What’s your job title?
Production Technician Apprentice.
Where do you work?
I’m based in Brett and work at Horsley Cross treatment site.
How long have you worked at Affinity Water?
I have worked for Affinity Water for 3 and a ½ years.
Tell us about your role – what does a normal day’s work include?
As a production technician apprentice, my day consists of meeting at Horsley Cross first thing and chatting with the standby technician to see if they’ve had any problems/call outs. I then look to plan my day through AMIS which involves carrying out maintenance across the Brett area.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I really enjoy working with the team and tackling different problems on a day to day basis. I love my job because it varies so much! For example, I could be responsible for the unloading of a chemical delivery at Horsley Cross. Whereas, other days I could be working on a mechanical breakdown or even fixing an electrical fault.
If you could swap jobs with anyone here for the day who would it be and why?
I think it would be the water quality team to see the varieties of water treatment processes and how the water is analysed to ensure its safe for our customers.
