What is your role at Wiltshires?

Groundcare engineer

When did you start working at Wiltshires?

I started in 2003 as a land based apprentice engineer. I worked in the workshop until 2013 when I moved into parts and sales. I left for a few years and came back into the workshop as a full time engineer in 2020.

What do you enjoy about working at Wiltshires?

I enjoy the variety of work, the team I work with. The great thing about my job is I can be in the workshop or out on the road at customer premises.

What is your favourite part of your job?

The sense of achievement when I go to a job with a broken down machine and leave the customer with it working.

What do you like to do to unwind when not working?

I look after a local grassroots football pitch as well as playing football and golf. I enjoy spending time with my wife and young daughter watching her grow up.

What would you say to anyone looking at a career in the industry?

It is a good opportunity to learn many different skills. Not just about machinery and mechanics but about customers and how they use their machines. It is a great industry to grow your skills.
