Shaun Keetley, Technical Apprentice at our Wakefield office
I never thought I could learn as much as I have during my apprenticeship. The support I’ve received from people in the office has been a real highlight for me. I often have to work off my own initiative but know my Technical Manager and the rest of the team are always on hand to support me.
During the scheme I’ve come across a wide range of technical matters as well as being presented with challenges from Site Managers that we need to overcome. I can already tell that this experience will be invaluable once I finish the apprenticeship and continue my career.
I can now create a CAD drawing from scratch, issue it to site and then watch it being used as a working drawing. It’s a great feeling to see my hard work being used by others.
if I had to give one piece of advice to anyone interested in the scheme it would be to be fully committed to your new role as you will be really busy and have to be fully focussed at all times. However, if you put the effort in you’ll be rewarded with valuable experience, make new contacts in the industry and make friends for life.
