Zahir Uddin joins Develop as an Electrical Trainer

Introducing Zahir (Zed) Uddin, the newest member of Develop’s Estates and Facilities Management team based in York. 

Zed has joined the team as an Electrical Trainer, but he began his professional journey several years ago as an Engineering Apprentice at Harrisons Engineering. Over the years, he has acquired certifications in gas, electricity, plumbing, and, more recently, a number of technical qualifications in renewable energies such as solar PV, air source and ground source heat pumps, and battery storage systems. 

As he moved up the ranks, Zed found the most fulfilment in mentoring his young colleagues, offering them the valuable advice and guidance he once received as a junior staff member. Eventually he felt a calling to impart his knowledge on a broader scale, prompting him to establish his own training business. 

Devoted to ensuring high-quality training for the industry, Zed ran his courses from a training centre in Huddersfield, whilst also working with Develop as an associate self-employed trainer. It was this exposure to Develop’s values, training standards, and opportunities motivated him to pursue a full-time position with the company when one became available.  

Outside work, Zed holds qualifications as a bodyguard and bouncer. His experiences range from managing club doors to safeguarding prominent figures in the music industry, and even Queen Elizabeth II. He also enjoys spending time with his family, particularly family holidays.
