Case Study: Daniel Gardner

Daniel Gardner – “Would you like milk?”

Every day Daniel estimated he would be saying this over 100 times to customers. He was fed up and needed a change. Now Daniel wakes up for work excited and relishes the chance to get stuck in. He loves being able to work outside on a site and feels valued by Balfour Beatty who are putting so much into his training.

Daniel waited four months until he was able to take up post and venture down to the TUCA building to begin his training. Although there was a bit of uncertainty he was happy to wait knowing the potential this role had.

Before flourishing as a materials technician Daniel had managed to forge a career at Morrisons working as a team leader in their café.  Daniel was incredibly proud of his work at Morrisons and was very meticulous when undertaking any task there. This is something he has brought to his new role and combined it with his inquisitive mind, enabling him to deal with subcontractors on site with ease.

It would be easy to assume that Daniel had an excellent educational start in life from the way he has excelled at work, however, this is not the case. Having gone to one of the toughest schools in Malvern he can’t quite believe his luck at finding this apprenticeship with Balfour Beatty.
