Name: Ed Hall
Position: Trainee Site Engineer
Held Role Since: August 2016
Studied: Level 3 Diploma Construction & The Built Environment
Describe Your Role: I have been at Winvic for 2 years now, starting out as a gateman before moving on to site as a labourer, then chainman, and progressed to working as a trainee engineer as my skills grew on site. Keeping on top of many different processes, schedules and subcontractor roles can be difficult when the project is in a busy phase, but I like being busy and I’m getting more confident with the support of colleagues. Over the next two years I hope to successfully complete my college apprenticeship to help me work as a more competent engineer, to continue with learning to support my development in the engineering role on site, and also be working at Winvic as they believe in their employees.
Advice for people wanting to join Winvic? If you want to be presented with new challenges every day and then see the solutions that you’ve worked really hard on come to life in front of your eyes, you’ll love it at Winvic! I’d tell applicants to be confident in what they already know but don’t be afraid to ask questions because being open to learning is important.
