Monty Taylor

Electric Vehicle Technician

Monty's job title is Electric Vehicle Apprentice Technician at Cleevely Motors

What I do

I am doing a three-year apprenticeship at Cleevely Motors, working on and learning about internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEs) and electric vehicles (EVs). In an ICE car, you have thousands of moving parts, but an EV has fewer parts and is often more reliable.

How I became a technician

A typical day in my
working life

A surprising fact about my job

My job requires a lot of problem-solving – for example, if I’m working on a vehicle and the head of a bolt snaps, I need to find a solution. We also get a lot of EVs with faults that a computer can’t diagnose, so we need to solve them ourselves.

A little more about
my everyday role

What I love most about my job

There is such a variety in my daily tasks. I get to work on vehicles that have only done a couple of thousand miles or put a battery in an older EV to keep it on the road. We are all still learning, but it’s exciting that we are at the cutting edge of electric vehicles.

The best bits about working in a team

Working in a team with people of different ages is great! We have banter, get a job done more quickly, and I’m learning all the time.

The next steps in my career journey

After a few years, when I'm fully qualified, I would like to just work with EVs. I love this job and can see myself doing this until I’m in my 50s or 60s.
