Working in maintenance at Fawley gives me plenty of scope to do the sort of jobs I enjoy most. Although I have to cope with paperwork I keep it under control. A lot of my record keeping involves using computers and so I have developed these skills.
I have to make sure that the site runs smoothly and that all the important maintenance jobs are carried out. I plan the jobs that need doing but I sometimes have to deal with unexpected problems as they arise. I make sure the maintenance workforce know what they are doing and carry their tasks out properly and on time. I have to deal with a variety of people and lead them in a way that helps them to achieve success.
I start work at 6.45 hrs when I go through any new jobs that have arisen overnight. I then get the team started on work we have planned. I tour the site as necessary to check at first hand what needs doing. I plan ahead for jobs that will need doing in the future, so I have to look at the labour and materials we’ll need.
We have a meeting each day to discuss site issues. Later I check around the site again to see that maintenance work is being carried out efficiently and safely. My working day ends at about 16.00 hrs when I hand over to the next shift.
