“42T has given me the opportunity to work on a wide variety of new products, including drug delivery devices, high pressure gas valves, chocolate production equipment, firefighter breathing systems, industrial internet of things devices, industrial printers, cash machines, and technology for space vehicles.
“I am especially proud of the team and the culture that we have here at 42T. We have a friendly, open and supportive team of very clever people who seem to genuinely like working together. It is a great place to be stretched and challenged and I am comfortable knowing that I am rarely the smartest person in the room (unless I am alone – and sometimes not even then!).
“In between work and a wonderful family that includes three fast-growing high-energy children, I can be found out cycling or in the garage/man cave making things, repairing things or hiding from the children.”
