with North Kent College

One of the world’s leading automotive remanufacturers, BBA Reman visited BTEC Student Group Diploma E&E Engineering recently to recruit apprentices for their global company.

Jack Short, UK Country Manager, and a former NKC student once again offered students the opportunity to gain further skills and possibly gain an Electronic Technician apprenticeship with the firm. The company combines engineering expertise with in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry to provide an affordable and reliable alternative to buying new electronic car parts.

Jack Short, studied engineering at North Kent College for 2 years when BBA Reman visited the college to offer an apprenticeship and he was successful. Jack then joined BBA in April 2012 as an apprentice and became a technician in September 2013. He has since had further promotions and is now a UK Country Manager; where he is responsible for the engineering work carried out across all UK workshops.

Jack said “North Kent College gave me the skills and knowledge to pursue a rewarding career and BBA Reman gave me the opportunity to put these skills into practise within a thriving business. Returning to the college allowed me to acknowledge the work that was carried out by the Engineering staff, during my time as an attending student.” BBA Reman is based locally in Rochester, Kent, however since it first opened in 1998 the company has have expanded rapidly and today is an international company with offices or operations in 11 countries spread across three continents with over 200 staff. They are rapidly expanding by 25% each year.

The engineering employer has visited North Kent College for the past four years now. Last year they recruited four full-time students, and this year they were looking for five. They consistently return to the college to recruit their apprentices and are able to offer a fast career progression for students. Steve Crockford, Assistant Curriculum Manager, Engineering and Electrical said “The opportunities that BBA Reman give our students lead to career progression through to recognised career paths.”
