Ryan Harris, Demon

I didn’t know what I wanted to do after my GCSEs but I knew I wanted to start earning some money. When I spoke to Careers South West, they put me in touch with Skills Group who told me about the different apprenticeships I could do. I’d enjoyed engineering at school so went for a Level 2 Fabrication and Welding apprenticeship with Demon.

I completed my apprenticeship in a year and was offered a job as Demon’s Service Engineer. I’m now running the service department, looking after the repair and maintenance of our pressure washers, and I’m training up two other engineers.

I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship – you get paid to learn!
