Meet Kareemot - our Level 2 Rail Engineering Operative Apprentice!
What led you to apply for an apprenticeship?
I applied for the McGinley apprenticeship because I took an Engineering course in college and loved the practical element. So, I wanted to gain more relevant real-world experience.
What are your highlights so far?
What do you hope to do after your apprenticeship/what are your future career goals?
Once I complete my apprenticeship, wish to become an S&T Technician.
What advice do you have for other women thinking of working in this industry?
Never relent and have it in mind that “what a man can do, a woman can do better”. Being the only woman in my on-track team is challenging, but they are really supportive and push me harder to achieve my goals.
