William Muir

William did a Modern Apprenticeship with Kerr Farm Engineering in Ayrshire and now works as a land-based engineer.

“Growing up on a farm and being fascinated by the ways in which mechanics managed to fix things gave me a driving passion to get into agricultural engineering.

One of the most rewarding things about my work now is being able to arrive at a job in my own van, suitably prepared and equipped to carry out a successful repair and then producing a happy customer.

A highlight was completing my first clutch job on a tractor, as I had to really push my technical skills to the limit.

There are lots of paths open to you in this industry, so I’d encourage people to try as many things as possible. The possibilities are endless and extremely rewarding professionally and personally.”
