Technical Skills:

  • Fault finding and repair: Skilled at working out why a particular piece of equipment is not functioning correctly and recommending and implementing a cost-effective solution

  • Thrived in a dynamic varied environment such as commissioning, fault finding, maintenance and planned work meaning no two days were the same.
