Our regular spotlight on the mechanics that keep trailers on the road at TIP sees some ‘quickfire’ questions to apprentice workshop mechanic Ellis from our Carrington branch.

Job title: Apprentice Workshop Mechanic
Years at TIP:

Years Year Months Month Days Day

How did you begin working in the trailer industry?

My dad works for TIP, also at the Carrington Workshop, and I have always wanted to follow in his footsteps so I started an apprenticeship with TIP. I am currently two years into my apprenticeship and have almost finished my college NVQ. I will then do a further 2 years in the workshop before completing my apprenticeship. I have loved doing my apprenticeship so far!

What do you like about working for TIP Trailer Services?

I think the opportunities at TIP are great! There is so much training on offer and I have completed a few different pieces of training, even as an apprentice. The people I work with are great too!  

What’s your biggest work achievement?

I would say hearing comments about my work from colleagues and the Workshop Manager. It gives me a real confidence boost to know I’m doing well and on the right track!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I used to play a lot of football when I was younger, but now I enjoy gaming, watching YouTube, listening to music and spending time with my family.
