Productive but also quite safety aware
Ammunition Accountant (Current Employee) – Blackwater, Surrey – 14 November 2017
Working with ammunition it is not a normal kind of job as you can appreciate, there's a safety awareness element. The job itself runs under the electronic calendar.
Organising the issue of ammunition on daily bases, making sure all requests have been authorised and security forms attached to it including safety data sheets.
The ammunition is checked every Thursday via a system called Oracle and once done, stocktake is printed out to be rechecked by a Duty Manager.
A month in arrears all ammunition course requests are checked and ammunition is counted per item and matched with what's in stock to assess the need to be restocked via an Ammunition Depot. we called it external demand.
This involves transport booking and military escort requirement.
The hardest part it is the external demand of ammunition as it is quite detailed and it needs as much accurate as possible. Very tiring to the eye.
Part of my job is the responsibility of Catering Services account. Although I am not the camp 'Local Purchase Officer' since 2012 the Site Ops Officer made me responsible of this account due to the large amount of services they provide. And sometimes still fill the gap by solving any other issues requested by Management.
Local Purchase is a part of my job that I most and absolutely loved, but due to the company restructure they decided to obsolete all single posts.
