Brendan McConnell approached UMR Engines looking for an apprenticeship as an automotive mechanic. Although he had no previous industry experience, after taking the Harrison Career Assessment UMR Engines were willing to give him a chance.

“The boss took me around the workshop and then asked me to do the assessment.  It took me about half an hour.
The blokes I work with help me along the way and it gives me great satisfaction that I’m able to help the customers”.
