Grounds Maintenance Operative

The prospect of completing projects and providing exceptional service while knowing I will be well rewarded for my efforts provides my motivation. Knowing the harder I work the more my family will benefit ensures I work to the best of my abilities every day.

In the summer, a great deal of extra works are undertaken which can mean early starts and working over the weekend. This extra work is not only positive in terms of financial rewards but also in terms of my personal health. I have spent more time outdoors, in the countryside and exploring various parts of the UK than I would have in any other profession.

I am often involved in planting shrubs and trees while also providing follow up maintenance works. I recently supervised a planting and maintenance project and was blessed with an incredible feeling of accomplishment to see my team’s work blossom into a beautiful planting scheme on a previously bare location.

One of the most exciting prospects of my job is that every day is different from the last. One day I could be spending a day mowing a lawn on the side of a river bank on a warm summer’s day and the next I will be working on tree maintenance projects in the middle of a forest. This job is far from monotonous and it is this aspect that keeps me looking forward to every new challenge.

I know I get out what I put in, so the harder I work alongside my teams the more able I am to provide for my family.

Contracts Manager Arb Rail

The anticipation of not knowing what each day is going to bring is what keeps me excited and looking forward to each day at work. In the rail industry you are often dealing with a 24 hour service meaning you never know what is lying around the corner, so my most valuable quality is being able to react to each job as it arises.

Each challenge is different from the last meaning you can never be standing still or you will fail to overcome the next obstacle. To be available for each client at any hour of the day is an exceptional thrill, while nothing can beat the feeling of knowing you have been able to complete a job safely and efficiently.

The reality of my job is that it is 24 hours a day. You need to be available for multiple clients, especially within the transport industry where a single incident can lead to a backlog of delays across a whole network. The role is extremely reactive and very much the opposite of planned grounds maintenance work. Clients here expect instantaneous responses with fast results to ensure minimal disruption to track lines.

Despite it being an endless task to ensure the smooth operation of multiple client tracks and access routes, I know I am making a difference for thousands of people commuting each day. Additionally, you can complete multiple jobs for a single client and each one is as satisfying as the last because you are able to build a lasting and trusting relationship indicating that they not only believe in your service but also rely on it.

Regional Operations Manager

Despite being able to organise yourself, your work and managing large-scale projects, there is little consistency in terms of daily hours; however, this is something I love! Some days you could spend 8-9 hours travelling in the car. Yet on the flip side you are also able to work in the comfort of your home on other days which can be priceless. Time management, organisation, self-discipline and communication are essential when working as a Regional Operations Manager.

I love the fact that I am able to go to work and know exactly what I am doing and when. One of the key aspects of this job is the ability to manage your time effectively.

Knowing that I am the hub of a large amount of the work is extremely rewarding. I spend large amounts of time liaising with clients and our Key Account Managers, which makes me an essential component to keep the company ticking over.

We won an extension to our Thames Water contract in 2013 and we were rewarded for our great work on the initial contract with a much larger area to manage. Upon entering the contract we were given the job of clearing 22 miles of concrete with vegetation built up over 10-12 years situated on the banks of large expanses of water with a 12 month target to complete a project.

We were able to attain the right teams and equipment to manage the job efficiently, safely and to a high standard. This is just one example of the varying challenges that I face on a daily basis.

There is nothing more motivational than knowing you are working in a company that is continuously growing, highlighted by us being well on the way to producing £100m turnover by the year 2020.
