During June, we welcomed two Year 10 students from The Castle School, Taunton for a week’s work experience. 

Mason and Charlie, who have recently completed their first year of GCSEs, are both interested in exploring a career in mechanical engineering. Mason commented,

“I’m interested in mechanical engineering because I think I would like an active hands-on job. When I finish school, I want to study Mechnical Engineering at college.”

Both students spent two days with our mechanical engineering team, one day with our technical design and electrical teams respectively, followed by a day split between our warehouse and hose bay. Charlie said,

“My highlight of the week was seeing how the team repair hydraulic cylinders and carry out pressure testing.”

Beverly Chalmers, HR Administrator at Rotec says,

“We were delighted to be able to welcome Mason and Charlie from The Castle School for their Year 10 work experience placement. As a business, we place great importance on inspiring the next generation of engineers by providing valuable, insightful opportunities for students.”
