Technicians – Breaking the myths

Does a service technician equal repairman? Is he (they are all men, aren’t they?) covered in grease most of the day? In this podcast, we talk about misconceptions surrounding service technicians, their value for customers and the cool places they visit, with our very own service technician, Samuele Chiosi. Our specialist, Sam Sharkey, talks about teamwork, safety and whether technician roles are only for men.
