Maintenance Fitter (Former Employee) –  ENG15 February 2015
Following management instruction for maintenance tasks, adhering to strict site safety practices and official secrets act.

A mix of fun and challenging work colleagues, an introduction to hierarchy dynamics within organisations.

I learnt about people in job roles while in this job, their prejudices and how it effects the people around them. How to manage difficult situations and how to gain support within a team to resolve problems, not to be isolated.
Pros
Regular work
Cons
No career advancement opportunity... redundancy!

excellent place to work. everybody was helpfull and friendly. i was working on a new type of armoured troop carrier called the foxhound unfortunately due to the signing of the official secrets act i am unable to go into details of this vehicle. its just a pity i was only there as a contractor to oversee the completion of this project.
Pros
excellent payrates and job satisfaction
Cons
10+ hour shifts and a daily commute of 80 miles but worth it
