- I am an extremely hard-working person. I am always punctual, reliable and flexible. I am happy to work within a team and equally as happy and capable of working on my own.
- I am prepared to undertake further courses and training in order to make advancements in my career. I went to Australia in 2013 for 2 years to work and travel and it has given me lots of life skills and I believe it made me grow a lot as a person.
- I went out there by myself not knowing anybody but quickly made lots of new friends and was highly regarded in all the work I did by the companies I worked for. I came back to England as my 2-year visa came to an end and continued to work as an A/C engineer
HVAC Service Provider HVAC Engineer
June 2015 – April 2020 (Redundancy)
- Since returning to the U.K I found myself a job within one week with this company. For this company I carry out service and breakdowns on A/C in the retail / commercial sector.
- At the start me and one other engineer covered the whole of the Coral bookmaker’s contract all over the U.K which was roughly 2400 shops. The bulk of the work was maintenance to a high standard and any callouts to breakdowns. I would get 30 shops sent at the beginning of the week in which I had to then plan a route, book my own accommodations and complete within the week. This gave me skills to plan my own work and show that I was capable and relied on to be left to my own devices. Unfortunately, the contract went to tender and was lost.
- Since that contract has gone, I have been working on big contracts such as Network Rail, Gala Bingo’s, Lidl’s and other big-name clients. I have established myself within the company as one of the most senior engineers on the air conditioning side.
- I carry out installs, repairs, fault finding and maintenance to a high standard. I have recently installed a 3 pipe VRF system consisting of 3 twin condensers and 21 indoor systems over the 2019 / 2020 Christmas period. This was a refurbishment of a toys r us to be reverted in to a new Lidl on old Kent road, London. I was the lead engineer with just one apprentice engineer helping.
- I have pushed my company to put me through my commercial gas certificates, which I started in September 2018 and completed in august.
- So, I am now fully qualified in commercial gas, although the bulk of work I carry out is still on the A/C side and would need more experience on the gas side. I am an ambitious person who will always look to better myself as an engineer
Air Conditioning Contractor Install Engineer
April 2013 – May 2015 (Australia)
- I then travelled to Australia for just over 2 years and worked for an air conditioning contractor where I was an install engineer. The job was mainly in the domestic and commercial sector which consisted of installing and commissioning splits and ducted systems. We did a lot of work installing the systems in houses which I had not done before but once again gave me a chance to broaden my experience in the air conditioning field. In this time, I was rewarded with my own company van and phone. Sadly, my time was cut short due to my holiday working visa running out in Australia
National FM Company Service Engineer
October 2009 – April 2013
- I then moved on to one of the biggest energy companies in Europe. I was working on site at Leeds university as a service engineer.
- I worked in a team of four engineers that carried out maintenance, fault finding and repairs to the air conditioning on the whole campus.
- As the site is that big it comes with a variety of equipment to work on ranging from splits to close control circuits. I found the site a valuable place to work as I once again have gained more experience on a broad range of systems
Air Conditioning Company Air Conditioning Engineer
July 2009 – October 2009
- My third job was with a smaller air conditioning contractor.
- Here I did installation of vrv’s, splits and ducting. As I had not done a lot of installs before I again learnt a lot in a short time. We did a lot of work on big building sites installing as many as forty units.
- I found my time installing air conditioning a good and enjoyable learning curve as I now have qualities in both sides of the industry
HVAC Contractor Air Conditioning Engineer
June 2008 – July 2009
- My second job was with a large HVAC contractor where I mainly worked on big retail contracts, the main one being arcadia. This was including service and maintenance on a variety of different units all over the U.K.
- Even though I was only at the company for a short period I gained a lot of knowledge, experience and maturity. I was also on a rota for on call servicing which involved being available 24/7 for a one-week period in every six weeks
National FM Company Apprentice Engineer
August 2004 – June 2008
- This was my first position after leaving school I was employed as an apprentice engineer. For my first 2 years I learnt and gained knowledge and experience from good senior engineers.
- I worked on big contracts throughout the country and had a variety of work from installs, repairs and maintenance. This was on splits, VRV’s and sometimes chillers.
- When I achieved my NVQ Level 2 I was awarded with my 1st van and gradually started going out on jobs by myself.
- In my last year at the company I worked mainly on my own which made me grow as an engineer
