What our employees tell us:
What I love about this job is the variety. You might be surveying equipment in a supermarket warehouse in the morning, working in a hospital in the lunch-time, and finally finishing your day testing a lift in an office block. Although you tend to liaise with the same person, you meet lots of different people on the job. No two days are the same.
You’ve really got to be able to think on your feet. It’s very unpredictable, and you might find yourself inspecting a piece of machinery you’ve not come across before you're constantly learning new things.
I originally did an apprenticeship in aeronautical engineering, and then moved to Zurich as I’d heard good things about the company. I had 14 or 15 weeks training, going out in the field with surveyors and trainers, then took my exams. Going out on your own was a bit daunting at first, but there’s a strong team behind you. You’re constantly learning new things.
There are lots of opportunities to progress your career in Zurich, perhaps by becoming a team leader, or by moving into the technical side of things. At the moment I’m really happy with what I do. It’s so rewarding to do an inspection and know that people now can be sure a piece of kit is safe to use.
