Libby Daymond, installation engineer apprentice at Premier Communication Electronics (PCE) discusses what it's like to be the company's first first female engineering apprentice
How do you spend most of your time at work?
Working with my fellow engineers on blue light, tracker and secure communications for the emergency services. This involves prepping looms, syncing lights, removing the interior of cars, soldering and crimping cable, and valeting the vehicles once they are finished.
What’s the one gadget that you can’t live without?
My mobile phone. It keeps me connected with work, family and friends.
Why did you choose to go into the digital comms/electronics sector?
I enjoyed maths and physics at secondary school so I chose a career that included both of those subjects. Electrical engineering seemed a perfect choice.
What’s your favourite aspect of the work?
Getting the satisfaction out of completing an installation from start to finish without a hitch. Learning about the mechanical and electrical side of vehicles, as well as gaining knowledge on emergency service vehicles, and their blue lights and sirens.
How do you feel about being PCE’s first female engineering apprentice?
