Generation Logistics case study: Danny Rao, MFS, Second Year Apprentice - Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump

Danny left school at 16 and dived straight into work, with the aim of forging a clear and fulfilling career path. After two years of an aerospace apprenticeship where he gained a basic understanding of engineering practices, he decided it was time for a change.

Now, as a second-year apprentice at MFS, Danny says, “Coming into the logistics and refrigeration industry has been a breath of fresh air for me. I’ve always been able to take in more information and learn at a faster pace when I’m hands on, and spending less time in the classroom.” 

Danny has found that the industry and its fresh, practical way of working encourages colleagues to come out of their shells and communicate clearly, with ease.  

He’s keen to highlight the skills he’s gaining while he learns, skills that he might not have recognised the value of before he made the switch. 

“Being at Marshall and working alongside colleagues in the industry has enabled me to really develop my soft skills and communication, which is tremendously important when looking to develop a career.  

“Without making the move to logistics, I don’t think I’d have had the opportunity to spot that.”
