In a single week I might be involved in design work, technical analysis, creative workshops, client meetings, testing and other interesting work.

There are few jobs in engineering with such diversity.

The reason I came to 42T was so that I could apply my technical experience while also being involved in business development and project management. 42T offers me that on a daily basis.

On the technical side, there’s never a dull moment. I’ve worked on projects relating to food production, consumer packaging, fuel cells, remote data collection in harsh environments and connected devices for monitoring a wide range of things.

42T’s size and can-do culture make it a great place for getting things done quickly, whether it be building the right team for a project or getting a working prototype made. People here are really into the engineering and that enthusiasm shows through all the time.

I joined 42T for the variety of work and haven’t been disappointed! At any given time I could be brainstorming creative solutions to a technical problem, developing complex test rigs for a medical device, and designing prototypes to demonstrate a concept to a client.

But the team is what makes 42T special. It’s small enough that everybody knows each other well. But at the same time there is a huge breadth of experience in one place. It’s the ideal combination because if a project runs into a tricky technical problem, you always know who will be able to solve it, and they’ll be willing to help.

42T gives me the ability to grow my expertise in many fields. It is not just the subject of work that varies – I can manage projects and engage with clients at a strategic level without losing the opportunity to delve more deeply into the technical side of the work.

I have a passion for innovation that is more than at home in 42T’s strong inventive atmosphere and I enjoy facilitating on a wide range of topics from confectionery to space transport.
