Projects Engineer Paul Dimelow says asking annoying questions has helped him develop his career with Lankelma.
Paul took up the role of Projects Engineer in September, after two years as a CPT operator.
“I joined Lankelma in 2015, starting out as a trainee. I was a complete geotechnical investigation novice but was soon asking my new colleagues many (probably) annoying questions about what a CPT actually was and how it worked,” Paul said.
“Two years on – and MANY more annoying questions later – I am now working in the Project Management team, ensuring our jobs run as smoothly and successfully as possible. With the ever-growing demand for CPT testing, I am expecting to be kept very busy with many varying and interesting projects for many years to come.”
Paul said he really enjoyed his time as a CPT operator, which saw him work all over the UK – from the Scottish Highlands to central London.
“Every day brought a new experience, meeting different people in many different environments, but now I am looking forward to a more settled but equally-demanding role working at the heart of the Lankelma family.”
Hopefully Paul’s fellow office workers will be as willing as our CPT operators to answer all of his questions – it certainly seems to have been a good career development strategy!
