Engine Shed welcomes apprentice Nimrha Mahmood

In January we welcomed our new Engine Shed Apprentice Nimrha Mahmood to the team. We sat down with her to chat first impressions, past experiences, and her favourite parts of the role so far.

Hi Nimrha, what drew you to Engine Shed?

I found Engine Shed through a contact at Weston College, who recommended the apprentice role. My background is in law, and I thought the apprentice job would be great business experience for me.


What were you doing before you joined Engine Shed?

After my GCSE’s, I studied for a CILEx Level 3 Law qualification. I worked as an apprentice at a Bristol law firm last year, before applying for the role at Engine Shed.


What are your first impressions?

Engine Shed is such a friendly place, and there is always so many people here networking – it’s a place you would want to be, even if you aren’t working. And I love the interior. It feels more like a social space than a business environment, which makes you look forward to coming here.


What is your favourite thing about Engine Shed?

I’m still learning a lot as I’m training to take over from Jasmin when she leaves in March, but so far my favourite thing has to be the people. The company and people you work for are what make the day enjoyable.


Tell us a fun fact about yourself

I skydived for the Islamic Relief Charity to raise money for Syria and Palestine. I didn’t even open my eyes on the way down, I just screamed!
