Staff Spotlight: Harry Burbidge – Electrical Apprentice

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

Harry started his Electrical Apprenticeship in September 2022 through the Government Scheme!

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

My day varies, but I’m here to assist the Electricians and learn as much as I can about the work we do to support my apprenticeship.

Who inspires you?

My Dad, who is one of the Directors, so I’ve got to say that! 

I’ve managed to first and second fix sockets and lights in a short space of time.

What is the most exciting part of your job? 

I enjoy seeing the end result from a completed job, and seeing the customer happy.

What’s something you’re proud of?

I’ve managed to first and second fix sockets and lights in a short space of time.

How do you spend your weekends? 

I play football Saturday and Sunday and when I’m not on the pitch, I’m gaming or seeing mates.

What do you want your career to look like in the next few years? 

I would like to complete my apprenticeship and become a fully qualified Electrician.

How would your mates describe you? 

The funny, good looking one (I asked my best mate for the answer!)

What’s been the best part about working for Avita Group so far? 

When someone else buys the lunches, the banter and the café breakfasts!
