Q. What part of the company do you work for and what is your role?
A. I am a Service Layer for Morrison Utility Services working on gas mains replacement as part of the Western Gas Alliance.
Q. How long have you been with us and what did you do before joining us?
A. Before joining Morrison Utility Services, I served 11 years in the Army as part of the Royal Engineers. I have now been with Morrison Utility Services for seven months.
Q. What attracted you to this role and industry in the first place?
A. What attracted me to the industry was the importance of the work that needs to be carried out and the technical practices that need to be put in place to ensure the safe replacement of the gas mains. Also, the development and progression potential within Morrison Utility Services was very attractive. It was the ideal place to start my new career after leaving the Royal Engineers.
Q. What are your hobbies?
A. My hobbies consist of rugby and running, when I am not busy being a dad to my two young kids.
Q. How have you grown with us?
A. For me, it has been a steep learning curve. Being able to learn and develop my knowledge everyday has been beneficial, so much so that in the time I have been here. I have completed my service laying course and am now ‘CAT’ and ‘Genny’ trained. Morrison Utility Services have already offered me more training and development for the future than I could have expected in this short time.
Q. What would you tell people who want to work in this industry?
A. To people interested in joining this industry, I would fully recommend it. If you want to challenge yourself and want a career not just a job, as well as a sense of achievement each week, then this industry is for you.
Q. Would you recommend working for us?
A. I would 100% recommend Morrison Utility Services to others. I have already done this by attending the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) Events as a representative of Morrison Utility Services to chat and explain what we have to offer to service leavers from the military.
