Meet Harriette Ewens - a Wienerberger apprentice
Having worked at Wienerberger since May 2015, Harriette Ewens, 17, is currently undertaking an apprenticeship as a Mechanical Engineer, working at our Broomfleet site four days a week, whilst spending one day studying through HETA – providers of health & safety training and engineering apprenticeships.
Opting to commence her career immediately after leaving school, Harriette has put her enjoyment of Maths, Science and Design to good use. On completion of Wienerberger’s apprenticeship programme she will qualify as a Mechanical Engineer, a career which challenges her to utilise all three disciplines within her day to day job.
HARRIETTE: "It’s great to be a part of the team here at Wienerberger, where I’ve been given a brilliant platform to start my career in Construction. Since leaving school and joining the company over a year ago, I’ve learnt a great deal, both through being on site learning on the job, and through undergoing additional training one day a week through HETA. Each day is different and I really enjoy being part of the team – it’s a huge aid to my development as an apprentice that I have so many experienced Engineers around me from which I can learn and adapt techniques. I’d definitely encourage anyone wanting to get involved within construction to consider the wide range of opportunities available."
