Daniel Jackson, 20, an Apprentice Electrical Engineer at Athena PTS, lives on Walney

Dan has become an important part of the design team at Athena PTS after taking on an apprenticeship at the Barrow-based business.


Dan enjoys his spare time in Cumbria and is planning to make the most of living so close to The Lakes this summer.

“I’ve just got a car so I’m planning to go up The Lakes at the weekends and explore,” he said. “It’s on our doorstep but I don’t really know what’s there. I’d like to start doing more things outdoors so that’s the plan.

“You can be just as sociable in Cumbria as you can if you go away to uni.

“I’ve thought about moving away but I can’t see myself living in a big city. When I think about moving permanently, I just want to stay in Cumbria.

“I’ve got a job I really enjoy and I’m happy here.”
