We are an eclectic bunch at Dulas, with people drawn from a wide range of backgrounds to cover a wide range of disciplines.
I am an Installer with our Microgeneration team and I particularly work on the connections and commissioning for PV systems. I also do some Biomass control wiring and working with the engineers to develop robust electrical installation processes and specifications for cables and equipment.
I like that the work is varied and interesting and that I get to be involved with some really unusual and inspiring projects and my colleagues throughout the company who are generally a bunch of very clever, fun, interesting people.
I did my apprenticeship with a local electrical company and then ran my own electrical contractor business for 3 years.
I love reading and listening to music and I am currently restoring a 1982 Mini Van called Gordon.
I design the instrumentation systems for our onshore and offshore met masts, make sure the instruments and structure meet the relevant regulations and also deploy and maintain remote sensing systems. I also look after the incoming data, checking it for problems and doing some analysis. This all involves a mix of electronics work, computer programming and number crunching.
I enjoy working for a co-op, the friendly atmosphere here, and the selection of people who are very knowledgeable in all sorts of fields. Getting out onto site is also great, especially on the few occasions it isn’t sleeting.
I worked for a web development company, doing GIS programming. Before that, I managed to spend eight years studying physics.
I am the Solar International Export Co-ordinator which involves procurement of solar vaccine refrigerator system parts such as solar modules and batteries and then getting these packaged up for export via sea and air freight. I am also involved in the quality and health and safety of Dulas and act as a representative of each for the International team.
Dulas is a friendly and vibrant place to work, there is often something different to do each day and the variety of tasks available is not what you would get in other companies. The office being based in Machynlleth surrounded by hills, mountains and rivers is very special and unique.
Before starting at Dulas in July 2006, I had just graduated from Aberystwyth University where I studied film and television. During that time I took a year in employment which consisted of 4 work placements within marketing, communications, TV and radio, one highlight of which was going out to film a celebrity episode of Come Dine With Me in 2005.
I am the Divisional Officer for St John Ambulance in Aberystwyth which takes up a lot of my free time. This involves a large amount of first aid training for members aged between 10 and 60+ along with lots of paperwork and admin. I also enjoy playing tennis and badminton and making cards and jewellery.
