Seeing a project through from start to finish is my biggest motivator but I also really enjoy the different areas of work – from assembly through to test and QA.
I’d say that the challenges in delivering inspections are what make it interesting. Working with clients often brings a challenge because expectations and requirements can change but I find that networking and building strong relationships are some of the essential ways to manage this.
Ensuring that quality specification is met and delivered is so important and inspectors contribute a huge amount of value to problem solving during projects to help with their smooth completion.
I think always being willing to learn from others who are more experienced means you are constantly developing and pushing for progression in the role.
I’ve been an inspector for just over a year now so the projects I’m currently working on were my first introduction to inspection and are as interesting today as they were at the start.
They’re honest, factual and easy to talk to but the biggest thing they’ve helped me with is my own development and confidence within my new role.
