Inspiring Careers: The Automotive Industry


so work within IC here at fort more specifically I’m an agile analyst so well that basically means is I’m involved in both the technical aspect of software as well as the business more customer-facing aspect is also I get to work with people all over the world actually on a daily basis at Ford at the moment I’m in the training center I just getting myself ready for my job brows and shining and sort of testing different pieces of equipment and then from there we’ll be going over to Dan from plant which is where we do add full-time job role I’m currently taking part in an engineering apprenticeship for Ford Motor Company first to use if the apprenticeship would be at a training center followed by at the end being here at dunton I didn’t get the grades that I was actually hoping for when I left school and but I know I’ve always known I wanted to be involved in technology and and have a career and I see activity which actually meant that I went back and completed some more education a bit later on down the line and had a look around and and board was one of the great companies that was offering fantastic career in IT and Orion today I never thought I’d be doing this role looking back at it now when I was younger I couldn’t imagine working on cars being an engineer when I come out of school I wanted to work for C’s I went in did a horse management at college and then I went off and started being a groom and I hated it hated it so much and I still didn’t know what I wanted to do and it was only when my dad suggested this apprenticeship scheme I thought I’ll have a look see what it’s like but still you have that dirty Mac – of cars it’s engineering I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing but I got into the role and I absolutely love it it’s so different I do different things every day and it’s such a change for me but it’s a nice change what really inspires me on this job is working with technology that’s ever-changing this industry is changing more than ever and seeing the product develop is quite what inspires me is the fact that I get to come into my job every day and I love it I love the people I work with everyone’s so friendly and it’s something different and every day it’s something different this industry is really great to work in there’s a lot of aspects that we can all get involved in so I’d go for it for anyone that’s looking at getting into this industry including girls and I think especially girls it is a good chance and when I first looked at it you always think it’s gonna be man based engineering cars you think it’s just gonna be all men standing around looking at a vehicle pulling it apart you need big muscles it really isn’t and don’t worry about getting your hands dirty I’ve still got nails so you don’t have to worry about that and it’s not all about getting your hands in and dirty it’s about thinking and using your brain and sometimes they say you need the two perspectives there is a different input that girls can bring into the engineering industry so it’s nice for anyone that actually has an interest there to bring it forward an open mind enthusiasm and the willingness to learn actually is probably one of the key things I’d advise and but aside from that I can guarantee you have enough for my career in the future I can imagine myself being able to sit there and look at a problem and just go I don’t have to fix it I know what I need to do and I think looking at what I used to do and what I’m doing now I feel like my aspirations I can reach anything I can do it on and there’s always a chance to change and there’s always a chance to completely just go anywhere you
