Amy’s living the F1 dream
Congratulations to Amy for putting herself on pole position for her ideal career of working in F1.
During the summer Amy has completed a successful placement with the Williams F1 Team. Amy’s ambition is to work in F1 when she has been to university. Instead of dreaming about her ideal career, Amy took matters into her own hands and contacted both the Williams and Mercedes F1 teams. A few weeks after making contact Williams F1 responded and Amy organised the placement with them.
During her placement Amy had the opportunity to meet the founder of the team, Sir Frank Williams CBE,
tour the factory and work in the Model Shop department. Reflecting on her fantastic placement with the team Amy said:
‘Overall the experience massively boosted my confidence and gave me a real insight into what working life will be like and it will help my CV to stand out when I apply for university.
I am hoping to stay in contact and see if I can undertake further work experience
in a different department’.
