Have your say

FOUR men from Doncaster have plenty to celebrate after their careers were boosted by a coal recovery firm.

RecyCoal, which specialises in the recovery of waste coal sites, has appointed one qualified apprentice to the position of mobile plant engineer and taken on a further three as trainees.

Maintenance engineer Nathan Tuck, aged 22, from Conisbrough, has completed a four-year apprenticeship in engineering maintenance.

Sam Jackson, 18, Michael Lindley 18, and Greg Bennett 17, all from Doncaster, have been taken on as apprentices at the firm.

Sales and marketing manager David Stafford said: “The expansion of the company lies in the quality of our employees.

“It is essential we continue to invest, not only in equipment but the skills needed by our employees to support the company’s worldwide expansion programme.”

RecyCoal, based at Lakeside and Carcroft, is working on projects throughout the UK.

It removes coal and restores sites to a state which is seen as in keeping with the surrounding landscape.

Nathan said he was looking forward to starting work.
