Hugh Rose joined WES in April 2021 as an Electrical Design Engineer. Hugh works within the Capital Projects department at WES. We asked Hugh a few questions to find out more about him!
Can you tell us about your role?
The role is to aid the senior electrical engineer both within the confines of the factory and on site. This also includes working with the commissioning engineers and technical staff to ensure any details on the drawings are kept up to date. It also involves ensuring that any designs for site distribution both inside and outside the unit are compliant to the latest wiring and water authority regulations, following with the design specification and cable calculations for final documentation.
What has it been like working for WES so far?
Coming from outside the business it has been a bit of an eye opener, the workload is building as I become more acquainted with procedures and compliance issues. The company has a very pleasant working atmosphere with easy interaction between staff and departments.
Tell us about your career path?
My career has been varied to say the least, starting as a Weapons guidance engineering apprentice in the Royal Navy, then training and qualifying as an approved electrician, moving into Film and TV production, running my own business for 20 years and then finally into electrical management and design culminating in a move to WES early this year, managing IEng. accreditation and membership of the IET along the way.
What are your interests outside of work?
Outside work I collect and restore analogue sound equipment and have a small music studio at home left over from my TV days. I also enjoy travelling and spending time with my grandchildren.
