Being able to go on-site and be exposed to different parts of the business - you get a taste of everything. My favourite thing is probably going on-site to deliver information to Engineers and supervisors, to let them know if things have passed or not. You are really important and valued on-site and everyone asks you for information. Having that responsibility is great.
I ensure all concrete, aggregates and asphalts are tested to make sure they’re fit for purpose and in line with the required standards. As well as running checks on materials, I’m responsible for calibrating machines and analysing statistics. A lot of the work is on-site.
