I am a skilled tradesman with twenty years’ experience. I have both managerial and supervisory experience, and the ability to take on a variety of technical roles in numerous disciplines. I work to very high standards and tight deadlines, which are paramount in the oil related industries in which I have been mainly employed.
I have the ability to adapt quickly to new skills or environments and have applied this to on/offshore work globally. In addition, I have gained valuable experience and respect of other cultures, customs and traditions, along with practical application and understanding of different engineering procedures and operations.
I have good mechanical knowledge gained through employment in the automotive industry and Oil and Gas environment. Electrical ability is mainly academic but I have some practical experience with electronics, electrics and semi-conductors. I have other skills including hydraulics and pneumatic s with both practical and system design experience from a technical institute coupled with the ability to read various types of engineering drawing and draft with the use of AutoCAD.
I have a proven ability to communicate effectively with customers, colleagues and management in a professional manner.
I am now looking to pursue new opportunities by utilizing and developing these skills in an engineering or technical role, with the possibility of career development within an established company.
