During my time with The Smart Actuator Company my pre-existing skill set grew exponentially. One of the major responsibilities was interaction with the customer and end users of our products, as we had developed a new innovative and smart actuator, I would go out to them, demonstrate the capabilities, train their staff in the configuration, and set-up and install if required. This service, with our innovation was paramount, education was both crucial and necessary. I wrote easy-to-follow documentation to assist our customers in the use of our products. Any failures on site, I would visit them and diagnose the problem or replace the product, always leaving the customer satisfied, then, following up the visit with a detailed report of the fault."

I am an experienced Project Coordinator and Quality Technician with experience working in QA, QC, Planning and Procurement. I have 5 years experience working in the Oil & Gas sector. Under my current employer I manage the quarantine and rectification of internal and external non-conforming parts. I have experience managing a quality system, planning and ensuring the flow of projects, strategic sourcing, as well as investigating Root Cause Analysis and cost irregularities.
I am an outgoing and flexible individual who enjoys working with and assisting all aspects of the business. I currently work closely with Inspection, Projects, and Purchasing but I have also assisted finance and sales in the past. I enjoy forming new relationships with colleagues, suppliers and customers and I take a direct approach to problem solving and developing processes.
I completed my Degree in History and Political Science at Northumbria University in 2011. My degree took a great level of commitment and attention to detail. I have shown in my dissertation that I am not afraid to take risks by choosing a topic that was not covered in any of my courses.

BEL Valves (British Engines) / Supplier Quality Technician & Commodity Specialist
MARCH 2018 - SEPTEMBER 2020.

Initially working in the Supplier Development team, my role was to monitor supplier performance and assist with technical queries. I was part of a team responsible for;
- Monitoring Quality & Delivery performance
- Communicating drawing, inspection and test requirements
- Gathering Root Cause Analysis & Corrective Actions
- Submitting Credit Request & Supplier Quality Concerns
- Updating the Approved Supplier Register
In June 2018 I took on a new role working between the Quality & Purchasing departments. This role was designed to coordinate the required rework activities to non-conforming parts. I work closely with Inspection, Projects and Design to identify faults, liability and corrective actions for incoming parts. Once suitable corrective actions are approved I then arrange this with our manufacturing and / or welding suppliers to ensure that only quality approved products advance to Assembly & Test. In addition to this I also manage BEL Valves Non-Conformance Register and sub-contract Welding activities. I attend daily operations meetings to flag up new quality concerns as well as update all areas of the business on current rework and weld. This enables A&T to plan for build accordingly.
My current day to day activities are as follows;
- Raise Non-Conformances
- Advise Project Engineering of Defects
- Co-ordinate Required Rework & Sub-Contract Welding
- Co-ordinate Engineering Changes � Drawing / ITP etc.
- Review Non-Destructive Testing Reports
- Control Quarantined parts.
- Quality Assurance & Release of Parts to build.
- Plan Inspection of Parts

MKW Engineering (Pryme Group) / Document Controller & Project Coordinator
MAY 2016 � MARCH 2018,

Starting in 2016 as the MKW�s Document Controller I was responsible for the following;
- Internal Documentation Control
- Updated Documentation Register
- Produce detailed Documentation Packs for MKW�s clients such as Samsung, Aker Solutions, BAE systems & Technip FMC
- Create Job Packs; these included Work Instructions, Material Details & Drawings required to progress with the job.
- Raised Internal Quality Alerts; these were raised whenever a deviation was found during the Inspection process.
- Implemented �work to� sheets for the Inspection Department that detailed client documentation requirements.

In 2017 I began my role as a Project Coordinator for MKW�s sister company Stargate Precision Engineering. The majority of my time was spent shop floor. I ensured the continuous flow of projects running through SPE�s machine shop; sourcing material, issuing job sheets, internal and external expediting and arranging inspection and delivery. I also continued in my Document Control job at SPE and once a job was complete I gathered all required documentation together and delivered to the customer. My time at SPE was the most rewarding of my career and I thrived in the busy and demanding nature of my role. My day to day responsibilities consisted of;
- Coordinating the flow of jobs on the shop floor
- Ordering material and booking in.
- Prioritising jobs dependent on delivery and lead time
- Expediting
- Financial and WIP reporting.
- Arranging transport for delivery
- Creating relevant documentation pack for customers

My time at MKW was hugely rewarding and I obtained a diverse skillset as a result of working in varying roles across different departments. In addition to my work as Document Controller & Project Coordinator I also assisted the finance department during audits. During this process I was charged with providing the auditors with information relating to; delivery and invoicing, inter-company transfers, material and tooling costs and more

Following a difficult lockdown period I am keen and motivated to get back into work, and am open to a wide range of opportunities. As my employment history shows, I have experience in the Oil & Gas sector, but I would be equally enthusiastic for a fresh challenge in a new environment.
