Project Assurance Manager (Former Employee) – UK and Middle East – 11 January 2018
Initially, based in the corporate office in Langley, Berkshire, UK for 6 years. Great opportunity to work with different parts of the organisation to collaborate on continually improving the existing SHEQ system into a more user friendly IT based system, directed at project use. Overcame a lot of IT and cultural issues, but in the end was very proud of the collective outcome in the UK and USA. Later took the challenge of working in post war Iraq (2004) in a joint venture with Fluor to rebuild electricity and water infrastructure, through out the country. Spent a lot of time mentoring the locals in the fundamentals of Quality within projects. Completed my time with AMEC, by becoming a Project Assurance Manager at the "sharp end" on several projects throughout the UK
A failing company who is run by tin-pot managers / chief engineers who think they can treat people with no respect at all. not one of them would make it in the real world. Worst place I have ever worked in my 30+ years of contracting.
I didnt work there for long
bullying, treated like scum, people so scared of the management they walk around like zombies with their heads down.

After 17 years on a refinery, I have spent 4 years learning about gas production. The shift are a bunch of nice guys to work with. Have worked with better management. The shift pattern is the hardest as it has recently been changed. There is no Scottish rep so trying to make contact is hard. Overall, I have had an opportunity to further my knowledge & develop my skills
