‘I am a highly motivated, experienced and multi skilled engineer / project manager currently working within research and development for a world leading medical company.

Starting out as a jig and fixture toolmaker gave me a solid grounding in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and the skills needed to problem solve accurately and efficiently. During my time in employment I have gained knowledge and experience in many different disciplines from machining precision components and fabricating complex structures to managing technical and business projects and implementing lean manufacturing/six sigma studies/processes in multiple business areas.

I enjoy the challenges that engineering and project management bring to everyday life and constantly strive to carry out all work to the best of my ability. I am now focusing on developing my managerial and financial skills with a prospect to move forward as a project / program manager across multiple industries in the future’.
