Document Control Assistant Manager

Jade

Jade is a Document Control Assistant Manager in the operations department and has been at Watkins for 7 years. She first started in our customer care team and has progressed to a document controller, spending time both in the office and out on site. She loves the mix of work she undertakes and having a relationship with people in the office and out on site who you might not normally interact with.

We can ask for training and Watkins will look into and arrange for us. We have training on all the different software programs we use such as Biosite and training for different types of paperwork, for example electrical paperwork.

How long have you been working for Watkins?
7 years!

Have you seen lots of changes over your time here?
Yes, loads! It was quite small when I first started in customer care and it feels like it’s expanded really quickly.

What does your department do?
It’s a mixture of on site and in the office, I go to site and arrange all the paperwork and with their administration bits. I induct new people and in the office I do drawings and all the commissioning paperwork. It’s a real mix which is nice.

What’s the favourite part about your job?
I love the mix. I like going into the office and seeing people on site – especially if you only work in the office, you’d never see the site workers, it’s nice to have a relationship with both. The team is really nice too.

Has there been an increase of women on site?
It’s still something to work on. There are a few but it’s still quite male dominated. The other women I see are usually in administration for other companies and not site workers.

Have you got some career progression in mind?
My manager has recently gone to part time hours, so I have just been promoted to Assistant Manager.

Do you do training?
We can ask for training and Watkins will look into and arrange for us. We have training on all the different software programs we use such as Biosite and training for different types of paperwork, for example electrical paperwork.
