Here at Omega, we believe that offering young people an opportunity to flourish, grow & gain experience within work environment is the best way to help them continue their professional development & really get the most from their career. We regularly take on apprentices & interns, as we know that it's a give & take relationship & both sides end up gaining something extremely valuable whether it be knowledge & experience, or a new perspective. Here, one of our two engineer apprentices, Conor, talks us through why he chose an apprenticeship, & how he feels it's helped him develop both personally & within the workplace:

*UPDATE* As we have already received so many fantastic entries, we have decided to offer two prizes, one for the best Pumpkin, & one for the best Pet!
As Halloween is less than a week away, we thought what better than to have a Halloween themed competition, as we love a good contest here at Omega. Our theme this year is 'Pumpkins & Pets', as per the title, & the rules are as follows; Simply take a Halloween inspired photo of either a pumpkin you've carved or a dressed up pet (the spookier, the better!); Please note, we are unable to accept photos of people. Send them to us here at Omega before the closing date on the 31st of October, & we'll pick a shortlist of four (two for each category) which will then be taken to the general public for one final vote. The winners will then be picked & announced on Friday 4th of November, & will be contacted directly by us to organise the prize giving, which will be a lovely box of chocolates to see in November! Please note, entries are going to be accepted from the UK only.
We will be showcasing all entries on our blog, so keep an eye open for your favourites & get ready to vote!

On Monday 10th October, the Omega team had the fantastic opportunity to take part in a team building day at Aerial Extreme, Ripon, North Yorkshire. We all turned up bright & early, wrapped up cosily, as we'd been forewarned that there was potential for any kind of weather that day, & huddled round with our cups of tea & coffee before being split into two teams ('Team A' & 'The A Team'; We like to keep things simple at Omega). The morning was spent carrying out various challenges, some timed, others not, that meant we had to work in our groups to prepare plans & find solutions to overcome the obstacles we'd been faced with.
