This week, we were pleased to support local secondary school, Monkton Wood Academy in Taunton, Somerset, by providing a work experience placement for one of their pupils.

Den joined our Taunton Service Centre for a week, to experience first-hand how Rotec operates. Under the direction of Charlie Lewis, Rotec’s Warehouse Supervisor, Den spent time working in the warehouse and goods in department, before being welcomed into our electrical bay, workshops and technical design department.

“My highlight of the week was how welcoming and friendly everyone is at Rotec. I enjoyed my experience within the electrical bay and design office the most,” comments Den.

His first time experiencing a real-world workplace, Den chose to accept the placement at Rotec so that he could gain an insight into electrical and design engineering, alongside experiencing what it is like to work in a business. Den is planning on continuing with either electrical or design engineering after secondary school, with an ambition to become a qualified commercial pilot in the future.

Den ended his week work experience in Rotec’s Technical Design office. Using SolidWorks design programme and the company’s 3D printer, Den designed and printed his own keyring as a memento of his time at Rotec.

Beverly Chalmers, HR Administrator at Rotec says,

“We were delighted to be able to welcome Den to Rotec for his work experience placement.

“We always aim to provide valuable, insightful opportunities for schools and to help inspire the next generation of engineers.”
