Ben joined Telent after feeling frustrated at his previous workplace. He wanted to be out on site but was held back and didn’t feel like he was given the opportunity to reach his full potential.
“At Telent, I’ve been given the chance to go out and prove myself, use my skills and expertise, and do what I love. Having that opportunity means the world – being in an office isn’t for me.”
Most of Ben’s work relates to traffic signals, but can range from identifying and fixing faults, to carrying out routine inspections and responding to out of hours emergency call outs. Ben has had the opportunity assist Telent’s Transport for London colleagues with the preparation for the Queens Funeral, an opportunity that he was “very proud to have been a part of.”
“Since the accident, I’ve been able to do most manual work that’s required of my role”, says Ben. “Understandably, I can’t do everything the way I would’ve before, but I don’t let that get in the way. I drive an automatic van, which Telent arranged specially and I’m very grateful for.”
