Mark Thirkettle

Team Leader



With over 20 years’ experience working in the amusement industry, I started as a ride attendant/operator at Drayton Manor Park during my studies. Following my A-levels I began an electrical apprenticeship in the park and progressed into an Electrical Maintenance Engineer. This role required me to perform device inspections and preventative maintenance, fault diagnosis and repairs, in addition to electrical installation work covering commercial, industrial, agricultural and domestic areas.

In 2006 I joined LTC as an Inspection Engineer to further my career in the industry carrying out inspection and certification under the ADIPS scheme. In 2011 I progressed into a Senior Inspection Engineer/Team Leader role. As part of the management team, my responsibilities include involvement in the tendering process, planning and organisation of work, assisting/deputising for the Technical Manager and leading projects. Having gained a wealth of experience in the industry working in various countries on a variety of projects, my passion for the industry grows with safety at the forefront of my philosophy.
