There is a lot of social media focus on Soilfix and the projects that we are working on, but none of this would be possible without our valued employees.
From pumping injection wells in the cold to recording waste tickets from the comfort of a warm office, every employee plays a vital and valuable role.
The ‘Employee Spotlight’ series introduces you to our staff and in turn, gives a round of literary applause to each.
We continue this series for January with Luke Walsh who is one of our Assistant Project Managers, based at our Bristol Office.
Name: Luke Walsh
Job Title: Assistant Project Manager
- Briefly describe how you spend your day?
A typical day at Soilfix involves a visit to the site of an ongoing project. This involves liaising with site staff to see how works are progressing, discussing what is going well, and what can be improved. Secondly, it involves assisting in any technical duties that may be required. While in the office (or working from home where possible), I am often working on various types of reports and documentation or communicating with clients, sub-contractors, and internal staff. This is all usually done with lots of cups of tea!
