Electrical &Property Services Ltd.
Electrical Qualified Supervisor
September 2008 — Present
At EPS I started out as an Electrician, working within a team environment. The majority of our work is domestic from re wires to housing estates. We also do a fair amount of commerical works from retail shops, nursing homes, Fire stations etc.
Our work in the commercial sector has gained me some valuable experience in Fire alarm systems, gas shut off valves and door entry systems, the majority of this work has been conducted at Lincolnshire fire Head Quarters.
Once again I quickly climbed the ladder at EPS, I got promted to electrical supervisor and was overseeing 12 other electricians. As i was still only young it was fairly daunting looking after and advising 12 other electricians, but i soon gained good communication skills and realised that people are different and some reacted well to praise and some well to criticsm. I learnt how to motivate all members of my team and knew exactly the right thing to say to the individual to get the best out of them.
As electrical supervisor i took on numerous contracts here are some listed below;
-Blocks of apartments one with 21 flats, one with 18 flats and one with 11 flats, Housing estate of 17, a £1.6million house, £1.2 million pound house. I also do all photo voltaic work, including solar panels and solar thermal.
Within the apartment contracts as listed above as well as wiring all power to each flats we also wired the communication cables and safety circuited e.g fire alarms and burglar alarms and door entry. Using cat5, cat6, 4 pair and 5 pair cables and coaxial cable. We thoroughly ensures these cables were segregated from the power cables to avoid any magnetic interference etc.
I have recently (6 months) been promoted to Electrical Qualified Supervisor. In this job role i have to visit all the jobs that are ongoing and inspect that our work is up to the correct standard. I then have to test and commission each job and 'sign it off' to the local governing body the NICEIC . I am currently overlooking a housing development of 44 houses and a public house which is being converted into student accommodation.
As well as all the major jobs that i have to inspect there are also numerous minor jobs that requiring testing and inspecting from consumer unit changes to earthing upgrades.
I am currently still employed by EPS, however I feel that while I am still fairly young it is an ideal time to challenge myself and push my knowledge to the limits. I am very enthusiastic, a fast learner and always willing to try new things within the electrical industry.
