I am a Machinist at Mercedes AMG HPP I operate a wide variety of machines ranging from manual machines to C.N.C machines to accomplish a large range of tasks. on a daily basis I spend a lot of time solving problems with my fellow colleagues and line managers, this can range for other operators to Q.E's and M.E's and designers meaning you get a lot of experience in different fields of work other than machining. I am responsible for the machines I use as well as making sure that everybody who is working with and around me is kept safe, I am also responsible for any of the parts I make and to make sure that they are in spec.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
