Chef Sophie Spreads Her Wings And Soars Off

By Hannah Titcomb R E Thompson & Co. (Vacuum) Ltd

Friday, 13 February 2015


I began working for R E Thompson in September 2014, primarily under the role of marketing. Despite not having an engineering background, I've learnt huge amounts about the industry, ranging from inspection, deburring, automated machining, CNC milling & turning, Gundrilling and much more.

It's farewell and good luck this week as we say goodbye to our resident chef and commercially-qualified pilot Sophie. She joined us 2 years, 9 months ago, and has been a huge asset to the company ever since, especially when sometimes she's feeding over 40 hungry mouths every day!

Thanks to her we've been treated to freshly made, home cooked meals on a daily basis, always served on time with a smile, and has once again passed the government's Health and Hygeine inspection with an outstanding 5 stars

During her time here Sophie has been searching for a job in the aviation industry, and has recently been offered a position with Virtual Aerospace, a flight simulator company, to offer experience flights on a B737-800 simulator. This is a fantastic opportunity, and she hopes it will lead to a position as a first officer with an airline

We'd like to thank Sophie for all her hard work and such a fantastic contribution to R E Thompson, and wish her all the luck in the world with her new job. Keep your ears open next time you're on a flight; it may be her voice you hear over the tannoy!
