What do you enjoy most about working for CDM?

Whilst I have worked for CDM for 11 years every day is different. Some days can be a struggle to keep up with while others can be so successful you feel quite proud of the effort put in. At the moment every plant operator vacancy filled is a personal victory!!!

There is always support and encouragement from my colleagues and managers. I love the fact I know everyone who works for CDM and we have plenty of nights out during the year to keep in touch outside of work.
