Mitchell Eaton is proud of his achievements

With good reason: Mitch holds the certificate that marks a key stage in his training at Smith of Derby. He has achieved Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Engineering Manufacture (Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering) along with City and Guilds Level 3 diploma and BTEC level 3 subsidiary diploma in the same subjects. His training will continue with coaching from our experienced team of clockmakers and hands-on experience.

Mitch is passionate about the practical hands-on work that he does. And he is reliable, trustworthy and confident to work on his own – very important on service calls to clock towers near and far. He also has a passion for fishing, cars and family. A customer said: “Mitch is a very pleasant young man and has an eye for attention to detail”. We were delighted to hear that, and we’re very proud of him too.

After his photocall it was back to business as usual. Mitch was heading into Derbyshire to attend to what we call a “stopper”, in this instance a clock that was still going but not keeping correct time
