Local manufacturer Pronto Paints seeks intern for summer

Pronto Paints, a local specialist industrial paint manufacturer, is looking to take on a paid intern over the summer, from July to September 2019. The internship will give a local undergraduate or A-level student the opportunity to improve their CV and gain insight into the manufacturing world.

Founded in 1989, Pronto Paints is a friendly, family-run company based in Holmewood, Chesterfield. Pronto Paints currently boasts over 300 products and serves a number of industries across the UK. They are always growing and looking at new ways to innovate the business.

The chosen candidate will work on rotation across the different divisions of the company including the marketing, administration, laboratory and production departments. This will allow them to gain as much experience as possible, as well as give them an understanding of the different jobs available in a manufacturing company like Pronto Paints.

Speaking about the new scheme, Managing Director David Beckford commented:

“Many businesses spend a lot of time worrying about where the next generation of talented people will come from, so with this internship we hope to do something about that situation. It will be a great experience for a student who is unsure about what they wish to do next and would like to sample different areas of a business as well as boost their CV.”

The chosen candidate will be expected to work 30 hours a week, at an hourly rate of up to £9/hour.

No previous experience is necessary, but Pronto Paints is ideally looking for someone who:

  • Lives around Chesterfield and can get to the Holmewood Industrial Estate every day
  • Has experience using Microsoft software such as Word, Excel and Access
  • Has a minimum grade C in English and Maths at GCSE level
  • Has a ‘can do’ attitude and positive outlook to life

As part of your application Pronto Paints would like to learn what makes you the best candidate for the internship, so please include a covering letter outlining what you hope to learn from the experience.
