Ollie Simpkin is DATS’ Apprentice CAD Technician whose favourite things include gaming and holidays in Cyprus. Here, we learn a little more about Ollie and why he chose to work at DATS.
How long have you been in CAD and what does your role involve?
I joined the CAD team almost two years ago now and do any CAD related work that comes in. I also go out on site to carry out scanning services and surveys.
What do you like best about your job?
It’s the variety of work that comes in every week – it can be anything from civil or building services, to 3D modelling. I also enjoy getting out and about on site – again, every site is different and I get to experience some really interesting projects.
Why did you choose DATS?
DATS is part of an exciting industry that is constantly evolving – there’s always something new to learn about. But within the company itself, there’s a great family feel and you’re well looked after.
And tell us an interesting fact about yourself
Well, I can easily eat twice my body weight in food. I also enjoy gaming and exploring new places.
