60 Second Interview

As part of our regular series of interviewing Western Power Distribution staff, we caught up with Cwmbran based Technician Paul Keenan.


What’s your career background?

I began my career working as a labourer in 1978. I then trained as a tree cutter and in 1981 trained as a linesman, and then later took on the role of technician. I have always worked in the East Wales area, and I am currently based at our Ty Coch depot.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The variation; no two days are ever the same. I also get a sense of satisfaction when a job is completed on time and on target. I like to think I have achieved a good end result. It’s also good to be working with a great team of colleagues.

What’s the biggest challenge you face?

Meeting tight deadlines and targets can be a challenge, as is liaising with the various highways departments.

What does your role entail?

My role is quite varied. I mostly deal with high voltage faults, the installation of new plant and equipment and new business.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to go sea fishing and spending time relaxing in my caravan with my family. I have a fast fisher boat moored outside Exeter which is really relaxing.
