Ryan Bartlett - Development Engineer
Research & Development
Ryan started his career with Airedale as a modern apprentice in April 2012, aged 17. He has worked in nearly all areas of manufacturing as part of Airedale’s popular Apprenticeship scheme.
Ryan explains, "Airedale’s Apprenticeship scheme has given me vast amounts of experience and understanding of how the company works and what certain job roles entail. I have since gained a permanent position within the Research & Development department.
Having finished the first year at college, Airedale helped me to continue my studies via day-release in order to complete a B-TEC Level 3 in Mechanical Engineering.
Since then I have completed my NVQ Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Manufacturing Engineering through Leeds City College and my HNC in Mechanical Engineering at Wakefield College. Throughout these qualifications Airedale has provided me with all the encouragement, support and funding I could have asked for.”
