Having served in the Army for just under five years I have learnt a lot about getting a job done,and getting it done properly. It also taught me discipline, commitment and loyalty which is something I will have for the rest of my life.
I also worked for the MOD in an Engineering/Operations role. Providing Assistance to the Production Planner I co-supervised/created automotive processes on site in order to manage the customers expectations. I have lived abroad and I am aware of the challenges.
I am a hard working individual with a passion for progression. I have a “nothing is impossible” work ethos and will do whatever it takes to complete my task. I am always broadening my knowledge base on all aspects of my career in order for me to develop myself further.
Production Planning Assistant
Babcock International – Tewkesbury
October 2014 to Present
Working out of the Operations Office my job is to assist the Production Planner to help deliver a smooth, efficient and cost effective cycle of work through the site. We provide time estimates on work to be completed on a wide range of military vehicles and where it is not cost or time effective for us to do the work we would then contract it out to a different site. Our customer (Army HQ) places orders on vehicles and equipment to be delivered or collected from our site and it is our job to make sure that this equipment is repaired to a high standard.
I use a number of software packages such as Tranman Series 9, Crystal Reports, MS Access and Microsoft Office. I produce Job cards for work, monthly reports on work that has been completed and also report on what we have processed through the inspections department. I also liaise with TFSU (Theatre Fleet Support Unit) UK and provide them with information regarding time statuses on orders so as we can advise the customer on whether to request a target date extension.
During my time as a Production Planning Assistant I helped to deliver a successful BATUS (British Army Training Unit Suffield, Canada) Project. With all of the ordered vehicles reaching the port for sailing in excellent condition, they were able to deliver the vehicles on time. I also took part in the new uplift project for the Foxhound Light Armoured Vehicle. I provided up to date information on vehicle repair statuses and also monitered the logistics matrix to ensure that the vehicles were where they needed to be at any given time.
In this role my time management and organisation needed to be of the highest standard. I regularly conversed with top level members of the military and on occasion the head of site. I also had to extract and analyse information on a daily basis which I did so with comparative ease.
When the Production Planner was not here I stepped into his shoes which required a very apt attention to detail and the ability to make confident decisions. Having only been in the job since October last year I would say I performed this task very effectively and learnt the job very quickly. I also used JAMES (Joint Asset Management and Engineering Solutions) which is a fleet management computer system.
Bowman Communications Operative
Defence Support Group – Tewkesbury
February 2014 to October
Working as a communications operative my tasks have included the effective receipt and processing of military grade communications equipment. Alongside these roles I have travelled nationwide fitting communications equipment to Military Vehicles. Part of my job was to create a build of equipment to supply the fitters with, this task involved a high level of accuracy as we had to adhere to specific design lines for each variant of vehicle.
I then moved on to become Team-Leader for a project that seen over a thousand vehicles being made fit for deployment as part of a rapid reaction force contingency for the British Army. I managed a group of 6 staff and was responsible for the recording of hours and allocation of work, plus any matters of a supervisory nature.
Rifleman – 5th Battalion the Rifles
British Army, Paderborne, Germany
May 2009 to Jan 2014
As a Rifleman my first and foremost role was to learn and develop as a ground fighting soldier. Since we were an Armoured Battalion my second job was to drive and maintain our Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles. Along with my core skills such as communications and navigation I also learnt how to operate the Javelin weapons system and also how to speak Pashto(Afghani) for which I became proficient in.
I was also called up to work at the London Olympics which saw a contingent from the Armed forces assist with the security of the games to provide a safe atmosphere for Athletes and Spectators alike.
