George Sheldon: Apprentice Technician

Since joining MVIS, George has proved himself to be a keen learner who always makes time to help out other members of the team, no matter how stretched for time he is.

How long have you been with MVIS?:
I started working at MVIS in April 2015 as an apprentice studying electrical engineering after I finished doing electrical installation.

Job role:
I mostly work in the workshop building, fixing, and preparing our VMS.

This can vary though as there is a variety of products we deal with in the workshop. When I’m not doing this I am usually on-site sorting out our products we have on the highways.

How did you get into the industry:
I got into this industry through college as I was looking for an apprenticeship in electrical engineering and learning unlimited at Chesterfield College knew about this job which was perfect for me.

Most fulfilling part of your role:
The most fulfilling part about my job is the satisfaction I feel with getting to do a job which contributes to something important.

I also enjoy seeing our products on the highways as you know you helped build something which helps to keep the roads safe.

More about me:
Outside of work I like socialising with friends. I also follow a lot of boxing and occasionally go to the events.
