When I joined WPD there was only one licence area called SWEB. SWEB had a good reputation as an engineering company and I applied because it had a comprehensive training scheme and good career prospects. The same is still true for WPD.
I am responsible for the West Midlands’ Licence and my week has so much variety which is why it is interesting. But generally my activities involve the network, customers, safety, policy and staff.
