What did your last contract involve?

The last contract I worked on was on an installation project for a Food manufacturer. I was responsible for new machinery installation, machine moving, lighting upgrades and integrating new power supplies. I was involved from the installation phase through to commissioning and testing etc. Then the project would be handed over to the client so they could start production. I was responsible for electrical, mechanical and PLC elements of the project.

What are your key skills that you bring to an organisation as a contractor?

I am able to adapt to change quickly and can hit the ground running within any organisation. I find that I am excellent in working in any environment and adding value quickly to organisations that need support with their maintenance or installation projects. I have a great deal of experience within a variety of sectors including FMCG, Dairy and Automation.

Why did you decide to start contracting?

It gives me an amazing amount of freedom. I can contract when I want for various clients and move within them easily. It gives me flexibility and the ability to earn good money for the services that I provide. The variety of projects provide a real test for me and allows me to have control of my progression and career path.
