I first did work experience at Cavendish Nuclear five years ago and knew then I wanted to join the company. I joined their apprenticeship scheme in September 2014 and have really grown in confidence as a developing professional since I’ve been with them.
I hope to continue with my academic studies when my apprenticeship finishes in September 2018 and complete my degree to become a Mechanical Engineer.
After attending our leadership event held by Simon Bowen, Chief Executive I left with a real insight into the many ways I could improve and develop knowledge within the business through various platforms, such as the recently established Women’s Network. I have also met so many people who continue to support my development and it’s amazing how much support there is for future talent within the business!
I’m currently in my third year of my Advanced Apprentice CAD Design apprenticeship and my current location is at Cavendish Nuclear’s design office Radar Road, in Leicester where no two days are the same. The design office is where engineers bring us conceptual drawings and once we receive them we then model the drawings creating a technical CAD design which they can then work from and can be used as part of the manufacturing process.
I like to get involved with areas outside of the design office as well and I’m very enthusiastic about the company and its targets for the future.
I’m getting more involved in Women’s Network and I am the communication point of contact for our Radar Road site, which involves helping to keep the communications flowing about what’s happening and ensuring people are kept informed.
I am also highly positive for encouraging young people into this industry through STEM activities which I am also very involved with.
