"I joined Megger in 2007 after
leaving a part-time job at Argos.
I only planned to work here for a
few years, but by then I'd settled
in. I enjoyed my job, but it wasn't
a career so I started to look for
courses that interested me. I
enjoyed mechanical engineering,
so when the chance arose to enrol
on a mechanical apprenticeship
in 2015, I jumped at it.
"I am also working towards
becoming a production manager.
My working life and academic
career have pretty much taken
over my time, but I can see
the massive benefits that are
waiting for me, which makes all
my hard work worthwhile."
