Lead Electrical Engineer
Fairly Young, Helpful
I live in Scunthorpe with my wife and two children. I like going to music gigs, going away in our motorhome and lifting weights.
I work at a power station which supplies the whole country with power
I am a lead electrical engineer at a power station in Killingholme, Lincolnshire. I am in charge of running the engineering department which includes several engineers. We make sure that the plant doesnt break down and if it does we also make sure that we fix it as quickly and as safely as possible. Below is a picture of part of the power station from the entrance
My Typical Day: I work from 8am until 4pm, i make sure everyone is happy with what they are doing and have all the things they need. I have lunch around 12 oclock and then look at planning work for people to do
I arrive at work at 8am. I normally get a drink and some breakfast when i arrive and go round and speak to everyone to make sure everyone is ok. At 9am we have a team meeting to discuss any problems that people may have and what everyone will be working on that day. After this we get on with the jobs we have planned.
Around 12 oclock we have dinner together. Around 1pm we carry on with jobs and mek sure everyone is doing what they said
Around 3.30pm we have a meeting with our bosses to discuss anything that has happened
