British Army
Lance Corporal – Communications Specialist

April 2012 – October 2016

My job within the regiment was maintaining, installing and operating communications equipment. In my role as a Detachment Commander I was responsible not only for my communications platform but also for my two crew members. My day to day task within camp was to maintain the equipment under my control and to supervise my crew members in their daily work.

As Commander It was my responsibility to ensure £750,000 worth of equipment was accounted for and that our rigorous maintenance and servicing schedule was completed to the time lines agreed.
This information was stored in a filing system known as a ‘detachment folder’, it was my responsibility to maintain this record that had to be extremely accurate due to its use to account for cryptographic material and a number of other security sensitive items.

Providing communications for the 3rd (UK) Division headquarters was a very customer focused role making sure the staff officers of the formation had the correct communications solution for any
situation. Excellent verbal communications skills and an outgoing personality were a must for this position, especially when dealing with Generals.

Working for the Preston recruitment office I was responsible for the recruitment of officers and soldiers into the Royal Signals. Looking at applicant’s abilities and qualifications to make a decision as to whether or not they were suited for a career in the communications industry.

Awarded Officer Commander Commendation for exceptional service.
