George joined Waldeck in 2018, where at the age of 20 we welcomed him as an Assistant Electrical Engineer.

George then enrolled onto our degree apprenticeship scheme in 2019, studying BSc Building Services Engineering at Leeds Beckett University, which he completed in 2021 with a First Class Honours degree before enrolling onto his MSc Building Services Engineering course, which he has now also completed!

Adam Machan, Director of Waldeck’s Mechanical & Electrical Building Services team shared:

“As highlighted above, George joined Waldeck in 2018 when he was part way through an existing HNC course. We sponsored him through the rest of his course and then onto his additional training to date, accompanied by on-the-job learning under his mentor Steve Rowe. I’m sure everyone will join me in congratulating George on his achievements, but also I would like to thank and congratulate Steve for all the work he has done to help George on his career journey so far!

“George’s ability and ambition has driven his desire to become a Chartered Engineer and he realised that to do this he needed to have a level 7 Masters qualification under his belt. We are all delighted for George that he is now one step closer to becoming Chartered.

“Not only academically gifted, George has achieved the position of Senior Engineer on his merits, proving that seniority often has little to do with age and everything to do with ability.”

George shared:

“I am beyond happy to announce that I have received a Distinction in my MSc Building Services Engineering degree.

“I would like to extend a special thanks to Michael White for the support over the years as well as Waldeck and the Morson Group for the training and support since joining the business five years ago.

“My graduation concludes nine years of part time learning and looking back to 2014, when I started an Electrical Installation Apprenticeship and I was crawling around lofts and under floors, it’s certainly been a journey. Keep learning and you never know where it can take you!”
