Meet Emily King

“Originally I was a plumber. I moved into installing ASHP four years ago, upskilling to install and service heat pumps. I’ve always been a practical person and I love problem-solving – it really is rewarding. It’s also nice speaking to customers and sorting out their issues. I’d love to have more female colleagues. Heat pumps are the future and the need for skilled engineers is only going to increase. Engineering is a fantastic career, particularly if you like problem-solving. Everyone has been very supportive, and they have encouraged me to develop my skills. It is also fantastic to be part of the drive to achieving net zero."

Emily is our Service Engineer at Daikin UK.

Meet Enrique Peralta

“Being part of the Internal Audit team at Daikin has been a great experience. Each audit brings new challenges which are easier to face when you know you can count on your team for support. My assignments have given me the opportunity to meet people from all over the company and learn from them. I am still amazed by how international our office is - colleagues from all over the world, from very different backgrounds, working together on a common goal: that is remarkably impressive. For those looking to further develop their professional career in a company that is leader in its field, while working with a team proud of its professional commitment - look no further: Daikin is the place to be.”

Meet Valerie Coghe

“As a graduate, the business world might seem a bit overwhelming since there are so many options. Me personally, I did not have any experience in the workplace and I didn’t know what role would fit me best. Hence why I chose for the traineeship which Daikin offers. As a trainee, I’m able to get a taste of different departments and connect with many people along the way. Everyday I’m gaining more insight in the company itself and I feel like I’m growing both professionally and personally. I would definitely recommend doing a traineeship if you’re young and eager to explore!”

Valerie is working as an International Trainee in Daikin Europe HQ.
