“My industry qualification means I’ll never be short of work”

Imran joined Mitie as an electrical apprentice based at University College London Hospitals. He works alongside qualified engineers within a busy hospital in London where he undertakes a range of electrical maintenance tasks to ensure electrical systems are working safely and as they should be.

“I would definitely recommend an apprenticeship at Mitie. Not everyday is the same, we get to work on a lot of different things… We work as a team and the work we do is really valuable.”
