Mechanical Design Apprentice - Ishida Europe

My favourite job was my first ever role at Ishida Europe, I was just 16 years old at the time and I was able to learn a lot very quickly. I was surrounded by an inclusive and supportive team who always made me feel welcome from the first day. During this position I was also awarded "First Year Apprentice of the Year" and "Runner-Up First Year Apprentice of the Year" in my College and Regional Apprentice Awards, which was a fantastic achievement.

I'm Megan, I'm 22 years old and I'm from Solihull, UK. I have been working in the Engineering industry for six years, with experience in aerospace and large scale equipment manufacturing. 

My interests are reading, football and gaming. I used to play semi-professional women's football up until 2015. 

I have five dogs, Jake (Cairn Terrier), Mac (Frenchie), Stella (Frenchie), Reddington (Frenchie) and Missy (Shorkie) and enjoy spending my weekends taking them for long walks in the countryside. 

English, French

Always be open to learning new things and taking part in experiences that are outside of your comfort zone, you'll never know what you may learn about yourself, others or the industry you work in.

Photo Of My Education

I really enjoyed my design and technology lessons at school as I was able to try new things and be creative. For my final project I designed and built a table entirely from recycled cans and bottle tops.
I didn't overly enjoy my RE lessons at school, however I now realise that they enabled me to explore other peoples beliefs and points of view which comes very much in handy in the workplace.

More about me

Communication is a very important skill to have in Engineering, but not just in verbal communication, visual and written communication via emails and technical drawings is also very important.
Confidence is also a good skill to have, however, confidence comes with time and experience in a role, the more experience you have, the more confident you'll feel.
A strong maths and IT background is also vital when considering an engineering career, but this can also be built on, I was not always the most confident or able mathematician but I developed these skills during my career.

I developed my skills by getting involved with every opportunity I could. Also, deciding to become an apprentice allowed me to study along side gathering on the job experience which was a big factor in my skill development.

I wanted to become a Forensic Pathologist when I was still at school.

If I was to start again I would definitely complete my apprenticeship at Ishida Europe, transferring apprenticeships allowed me to complete my degree but I enjoyed my time and experience far greater at Ishida Europe.
