Building site labourer: Search recruitment
I am working as a building site labourer to get some experience having gone straight onto university from school I felt I needed a little roughing up so to speak. I have enjoyed my time on the site finding out how well I could cope with the work and with the banter. I have been on a couple of sites and feel I’ve gained a heck of a lot of experience and now feel very comfortable on a building site. At the moment I am on a ROK building site working as the joiner’s labourer, my days are spent bringing materials mostly plasterboard up stairs supplying ten joiners all spread out over the building. I don’t want to claim it’s more than it is, but labouring isn’t just physical but a logistical task too. To go round all the joiners throughout the day and find out who needs what and how much we have left to go around at any given time.
Duties include housekeeping, moving of building materials, concrete mixing and screeding also working with tools such as the concrete breaker and still saw. I often work with the site scaffolder either bringing up or passing down scaffolding.
November 2007 – January 08
Bar and waiter staff: Bowfield Hotel and Country Club
I worked as part of the floor staff in the restaurant, function hall and bar of this hotel. General tasks of this role were to maintain clear communications between the customer and the kitchen staff whilst clearing tables, preparing the function hall, taking orders and serving. It is important in this role to have a good memory and be able to multitask, as often you will be asked a question by a customer whilst taking care of another task.
Skills gained: Communication skills between customers and other staff.
In this position my role was to work 4 x 12 hour nightshifts per week as part of the audit and shipping of completed computer servers destined for all over Europe. Speed and concentration were essential at this part of the process in order to keep ahead of the constant influx of completed servers ready for shipping.
Ability to work under pressure for long hours (I am aware that the hours of work can be much longer in the oil & gas industry, I mention this only to point out that I am keen and willing to work long hours as I have experienced in the past.)
Communication with other staff and managers.
3. Education & Training - CV/Resume Part 3 [Mandatory]
2004 – 2007 University of the West of Scotland (Paisley)
BSc Earth Science with Chemistry with distinction
Subjects covered include structural geology, GIS, Earth surface environments, minerals & mineral resources, the Earth’s interior, practical geological methods, surveying, organic chemistry and analytical chemistry.
Practical skills are given large focus at UWS. From fieldwork skills on identifying and mapping geological structures to laboratory skills, working with thin section microscopy or geophysical readouts. Also taking from my chemistry background I have experience with apparatus used in a modern analytical laboratory.
Team work has been an essential skill for group presentations and for geological fieldtrips. For example groups were left to accurately map the area around Hutton’s Unconformity on Arran and by the end of the day hand in their map and individual field notebooks detailing the stations visited to construct the map. It was vital to work together to make sense of what we saw and report our findings. Additionally I am comfortable and confident working individually if and when required.
