Having worked in the electrical industry for over 15 years I have been privileged to work on some amazing projects during this time. After I completed my full City and Guilds electrical apprenticeship in 2008 at Hertford Regional College I set out working with various electrical contractors plying my trade and learning more everyday.
From changing light fittings and adding new sockets to full wiring of new installations of high rise tower blocks and football stadiums there have been many variety's of location and types of installation which has led me to this point of having my own business.
In 2010 I moved into electrical maintenance with the FM company Carillion working in commercial offices in Central London. This role gave me the opportunity to learn new skills such as carpentry, painting and decorating, plumbing and taught me first hand the importance of planned maintenance.
Later in 2012 I became a full electrical engineer with Spie Matthew Hall tasked with the upkeep and maintenance of Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre. As a Spurs fan this was a dream job and one I would have for many years soon eventually moving in-house and working directly for the club.
As I increased my training I became a fully qualified Facilities Manager with the BIFM allowing me to take on the role as Maintenance Manager for Tottenham and giving me the opportunity to build and train my own team.
The projects kept getting bigger and the club proceeded with the build of the new Tottenham Stadium which I was offered a role as an Assistant Technical Manager to help oversee the construction and build a planned maintenance programme for the maintenance team and contractors.
Following a successful first season in the new stadium I then joined UEFA as Venue Technical Manager based at Wembley stadium coordinating the infrastructure and overlay for Euro 2020.
