Interview with Joel Kirby, Apprentice Electrical Enginner

Joel is currently on an apprenticeship with us, and is looking forward to completing his qualification and staying with Bateman to progress his career in the future...

My role at Bateman is...
Apprentice Electrical Engineer.

A typical day for me at Bateman involves...
Various duties in the cab bay, including making up nose cones and wiring looms. My day does vary so no 2 days are the same, which is something I like.

The most enjoyable aspect of my current role is...
Knowing that I play a part in every machine that leaves the factory.

Joining Bateman has taught me that...
Every person in the company has an important role in production, even as an apprentice I have been given many responsibilities and it feels good to have the confidence placed on me.

I have learned from the people around me that...
There are no silly questions, it is better to ask if you’re unsure of something or don’t understand..

Before I joined Bateman I was...
An bartender.

I would like my career path to progress...
I would like to be responsible for more tasks in the factory, achieve my qualification and hopefully progress within the company...

I would recommend an apprenticeship at Bateman because...
They offer a good work environment; everyone is very friendly and won’t hesitate to offer a helping hand or tell you quicker/better ways of doing things, the days go by very quickly here also. The best advice I have ever been given is...
Don’t rush your work, getting the job done correctly is more important.
