Staff Spotlight: Benjamin Clark – Apprentice Electrician

At Avita Group, it’s really important we showcase our talented team, especially our apprentices, who we support through the Government’s Apprentice Scheme.

Our sparkies really are something!

We asked Benjamin Clark, our trainee electrician, a few questions on how he’s finding the role, what he’s most proud of and what’s in the future!

Hi Ben! Tell us about specific duties in your current role?

I help to aid my fellow electricians with work required; passing tools, preparing sites, tidying sites, completing electrical tasks, and anything else that’s asked of me. I also watch my colleagues closely, taking note of projects they are working on and the technicalities. This ensures my growth of knowledge in the field!

My parents and my sister inspire me to work hard.

Do you have any mentors in your professional life?

My two bosses (Richard and David) are my most influential mentors. They teach me on a day-to-day basis the ins and outs of the job and how to be the best possible at it!
