I've been with the company for 32 years and enjoy working with high power systems.
My role is very varied, from routine maintenance on high voltage networks to installation and commissioning of new plant on the various networks that WPD operate.
Every day is different, bringing new challenges and situations that need to be addressed and completed.
WPD have a team culture with people willing and able to help.
Being a team player and being able to think outside the box with some challenging situations.
Within WPD there are always opportunities to progress and develop as an employee.
Gaining Engineering specialist status.
An intense two years of training courses and on site assessments to gain full senior authorised person status. This was achieved with good management and efficiency of my time.
If you are operationable the work can be challenging in all weather conditions, so if you like the outdoors and being a team player the WPD could suit you.
