What does a typical day in your job involve?
I am part of a team that offers engineering support for project work so every day in my job is different, which is great. Every new project that I work on differs from the last and every day each project progresses a bit further, bringing about new actions and challenges.
Typically I would be involved in the design, procurement, install/construction and commissioning of equipment/facilities, so essentially the full life cycle of a project. Working as part of a design team for a project, I help to define the initial design as well as come up with solutions when the design requires a change during the install/construction phase. Day to day, I also manage contractors on-site who are working on my projects, ensuring good Health and Safety practices as well as ensuring the design is being followed.
I am also involved in communicating progress and problems as they arise to the relevant stakeholders. At the end of the install, my job is to test the equipment/facilities, ensuring they are fit for purpose and meet the user’s requirements.
