In Apprenticeship Week, we are talking with another Q3 apprentice, Joseph Trodd. Joe is an apprentice Building Services Engineer based at the London HQ of one of our prestigious clients, Salesforce Inc, the market-leading CRM software company. He is currently on the 2nd year of his level 3 service and maintenance engineer apprenticeship.
What have you learnt so far from this apprenticeship?
I have learnt a great deal since beginning this apprenticeship in September 2022. So far, I have gained an understanding about the different services and systems found within buildings, such as ventilation, heating, water supply and electrical supply. I have also learnt about how building management systems and fire detection systems work.
What have you enjoyed about this apprenticeship?
I have really enjoyed the practical work in the apprenticeship and the problem-solving aspect of the job, which is hugely important. This has enabled me to work independently and given me confidence to make decisions on the job. Each day I learn something new! This apprenticeship has already given me a good overview of the different services needed within a building and as time goes on, I aim to specialise in a specific building service area.
What do you hope the apprenticeship will do for you?
I think the apprenticeship will open a lot of doors for me in the hard FM industry. I enjoy the technical side of the role, so I would like to work as an engineer before moving into a more specialist role or, with the support of my line manager and Q3, perhaps further my career into management. At this stage I am happy to be learning as much as possible.
