Bradbury Apprentice Spotlight: Jason

14th March 2017

“My name is Jason Bagg, I am eighteen years old, and I started an engineering apprenticeship within the Bradbury Group just over a year ago.

After finishing school, I worked over the summer, and realised that I enjoyed hands on work more than being in a classroom. I decided an apprenticeship would be perfect for me and, as I had an interest in engineering, I applied for a trainee scheme in mechanical engineering at HETA.

Whilst at HETA, I learnt all the basic skills I needed to start a career in engineering. I was then offered an apprenticeship at Bradbury, where I hope to continue developing these skills throughout my time in the R&D department.

Since starting at Bradbury, I have already begun to build up my skills in SolidWorks, which is software that we use almost every day. Everything that gets made is modelled inside SolidWorks, so getting to grips with using it comfortably is essential to my mechanical design role.

I have visited every department; learning what each department does, and seeing how the entire company is run. This gave me the opportunity to get an insight into what is involved in making the end products that will reach our customers. During my tour of the factory, I was even taught how to weld in the R&D workshop!

Recently, I was offered the position of Technical Support/Project Engineer, and instantly took up this opportunity. I enjoy this role as I have a lot of contact with customers and get to utilise my SolidWorks skills to produce renders for the marketing department, which are used on the website and in brochures.

Over the next year, I will be completing my NVQ Level 3 qualification, whilst working at Bradbury, and being assessed by HETA. After I have finished my apprenticeship, I hope to secure a permanent position in the R&D department at this award-winning company.”
