What made you decide to work in public service building control?
In honesty I joined as an apprentice when I was 17 and knew nothing about building control, but after almost four years I am so glad I ended up doing this for my job.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
It's always different, so much variety in the projects we come across and always challenging situations which I love.
What’s a typical day like in building control?
Talking to builders whether it's booking inspections, giving technical advice etc., inputting and registering applications, pre-application advice, finance, fire risk assessments. The list goes on!
How are your studies positively affecting your day to day role and your career prospects?
They massively motivated me to go on and pursue the Level 4. I've never been more clear on what I want to do for a career.
What’s next for you in your career?
Hopefully the Levels 4 and 5 Building Control Surveying - I want to get out on site looking at all the projects we receive so I can see it at all stages of the process.
