Prior to joining the ORE Catapult, I worked in the construction industry for Balfour Beatty and Bachy Soletanche as part of the Competent Person Programme. I am a trained tele-handler, fork-lift and Mobile Elevation Working Platform (MEWP) operator. Initially, I joined the organisation as an operator and rigger working in the high voltage test laboratory but I later joined the operations team working in multiple facilities across the site at Blyth.
