Matthew Fletcher, Electrical Assessor

Matthew left school to start a two year scholarship for Shrewsbury Town Football Club, aiming to become a professional footballer. When the football didn’t work out he set his sights on becoming an electrician, starting an apprenticeship with a small company, mainly working in the domestic sector, but with some industrial work. After Matthew completed his apprenticeship he pushed himself to gain extra qualifications, to improve his career prospects, which progressed into employment as an assessor.
