My name is Megan Marks and I work for Ashtead Plant Hire in Boston. I chose a plant maintenance apprenticeship with A-Plant because my passion is fixing things and in my apprenticeship, I maintain and fix machinery of all shapes and sizes. I really enjoy the apprenticeship because I like the hands on, practical element especially at college where we can practice on the machinery that we use in the service centre.
Once I finish my apprenticeship, I would like to mentor future apprentices who start with A-Plant to help them develop their skills and knowledge and share my experience with them. I really would encourage more females to join the Industry as I believe it’s a rewarding career choice and I would recommend an apprenticeship because you get to learn a valuable trade and earn a salary at the same time.
