I work at Heathrow Airport
Mechanical Engineer, based in London. Big fan of rugby, F1 and generally anything nerdy!
I am from County Mayo, Ireland. I live in Staines upon Thames, near London. Moved here for my job in January 2016. I have a nice flat with some fish for company. I am a big fan of rugby and Twickenham is only 20 mins on the train so I get to see lots of games. Like motor sports too, Formula 1 especially. I like going to the cinema.
I studied mechanical engineering in Sligo IT. I have a Bachelors of Engineering from Sligo IT in Mechanical Engineering.
Oh and I am a girl!!!
I work at Heathrow Airport and am responsible for all underground pipelines and tank farms
My job is based at Heathrow airport. My job is to make sure that airplane fuel gets from our tanks to the airplanes. Between our tanks and the airplane there is lots and lots of small sections of underground pipes that need to work well and make sure that the fuel gets to where it is needed.
I am a manager of a team of people that makes sure everything works and fixes problems if we can. We also make new sections of underground pipeline when the airport makes new plane parking spots or changes the shape of the airport.
My Typical Day
No such thing as a typical day – every day is very different.
I start work at 7.30am most days. I finish work at 4.30pm most days.
Generally on Monday’s myself and my team have lots of planning conversations…….what is happening this week. has something broken over the weekend that we need to fix. What is coming up for the rest of the month.
I spend half of my time working on my computer and the other half of my time out on the airport. Every day is very different because anything can happen. Anything can break and need to be fixed.
Sometimes when we need to make more underground pipeline we need to work at night. At night the planes do not move around as much so its much safer for us to work.

Donate to School
