How would your describe your responsibilities?
A leading hand structures the shift on a day to day basis. I do that by organising and coaching my team members so they can do their job safely with a focus on quality and production.
Traditionally in the countryside, not much has changed which allows my family and I to enjoy a relaxed and enjoyable lifestyle. Moreover I have a great balance of living on the coast and only having to travel 30 minutes to work, which is perfect.
