Kieran worked as a line manager for a crisp manufacturer. He decided to step out of his comfort zone, switch to the construction plant industry, and follow a career path that allowed him to work outside. He took part in a Plant Operator apprenticeship with Flannery.
"My previous job was a line manager for the second biggest crisp manufacturer in UK and Ireland. I chose to leave my role as I wanted to progress in life, push the boundaries and step out of my comfort zone as I believe I got to the end of the progression in the factory and wanted to work outside."
When he first joined Flannery, he was a little worried about not knowing much about the construction industry and being out of his comfort zone.
"I was very sceptical due to not knowing much about the construction industry and being out of my comfort zone. Once I found my feet and started working with people at Flannery, they all made me feel like I'd been working there for years."
Long term, Kieran wants to become a trainer with Flannery or a college to help others progress into plant careers.
"I want to continue to enhance my skills on machinery and become a specialist in my field. In the future, I'd like to take up some form of trainer role in the company or for a college as I would like to pass my knowledge and experience on to future generations."
