Cain R.

Apprentice Welder/Fabricator

1. Tell me what your role involves.

My role at SST is to help the fabrication team in producing exhaust systems to a high standard, whilst also learning valuable welding techniques to help better my abilities. I also help out in various other departments such as insulation, jig build, tube making and the aluminium section.


2. What attracted you to join SST?

I approached Abingdon and Witney College for an apprenticeship, based on my qualifications from school. I was delighted they found me an apprenticeship here. As I was already interested in motorsport and had an engineering qualification it seemed the obvious choice to come here and progress my career in a dynamic, innovative company.

3. What did you do before you came here?

Before my apprenticeship at SST Technology, I was studying my A levels whilst working in a supermarket part time. However I found that A levels weren’t for me so I chose an alternative route and came to SST full time as an apprentice.


4. What do you love about working here?

I really enjoy working with the people here, its a great team spirit and the good working hours. I have been shown many valuable skills by highly skilled colleagues whom I still learn from and these skills shown to me ‘hands-on’ are complimented by the theory that I learn at College.
