It was an easy choice; I have an interest in cars and how they work and I love being hands on and working practically.
A typical day in work never looks the same and it depends on what area of the bodyshop I work in. If I'm working in MET, I will ask the Mainly strip and refit including exterior and interior trim and assessing any extra damage. Carrying out mechanical work and wheel alignments. Sometimes I carry out repairs and prepare panels and repair work for painting.
I mainly work with Dave and Scott; I assist them with their tasks and they assist me with my own. I consider them both to be friends and I look forward to working with them day to day.
Patience and resilience.
As a woman, taking the leap into an apprenticeship area that is mainly male as it was quite daunting.
Learn the theory of how and why things work, it makes fixing them easier!
Still working within the automotive industry, be that still in the repair sector or elsewhere.
