Stand-In Supervisor

“One of our core values is “thinking outside of the box”. This mentality helps us be agile and responsive to solving problems efficiently and safely. I love the variety that comes with my role and being able to apply this type of thinking.”

Tom served a five-year apprenticeship here at Nissan, learning hands-on practical skills such as turning, milling, welding and grinding, while studying for an HNC in Engineering. Tom has been able to move to Team Leader and then Stand-In Supervisor with further development of his skills in CADCAM and project management. The continental shift pattern, variety of work and exposure to a wide range of processes and skills (repair work, machining, project management, design and development, investigation work) give Tom the job satisfaction and enjoyment he seeks at work.
