Highlight your career progression within MTE.

The highlight of my career so far is successfully completing my HNC qualification after 2 years of studying at SWDT. This is something I would not have been able to achieve without the support from MTE and the whole team.

Completing this qualification marked the end of my 4-year apprenticeship which provided me with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively carry out my current role.

Proudest moment at MTE?

My proudest moment at MTE so far has been successfully completing my apprenticeship programme and subsequently being offered my current job role – a Draughtsman. The reason this is my proudest moment is because from my very first day at MTE to the last as an apprentice, I grew significantly not only as an engineer but as a person too

Best part of your job?

Working amongst a great team who have extensive experience is definitely the best part of my job. I work amongst a team with lots of engineering and draughting knowledge – working alongside my colleagues therefore allows me to constantly improve my own skills.

I also enjoy the problem-solving aspect of my current role and seeing the finalised product after working hard on a project for a long period of time.
