We are proud that Careers in Plant Operator Iain Campbell features in HS2’s Newsletter!
Iain discusses his experiences throughout the pandemic and training with Lynch...
“I was made redundant last May from my job as a data centre team manager having worked in IT for over 30 years,” says father-of-five Iain Campbell. “Covid meant everywhere just shut down and I couldn’t find another job. I was applying for about three jobs a day… it was mentally challenging, almost to the point where I was close to suffering depression.
I hadn’t thought about construction before and then I saw a news report about EKFB offering free training, so I looked it up on the website. The chance to drive big machines floated my boat. If you look at the bigger picture, there’s a lot of construction projects around, so there’s going to be plenty of work.
“I did the articulated dump truck training with provider Apple Construction. I was a bit nervous about operating a 20-tonne machine, but I took my test and got my ticket. I’m now working with L Lynch Plant Hire who put me through further training, so I’m now qualified to operate a roller, forward tipping dumper and track dumper."
I’m still getting used to construction but the job I’m on now is brilliant. It’s a massive infrastructure project and I’d love to do more on HS2. The training has been a fantastic opportunity.
