When did you join TST?
I joined TST June 2014.
What attracted you to TST?
A family member who works at TST was always talking to me about how good the facility is to work in and is different to other factories. I was previously self-employed seeking employment and was attracted to TST due to the positive factors I was told about.
What roles have you had here from starting to current?
Since I started TST I first worked on stop off as an operator then I trained to aqueous clean, further on just over a year I then went on to work in aluminising again as an operator cross training to vibro-polishing. At present I now work alongside stop off as a technician.
What development have you been given?
Through the roles in which I have done I have had training which has been thorough not only job roles but within other courses such as operating machinery, for example cranes forklift and floor cleaners full training by an approved instructor is given. In terms of projects I have had a significant involvement within trial parts, I have also worked projects such has new ways of protecting the aerofoil and canning parts for shank aluminising. At present as a stop off technician we are working on projects such as lead time reduction cost savings and working to prevent aluminising bleed.
What do you like best about TST?
For me TST offers a great opportunity as you can see from my testimonial, if you are keen and willing to further your career TST have the correct approach to drive employees to where they want to be. Also with it being a world class facility TST have high expectations for working safe, they are very persistent when it comes to anybody working in the facility by providing excellent health and safety requirements such as PPE and all other aspects of safety.
How would you recommend TST to someone considering to join us?
I would boast the positives that the company has to offer are the incentives and motivation points especially. I would also tell them about my journey from being someone with no experience to who I am today. Overall TST is a great place to work with endless opportunities. Finally, I would like to thank all the staff which have been with me from the start of my journey to present, I have had continuous support and great direction from the staff and it has made me who I am today within TST. It is a pleasure to be part of a professional team and as a world class facility a safe place of work.
