At the Hart of Things

Senior Test Engineer, Dom Hart, plays a pivotal role in C-TEC’s manufacturing facility. Head of our Test Department, Dom’s responsible for ensuring all our equipment is up-to-date and in excellent working order.

When did you start working at C-TEC?

I joined C-TEC in 2017 as an Apprentice Engineer. Since then, I’ve worked in virtually every area of manufacturing facility, completed a HNC and HND in Electronic Engineering and progressed to Senior Test Engineer. I’m also managing the schedules of our new Apprentice Engineers at the moment.

What do you like most about your job?

As an engineer, I like making life easier for people by refining processes and introducing new technology. It’s great that the company has invested so much in the department recently. The new lathe machine has been life-changing for me as I can now design and produce bespoke test equipment in house. The people I work with are also fantastic, we make a good team and I feel very lucky to be able to advance my passion for engineering in such a positive environment.

What’s C-TEC like as an employer?

The best. My manager, Terry Gordon, is very supportive. I feel valued and my recent promotion proves that my abilities and loyalty to the company are being recognised. I’m also looking forward to the next company ski trip if I’m lucky enough to be picked!

What do you do in your spare time?

I like gaming and going out with friends. As a team, we make a point of going out at least once a month usually to the local bars in Wigan. Terry’s taking us to Brewskis in Manchester on our next night out which I’m looking forward to as he reckons it’s amazing.
