Three years ago Rob Johnson joined Worsley Plant to start his apprenticeship in Engineering.  Last week he proudly qualified achieving an NVQ Level 3 in Plant Construction, and is now ready to take on his full time role as a Workshop Technician.  Rob, from nearby Northwich, joined Worsley Plant in November 2012.  His apprenticeship involved both studying at Reaseheath College in Nantwich and putting theory into practice at our Workshop in Middlewich.   He learnt a range of skills including the fabricating, hydraulic and mechanical elements of engineering.

At Worsley Plant he has particularly enjoyed doing full rebuilds of attachments.  He loves problem solving so taking apart an old or damaged attachment to find how it works and refurbishing it for sale or hire is what he enjoys most.   The downside to this though is the mess and getting covered in oil and grease!

Worsley Plant are delighted that they have their first fully trained apprentice and are looking forward to welcoming Rob as a full time Engineer and developing his role with the company, ensuring that he continues to develop his skills and experience within the industry.  He’s an asset to the team and having invested in his studies we want to offer him a promising future with us.  We also look forward to welcoming more apprentices in to join us.

Rob says: “I’m really proud I’ve qualified and all the hard work has paid off.  I’m looking forward to progressing my career with Worsley Plant and getting stuck into the job on a full time basis.  I can’t wait to start putting my skills into practice, not to mention earning some decent money now!”
