Euan's First Six Months At The Yard

Euan started working for Lochbroom Woodfuels January 30th. He has achieved a lot in the last six months including how to drive a forklift and gained his certificate, how to operate a chainsaw which he also gained a certificate for and how to work safely and as part of a team.

The highlights of the job so far for Euan have been getting his qualifications which he might not of got the chance to otherwise along with getting the chance to go/see places he has not been before. The part Euan enjoys most is going out on deliveries as he loves driving (especially the pick up) and going to places he doesn't go often. Making up small nets of wood has to be his least favourite bit as it gets very repetitive very quickly!

Euans goals are to stay working at the yard for a few years to gain all the experience he can and think about his future career. The team have also learnt something from Euan......

Everything will be fine in the end!
