As an apprentice, I have the privilege and opportunity to work all around Boeing Aerostructures Australia - learning about 737, 777 and 787. Amongst all that I also get to experience a bit of NDT (Non-Destructive Testing), Fabrication, Tooling, etc.

Most days you'll see me doing tasks assigned to manufacture the moving parts of an aircraft such as ailerons, rudders or inboard or outboard flaps.

My job constantly has me on the tools and the best part about working here is that so many of my teammates have years and years of experience - meaning I get to learn how to do jobs in more than one way.

Another thing about this role is that on the shop floor there is never a dull moment. My teammates are constantly making the workplace a fun and safe environment. My teammates make this more than just a job; for me it is a second home.

All in all, it's a physically demanding job but it's very rewarding seeing all the products come together at the end of the shift, and the amount of knowledge I gather every single day is immeasurable. It makes it all worthwhile knowing I'll be an aircraft maintenance engineer one day and ensuring the products I work on are safe.
