This week we celebrate apprenticeships - could you be our next star?

 An Atlantic Pumps Fitter working on a pump 

Did you know that this week is National Apprenticeship Week?

We’ve always been committed to investing in young people and believe in the value of apprenticeships. Mike Young, Evan Biggin, Laurence Ward and Riegan Woodhead-Tinsley are testament to this and all have become key members of the Atlantic team.

Here, Mike and Evan talk about why they enjoy being engineers and the skills they apply to their jobs.

Mike Young

“As an engineer I use problem solving and team working skills while also being able to work well under pressure in order to make me a good engineer.

“The job is challenging and very rewarding. Also, no two projects are exactly the same keeps every day interesting and gives you opportunities to learn new things."

Evan Biggin

"The thing about engineering that I love the most is the fact that every day is different, there's a new problem to solve and new jobs that need doing that aren't always easy.

"As an engineer I use effective technical skills, creativity, pressure management and various other skills on a day-to-day basis to make me a good engineer."
