Baker swaps cakes for circuit boards with apprenticeship at Circad
Posted on 2nd March 2017
A former bakery assistant who swapped filling cake cases to become an electronics engineering apprentice says it is the job she “always wanted”.
Lauren Matthews, 23, said she was the only girl who applied for the apprenticeship at Circad Design Limited in Ipswich and “shocked” when she got an interview.
Now she is learning how to locate faults in printed circuit boards and has impressed her bosses so much that they are looking for two new apprentices to follow in her footsteps.
“To start with I didn’t know anything about electronics engineering” she said.
“I’d soldered things at school but that was it. My manager has taught me everything I need to know and I go to college. I love it. I always wanted a job that would give me a sense of achievement and I’ve got that 100%.”
The award-winning company is looking for a sales and marketing apprentice as well as another electronics manufacturing apprentice. Anyone interested in the apprenticeships at Circad Design Limited should call 01473 743700.
