Back in October 2019 we welcomed our new apprentice HVAC engineer, Daniel Hibbard. Now, nearly 5 months on, we thought we’d catch up with Daniel to see how he’s been settling in to his new role at Robinsons Facilities Services.
Hi Daniel, how have your first few months been at Robinsons Facilities Services?
My first few months here have been great. I’ve been visiting a lot of different sites, meeting many new people and learning more week by week. I feel I am really progressing with my apprenticeship and making the most of the opportunity!
That’s great! What is the most interesting thing you have learnt so far?
I would say that the most interesting thing I have learned so far is the difference between various heating systems. I am also learning about oil, LPG, steam, biomass and gas boilers which is really interesting.
What do you like about working at Robinsons Facilities Services?
The people here are really knowledgeable and friendly. They are easy to work with and I learn something new every day.
Has anything surprised you about the job?
The thing that has surprised me the most is how much I prefer commercial to domestic works. I previously worked at a domestic plumbing and heating company and although I enjoyed the work, I find commercial works much more interesting with so much more to learn.
What are you hoping to learn in the next 3 months?
To be able to name every part of a combi boiler and learn more about how every one of those parts work. I am feeling confident!
Can you tell us what your working week is like?
My working week consists of doing something new every day and it usually involves boiler servicing.
We are delighted that Daniel is settling in to this new role at Robinsons Facilities Services.
