We were really well looked after throughout the apprenticeship and I learnt a lot about networking, which was something I wasn’t expecting, but is so useful for my role now.

I’m involved in a number of preventative maintenance projects and I get to work with machining centre machines and robots within the fully automated production block line. I love doing something that I enjoy, while getting qualifications and paid for the work that I do.
