Read Jessica's story about her temporary role as Assistant Technical Officer 

JessicaPearsonFMy highlights so far during my temporary position as Assistant Technical Officer are definitely the change in my personal time management; I have had the freedom to plan my own schedule for the week as I have been out of the office a lot, being trusted to do so from my manager has given me confidence in the work I am doing.

Applying my current technical knowledge and putting it practical use has been encouraging for me. I have been taking full advantage of the knowledge our Contractors and Technical Officers have shared with me whilst out onsite, it has been continuous learning and training, which I am lucky to have had.

Most of all, the opportunity I have been given to throw myself into this role has made it clearer for me which type of career I would like to follow. Although taking a step into such male dominated industry, it has made me more motivated to pursue it. I hope to further my training and apply for a permanent job in the future.
