On Monday 6 September 2021, Jake Higgins joined #TeamHeaford  as an Apprentice Mechatronic Fitter.

At just 19 years old he has already completed his level 2 and 3 and a diploma in engineering and is keen to start his career and learn from his colleagues.

Jake is looking forward to applying what he learns on day release at college and to becoming an invaluable member of the team.

With such a sunny disposition and his can do attitude we’re sure he’ll do well in his chosen career.

In his spare time, he enjoys Formula 1 and is a big fan of Max Verstappen, the Belgian – Dutch racing driver who currently drives for Red Bull and who was the youngest driver, aged 17, to compete in Formula One at the  2015 Australian Grand Prix.

During his apprenticeship, we hope to catch up with him on a regular basis to find out more about life as an apprentice at Heaford.
