Welcome to the team – Rufaro Chevene (Technical Assistant)

Rufaro has now joined the TH Plastics team as Technical Assistant. After recently graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University with a 2:1, Rufaro is enthusiastic to start his career. Having a mechanical engineering background, he was keen to start getting involved and learning all about the Plastics Industry. He has settled into the team brilliantly with his cool, calm and collective approach to any task which is given to him. He possesses all the necessary skills, not just with his high quality work but through his people skills which will be applicable for the role.

What are your plans for TH Plastics ‘’ I would first like to thank Ash and Jimmy for believing in me and giving me this amazing opportunity to be part of such a welcoming and friendly team who have a wealth of experience. With my mechanical engineering background, I am keen to put down my pen as a student and pick up the valuable practical skills I need to become a vital member of the team. I am very excited to learn all about the engineering side of TH Plastics and look forward to making contributions to the company in any way I can.’’

Tell me about yourself and why you knew that this role was for you ‘’ I love using Solidworks for CAD drawings and during my time in university I became known as the “CAD Guy”. Being able to use a software that I use in my own spare time brings an element of fun to my work as I would happily draw for free. My highlight so far has been going on site visits with Jimmy and Siya which enabled me to really see how the engineering world ticks. As I have only been with the company for less than a month, I am sure there will be plenty more highlights that will top the current one. I look forward to growing with the company and becoming the best Technician I can be.’’

What is Rufaro like outside of work ‘’Outside of the office I enjoy going to the gym for calisthenics training which I find is great way to transition from the work environment to the home environment. You will also find me on Solidworks drawing anything and everything I can think of or just having some down time with my girlfriend.’’
