      I really enjoy my job as I am challenged, so I never get bored. I have a lovely team of people to work with and really enjoy seeing plans and ideas come to fruition. I like to solve problems and every problem I get given by the scientists is different so I have plenty of variety to keep me entertained.

      Yep, i like it a lot which helps a lot to have motivation to get out of bed every morning. I’m also fortnate to work with nice people, so socially it’s a fun place, generally engineers are pretty nice.

      The best part is working hard for a couple weeks, and seeing something you designed being built, and having a nice feeling of satisfaction. It’s like getting a good grade at the end of a class you worked hard in.

      Yes! I really the like the challenge of my job – there are always different problems to solve and I have to learn new things which means it doesn’t get boring.

      The best part of my job is having to solve difficult problems. Often nobody will have faced the exact same problem before so I have to put my thinking cap on and work out a solution. Engineers are really good at working together, so I’ll speak to others and they’ll have different ideas from my own. It’s a great feeling when you find a really good solution!

      do like my job! The challenge and the variety are awesome. I think the best bit, though, is when I get to play with liquid nitrogen!
