Yasmine Ahmet - Apprentice Gas Engineer

"I didn’t really know what to expect when I applied for the apprenticeship, but it was great to get stuck into practical work and projects straight away, on site & working with engineers.

I have various responsibilities, but my main role is to assist the engineers on jobs, where I have to use my own initiative to make decisions that will lead to the best outcome. I am currently helping the servicing and breakdown engineers on jobs on properties that United Living maintain. This consists of me diagnosing problems with a boiler and carrying out safety checks accurately under the supervision of an engineer. 

My apprenticeship with United Living has benefited me in many different ways, and has been very enjoyable. I have developed good interpersonal skills & time keeping and have received a lot of support from everybody and I am very grateful".
