Life at DriveWorks – A Graduate’s Story

Robert Hayward, member of the DriveWorks Tech Team and LJMU graduate, has had great success already.

If you’ve ever had a support call with one of the DriveWorks tech team, it may have been with Rob Hayward.

Rob was on placement at DriveWorks for 15 months before returning to Liverpool John Moores University for his final year. He graduated with a first class degree in Product Innovation and Development. He then returned as a full time member of the DriveWorks team.

As a recent graduate, Rob featured on LJMU’s news pages after attending the New Designers Exhibition in London.

DriveWorks Graduates

Pictured above is Rob with the other Product Design Engineering graduates that attended the week long New Designers Show at the Business Design Centre.

Rob said “New Designers 2014 was really great experience and a perfect way to conclude my time at university. Exhibiting alongside the best design graduates in the country was a privilege.”

Proving his love of designing and product innovation, Rob has started ‘DriveWorks Design’. A group of around 10 DriveWorks employees meet every Thursday and work on designing and manufacturing exciting projects. They are currently working on a new DriveWorks booth that we’re hoping to show off at SolidWorks World!

Last week, Rob spent an afternoon at his old high school, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and Sixth Form. He was there teaching a group of year 12 and 13 students. He focused on introducing DriveWorksXpress to them. He also showed the students some SolidWorks tips and tricks to help develop their solid modelling skills.

Rob really enjoyed the afternoon, he is hoping to return for some similar sessions soon. He said “I think all of the students benefited from the visit and it certainly broadened their understanding of how important developing CAD skills can be!”

The NewHaus project on is an example of Rob’s work here at DriveWorks.

Rob is one of many enthusiastic, committed and overall impressive members of the DriveWorks team – made up of long-serving employees, recent graduates and placement students.
