Anthea is a chartered electrical engineer but in her role as Engineering Manager of Nottingham Tram she is in charge of all kinds of engineering activity including the maintenance of track, sub-stations, overhead line and trams. ‘For me this is the perfect job,’ Anthea says, ‘because it encompasses a little bit of many types of engineering. In total I have 17 years experience in railway maintenance, although I can’t believe it’s that long.’
She spent the first 5 years of her career in railway signalling maintenance before generalizing into the management of all infrastructure (track, signalling, overhead line) and from there she joined Nottingham tram. ‘I have had very positive experiences in this industry, not always easy but always challenging and often rewarding.’
Anthea can advise on many different aspects of engineering as well as management.
