The Shotts firm of­fered the 19-year-old a place at their Calder­head Road base fol­low­ing an im­pres­sive in­ter­view. Caitlin, from Air­drie, said:“I saw some­thing in school about women go­ing into en­gi­neer­ing and I thought it was re­ally in­ter­est­ing and de­cided that’s what I wanted.

“I went on to study me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing at the City of Glas­gow Col­lege for a year. I chose CPA be­cause I re­ally en­joyed my in­ter­view with them. It’s a great com­pany.”

Caitlin’s men­tor, en­gi­neer­ing man­ager Rodger Kerr, is de­lighted with his young pro­tégée.

He said:“We aim to be for­ward-think­ing and Caitlin was def­i­nitely the right can­di­date.”
