From day one of joining Ultra Electronics I felt an important part of the business

…On graduating with a first-class honours degree in Electromechanical Engineering from University, I wanted to develop my career with a technology-led engineering business that I could see had a reputation in the market-place for developing its people.

From day one of joining Ultra Electronics I felt an important part of the business, with its people values embedded into its business processes. My personal development has been managed through an agreed plan, supported by excellent Group Management Training modules, personal mentoring and hands-on, real life experiences when I need it.

Having worked at Ultra for just over two years, I am now looking forward to progressing to the engineering function early next year where I will be making more use of my technical qualification together with the management skills I have gained to develop future products for the business…
