Bradbury Apprentice Spotlight: Isabel

15th March 2017

“My name is Isabel Mead, I am seventeen years old, and I joined Bradbury as an apprentice last year.

Whilst at school, I worked part-time before going on to study A Levels at college. However, I was only there for a short amount of time before realising that this path wasn’t for me. After deciding that I wanted to work in the engineering field, I joined HETA on a mechanical engineering course.

At HETA, I learnt skills in mechanical maintenance, hand-fitting, and pneumatics. My main interest was the design aspects of engineering, and I was lucky enough to be offered an apprenticeship in the R&D department at Bradbury.

During my time at Bradbury so far, I have been given tasks such as modelling exit hardware and creating drawings for the other apprentices. The software can be really challenging at times, however, I am already starting to come to terms with SolidWorks!

In my first few weeks, I visited every department in the company in order to get an insight into all the different stages of the work place. It was interesting to see the way each department fills a critical role in one big process.

I enjoy engineering due to the fast-paced environments, the variety of tasks involved, and the many opportunities it presents. After finishing my apprenticeship through HETA, I hope to continue working at Bradbury, and be a part of the ever-expanding company family.”
