Don't just take our word for it

I started working at Ideal Boilers in September 2009 as a Customer Services Representative. After going on site with engineers to see repairs first hand, I decided I wanted to develop and move to a more hands role on in the field working on the products. I soon began my training in order to qualify as a gas safe registered engineer. I now attend sites to repair and service boiler and system components. I enjoy this role due to the variety of jobs I undertake and the job satisfaction I gain from repairing boilers.

Zoe Field, Service Engineer

I started my career as an Apprentice Product Engineer when I left school. The first year was at an off-site technical training school. This lead to on-site training to become a Product Engineer designing and developing central heating boilers, whilst studying part time to achieve a BTEC, HNC and a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I recently complete a second part time degree in Business Management and am now a Senior Design Engineer.
