Began as an apprentice at a lock making company (Pickersgill Kaye in Hunslet). After 12 months (in 2008) I was made redundant and quickly found employment at a flexible hose manufacturer (FTL in Morley) and completed a 4 year apprenticeship. Once I finished my apprenticeship and passed my BTEC in Mechanical Engineering I went on to do my HNC. During this I was promoted to Quality and Health & Safety manager before moving to Cutwel over 5 years ago.

My engineering career started at 13 working  school holidays and weekends in the machine shop at my father’s engineering company in Sheffield, where I did everything from scrapping out machines to working a Herberet 2C.

My working life started in 1990 with a technical apprenticeship at a large engineering company in Sheffield (now called Davy Markham). I then moved to a sub division of theirs in the design office, working on new and existing designs for rolling mill guide equipment.

I left in 1995 to work at my fathers engineering company which he unfortunately had to sell, so I moved onto Arrowhead Rockdrill in Chesterfield where I worked as production engineer and then production manager. After 4 years I moved to Scotland, and was offered a job working for a Sheffield based tooling distributor (now Kyocera). In 2008, as the recession hit, I went to work for an American Ceramic & Carbide tooling manufacturer Greenleaf Corp. I was responsible for growing sales of ceramic indexable tooling in Northern Europe, machining difficult to machine materials such as hardened steels, and Heat resistant alloys. I then moved to Cutwel in 2018 to look after national key accounts and  the external sales team.

I started my apprenticeship at Yorkshire Machine Tool in Elland. I did a year here in the machine shop on all manual machines.

Unfortunately the company made me redundant and closed at the start of my second year.

After a short time off I resumed my apprenticeship at multi-tech engineering in Ferrybridge. I worked for MTE for 13 years on all manual machines and CNC lathes.

After spending so long in the machine shop I fancied a change and jumped at the opportunity to work at Cutwel as an internal tech. After a year internal I got the opportunity to progress to

an external tech role.

I began my engineering career at North East Engineering LTD as a CNC Turner working in subcontract work, meaning day to day the jobs and materials varied. After serving my time I was employed by Stephenson’s Precision engineering, during this time the company and its employees were bought out 2 times meaning I was working for Teescraft LTD where I gained more experience with having apprentices and employees under me as I was promoted to shift leader. I served this role for just over 2 years before moving to Cutwel to pursue a career where I can share my knowledge throughout the engineering sectors. Whilst working on the shop floor I set and programmed multiple machines with live tooling capabilities including: Doosan, Mazak, Hurco and Romi. I was predominantly a Turner but I have set and ran Doosan milling machines.

Started my apprenticeship at MGM Precision engineering after leaving school in 2001. Initially gaining experience in all aspects of engineering, from welding and fabrication, to electrical and manual machining. I then served the rest of my time as a CNC Turner, programming setting and operating. 2006 I moved to National Oilwell Varco (known then as Anson). Huge oil and gas firm. I had a fantastic 10 years there, done some great work and made some friends for life. 2017, now with my family growing, I started work at Rolls Royce as a Quality Inspector. Another great place to work. Now off the tools, learning new skills and testing myself in this quality role. 2020, now in a New Chapter of my life as a Cutwel External Sales Engineer. Going great so far. Can't wait to get out there and help grow this Brilliant company!
