We recently spoke with Sumaya over on our Blog, an Apprentice Production Technician who does her apprenticeship with SEMTA at Surface Measurement Systems. Find out what she had to say about her apprenticeship here.

Sumaya started searching around March of 2018 and started at SMS six months later, through the use GetMyFirstJob whilst searching for open apprenticeship engineering vacancies. Sumaya stated 'It was pretty simple to use, and all laid out clearly'.
