VIDEO: Stagecoach East highlights support team

Stagecoach East has published a new video highlighting the value of its vehicle maintenance support teams to the company and the daily life of Engineers at the bus operator.

The video, called ‘Want to engineer the future of sustainable transport?’, promotes the opportunities for development at the operator, with every Engineering Manager at Stagecoach East began ‘on the shop floor’ as an apprentice Technician and has been supported to progress in their career. Even the Engineering Director and Managing Director started their careers as apprentice vehicle Technicians.

In the video, Nathan Patrick, Engineering Manager in Bedford; Ryan Crick, Shift Vehicle Technician; Rebecca Cooke, Stores Person; Ben Wykes, Apprentice Technician and Sylwia Bajon, Presentation Manager all talk about their daily jobs and the work they do.

Ryan Crick is an example of how Technicians can progress at Stagecoach East as, in February this year, he won the Best Newcomer Award at the Stagecoach Excellence Awards.

Vince Goane, Engineering Director of Stagecoach East, who introduces the video, said: “Engineering in an essential part of our business, so I am very pleased to be able to show a little bit about the work we do. We rely on people who are good with their hands, and we have a lot of experience of bringing in people who have experience working on things like agricultural equipment or commercial plant and giving them a fresh challenge and opportunities to develop.

I really want to get the message across that, if you want to be a Vehicle Technician, or if you already are an Technician and are currently working in the car, light van, heavy truck or plant industries, then at Stagecoach East we are the people who can help you develop and enhance your skills further, whilst giving you an opportunity to progress through to supervisory, management and director levels.”
