To whom it may concern:
Colin was employed by VolkerStevin Ltd (formerly Harbour & General Works Ltd) from July 1990 to February 2010.
As a Senior Engineer, and subsequently as a Project Manager, Colin supervised construction operations on Tyneside and Teesside, and in North Yorkshire and North Lancashire. His experience covers a broad spectrum of civil engineering, such as river and coastal flood defence works, harbour works, land remediation works, building works, and water/wastewater treatment process facilities.
In 2003, Colin was redeployed in a Company-wide role as a Business Systems Co-ordinator, and subsequently Quality Manager, reporting to the Business Improvement Manager.
Duties included contributing to the following:
· Development, implementation and maintenance of documented business procedures covering management of quality, environment, and health and safety issues
· Development, implementation and monitoring of key performance indicators covering aspects of business delivery, process, efficiency and stakeholder management
· Internal quality auditing in both site and office environments, and liaison with Certification body representatives
· Aspects of supply chain management, including supplier and sub-contractor assessment, on and off-site inspection in the UK and Netherlands, and expediting activity on a project-specific basis
· Research associated with problem solving in aspects of materials and workmanship, particularly concrete
· Development and delivery of training modules to both new starters (induction) and experienced staff on topics of quality control and enhancement
Colin has a high level of IT ability in software applications, effectively demonstrated when preparing reports, managing documents, data processing, storage and retrieval, and preparing training presentations.
I have no hesitation in recommending Colin to you as an approachable, self-motivated and experienced civil engineer, with capability to deliver a high level of service and support to satisfy your needs.
