“I started as a radio technician in 1983. After I qualified, I worked on the fit-out of a new Central Receiving Station and installed some of the first fibre optic cabling in use at the time. I am proud to remain an engineer and have worked all over the world with FCDO Services.” Head of Asia Pacific Region and former Technical Apprentice
