Introduction

I was a Lead Analysis Engineer at QuEST Global Engineering. I have ten years of experience in aeronautical engineering, and have spent the past three years in a team-leading role. I have attained a Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace), and also have an ongoing commitment to my own professional development and training. I have acquired a multitude of skills in my career as an analyst engineer and have brought extensive technical knowledge and experience to all projects I had participated in during my tenure at QuEST Global Engineering. In my role as a lead analysis engineer, I have had extensive experience in managing team members to complete projects efficiently, on time, exceed industry quality standards and within budget. I am skilled at being able to determine the most suitable methods/procedures for each task, and am able to delegate work to team members appropriately. I take pride in both my problem solving/troubleshooting skills and my ability to draw out ideas from my team members. I am also frequently asked to offer technical guidance to both my team members and other colleagues. I am accustomed to discussing project progress with both clients and senior management and conduct negotiations with both the client and senior management to meet client expectations whilst adhering to strict industry standards. With my attention to detail I have the gained delegated technical authority of the Quality Management System to review and validate data prior to its release to clients. In my career as an analysis engineer, I have acquired technical, analytical and interpersonal skills that allow me to complete my tasks efficiently with high standards. I have developed technical expertise in the use of Microsoft Excel. I am capable of managing, collating, and manipulating vast amounts of data using intelligent analysis techniques and automation to complete deliverables. I am highly versatile in that I am able to applying my technical knowledge across multiple platforms. As such I have become a software expert for proprietary tools of various clients, and I am often allocated to multiple projects simultaneously. I also have extensive experience in liaising between multiple technical disciplines and understand the importance of multidisciplinary teamwork. My high level of organisation is a natural aptitude that I have been able to build on throughout my broad industry experience. I pride myself on my ability to minimise risk in all projects I participate and my conflict resolution skills have been invaluable to both my teams and clients. I am looking for a role that will continue to expand my capabilities and challenge me in a positive way.
