Ciaran Walsh
My currently role is quite different and often reliant on others to complete certain parts of work before I could progress my workload which can be frustrating but once youíre aware of it you can plan accordingly. The outdoors element of the role are quite varied as I could be looking at a greenfield site that is potentially being planted, in a mature forest considering a forest plan, inspecting a felling licence or a claimed site. There is a variety to the role which makes it quite appealing.
