Matt Jones, REAZN UK Quality Engineer Apprentice

How did you first get into Engineering?

Prior to starting my Apprenticeship, I completed a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering at South Staffs College. During that time, I had the opportunity to get involved in extracurricular activity too, such as robotics projects and attending the Young Engineers Program at Imperial College London. Once I finished College, I knew that I wanted to pursue an Apprenticeship and start my career in Engineering. Following a competitive selection process, I was successful in gaining the Apprentice Quality Engineer position at REAZN UK.

What do you like most about your job role?

Part of the global REAZN group of companies, REAZN UK is a strong supplier of zinc die-casting and galvanizing alloys to the European markets, with a leading position in the UK. It is a very professional, progressive company and I am proud to be part of that type of organisation.

My role as a Quality Engineer includes everything related to quality control measures and quality assurance, such as conducting laboratory analysis. Through my work, I get to have a certain influence over production processes too, which I find very interesting. As an Apprentice, whilst learning on the job, I can contribute an additional perspective within my department, helping to find solutions where required and I value that my opinions are taken on board.

Would you recommend a career in Engineering to other young people and why?

I would most definitely recommend a career in Engineering. The roles available are varied and the work is both interesting and rewarding, with lots of opportunities to develop new skills.
