Through Life Support Engineering Apprentice Engineering Services
I’m currently working on the Scout Ajax project. This is a driver trainer simulator for the Scout vehicle, which is a tracked light armoured vehicle. It’s exciting as the simulator is full motion and it’s like driving the real vehicle. The whole system has been built on site so I’ve been able to get hands-on with the equipment. I’ve also learnt a lot about how what I do contributes to the overall project.
ENGAGE YOUR PASSION
It’s a great opportunity if you’re at an early stage in your career as you get to experience diverse projects and work which keep you interested and engaged. You work with many different people who give you a wide view of the world and pass on some valuable knowledge.
LEARN ABOUT YOU
I loved going on the development programme in the Lake District. You get to do activities, such as camping and building rafts, and it teaches you some useful skills. I learnt some important lessons. For instance, when they said I’d be climbing England’s highest mountain, I didn’t think I’d be able to do it. Standing on top of it taught me not to underestimate my abilities.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
I helped towards a spare bid – and we won it. This gave me a great sense of achievement. My hard work contributed to the profit of the business.
