Our case-study focus this week is on George Rawlins, a higher apprentice in the Aerospace Division at Atkins. Find out more about his role below.
I was one of the first people to join Atkins’ Aerospace division on the higher apprenticeship scheme. While working towards a foundation degree in mechanical engineering at the City of Bristol College, I am also working with colleagues on high profile projects for clients including Rolls-Royce and Airbus. My focus is on mechanical and design engineering across aerostructures and aero engines.
I was eager to get into the workplace and make my own way in the world, so the higher apprenticeship suits me as it will enable me to do this while I study. Due to the nature of work and the breadth of disciplines, Atkins was one of my top choices.
