dB Broadcast continues to expand its capabilities with the appointment of two new recruits to join its permanent team.

Mitchell Mead and George Edgerley have joined the company, initially as trainee wiremen, and following a planned training programme are expected to become installation technicians, working on a variety of client projects.

dB is one of the few SIs to employ and train its own wiring technicians, and the company has been doing this for more than 20 years. Wiring trainees are recruited from within the local community and the programme includes an initial period of bench work followed by one-to-one training alongside experienced staff, and lastly supervised onsite work. In house training is supplemented by more academic courses leading to recognised technical qualifications.

In the short term, Mead and Edgerley will be travelling around the UK as part of several teams working on a large project associated with the UK switchover to HD. They report to Paul Turner, Production Manager.

“We are delighted to welcome George and Mitchell to the dB team as part of our continued recruitment of trainees”, said Tom Swan, Sales & Marketing Director. “Their interpersonal skills and positive approach will be a great asset as we manage multiple large client projects.”
