"My current role is Duty Control Manager. A typical day varies hugely depending on what is occurring on the network but we manage the day to day train service resolving any issues and dealing with any incidents. I enjoy the challenge of restoring the service back to normality and resolving issues as they occur. "
I didn’t particularly enjoy school/ university, education was never my strong point but I did enjoy my lessons in Sociology which is what I went on to study at university. I find it fascinating how different we can all be as a society.
My first job after university I was an Admissions Administrator on a temporary contact at Peterborough Regional College. Following that I worked for GBRf as a TOPS Controller and then a Train Service Controller before doing what I do now.
I’ve not yet completed any formal training or further education, but I will be soon obtaining my Assessors qualification and my Trainers qualification which I’m looking forward to.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, home improvements (bit of a DIYer!) and horse riding.
