Our People

Meet Courtney

Courtney is our HR Coordinator and is generally the first person prospective employees interact with at WEL. Along with providing HR support to the business, she looks after both the recruitment and induction process. What makes her role worthwhile? “The awesome, friendly people we have at WEL. I like being one of the first people that new employees get to know and giving them a warm welcome.”

Meet Alan

This is Alan, our Network Design Manager. He’s been with WEL since he was 18 when he began his apprenticeship in 1973 and has worked in nearly every department at WEL since. His current role is in our Asset Management team which sees him involved in high-level design and estimate jobs, as well as managing our drawing and draughting services. He’s also WEL’s Civil Defence representative.
 

Meet Chris

Fancy a career where you scale trees and fly drones? Chris does just that as an Arborist/Drone Pilot. He joined WEL as a Trainee Arborist and has since progressed to Foreman. His duties vary from organising equipment and liaising with landowners to traffic and public safety management. More recently he’s been working with drones to help check vegetation clearance from power lines. Chris has completed flight time hours, a three-day course and practical flight tests.

 

Meet Ben

Chances are if you call our 0800 number you'll chat with Ben, one of four Customer Services representatives. Aside from handling phone and email enquiries, Ben is a pro scheduler - booking line mechanics in for new connections to co-ordinating faultmen for outages. He's also on our Health and Safety Committee, something he’s pretty passionate about. “I firmly believe we should all go home in one piece – it’s about looking out for your mates working alongside you.”
