Employee Spotlight - Daniel

Daniel joined us at the very start of October as our first ever apprentice! He has fitted in straight away and will help out with the onsite registration equipment preparation and logistics, supporting any technical queries and will spend 20% of his time at college gaining his Infrastructure Technician Level 3 qualification. 

How long have you worked for JET?
I have worked for JET about 2 months now, I have just started my apprenticeship here, although I have been here for only a short time I know I’m going to like it here and work hard.

What have been your impressions of the events industry?
Very welcoming, I feel like I’m much more involved with the company and the team that works here than any other job I’ve had. I am also surprised on what there are events for, it's crazy there is one for everything.

If you were going to run an event, what would it be?
Probably something in Gamescom, as it's in Germany and I would get the chance to go there again after over a decade, it's also very busy at Gamescom so it would give me good experience in going to and running busy events and working in a very manic atmosphere and it’s all about games as well.

We hear you have your driving test coming up soon, what car are you going to get?
Yes that's right and i'm definitely going to pass! I already have a Ford KA 10 plate which I like a lot.

And what is your dream car?
My dream car is probably a Ferrari, like the one I drove when me and my family went on the 6th Gear Experience last year. I really enjoyed my time there.

First song bought?
'The Pretender' by Foo Fighters.

The song you’d sing at karaoke?
'Take Me Home, Country Roads' by John Denver.

Worst job you’ve had (hopefully not this one ;) )?
My last job working at a clothes shop… ugh… retail.

Favourite Film?
The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan (2008). Absolutely amazing film, still holds up over a decade later.

Who would play you in a movie?
I would play probably someone in the superhero film industry. I'd have Tom Holland play me.

Favourite Food?
Dominos, everyone loves a quality Dominos.

Favourite Drink?
I’d say probably Fanta.        

Favourite Holiday/Place to go on holiday?
Probably Portland Bill, a little island just off the coast of Dorset to the south, we have a holiday hut there it's very nice, me and my family go there often.

If you could travel anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go?
America, they’ve got pretty much everything.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I like gaming in my spare time.

What one thing could you never give up?
Definitely my family.

Your biggest achievement?
Getting this apprenticeship, it’s the best job I’ve ever had.

Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I have met Britain’s first astronaut as a kid (see pic for proof). Tim Peake was a great guy to meet and we got to have space ice cream with him!
