We're responsible for about 25,000km (15,500 miles) of public roads together with about 9,500km (6,000 miles) of footways, plus bridges, street lights and public car parks.
While working I also volunteered as a STEMNET ambassador to inspire young people about science, technology, engineering and maths. This is something I feel is important and would like to continue to do.
In 2012, having completed a BTEC qualification and work experience, I became a technician member. I joined ICE because I wanted my experience to be recognised by an internationally respected engineering body.
I think I’ve definitely received more recognition for qualifying as a technician member and I feel very proud for achieving this. It should stand in my favour for future promotions and open up doors for me within the industry.
I would say to any aspiring technicians: get the most out of your job, listen to your colleagues and learn from them. And, most of all, get your head down and work hard – it'll pay off.
