Name: Kyle Adams
Position: Project Engineer
How long have you been in your role?
I joined Diamond in 2008 when I left school, on the Apprenticeships NI Programme. During my 3 year training contract I attended Belfast Met for part of the week and completed NVQ Levels 2 & 3 in Security Alarms.
Describe a typical day?
A typical day consists of being out on the road, usually with an apprentice who assists me, carrying out routine and reactive maintenance, or installation, commissioning and handovers of fire alarm, intruder alarm and CCTV systems. I was recently promoted to Project Engineer, so the jobs I am working on are the more complex contracts undertaken by the company.
How would you describe the culture within Diamond?
I would say Diamond is a very friendly place to work and all of our work is completed to a very high standard. For me, joining over ten years ago as a school leaver, it has been a great place to learn about the main principles of the job, and there is good teamwork throughout the whole company.
What do you like most about your role?
I like the variety of my job. I like the fact that usually I am not working in the same place for 8 hours every day, and that the next day I am more than likely going to be carrying out different tasks than what I was doing the day before.
