Eliot started his apprenticeship with PEME in September 2011 working at a major food manufacturer and has since travelled to various PEME manufacturing client site locations. Eliot has also spent a few months working within the PEME Design Office to gain experience on Computer-aided Design (CAD). Prior to joining PEME, Eliot had completed a City and Guilds Performing Engineering Operations (PEO) in Engineering Practices (NVQ2) and is now studying an Electrotechnical Apprenticeship through Wisbech College.
