A typical day at work inspecting many different types of buildings is rewarding because I am able to help or direct builders to successful completion of any building project. I learn new things every day because I implement the BC building code and Fire code every day. The management has changed and so has the workplace culture. The hardest part of my job is finding time to read all the reports. The most enjoyable part of my job is taking on new and more complicated projects where I am chellanged to think.
The typical day required a lot of data entry infront of a computer but also a lot of driving around the city.
I found it to be a very enjoyable job and a great way to make a name for myself within the City of Richmond.
I was only on a summer contract with them but I am excited to get the chance again this summer to do it again.
The City of Richmond is a very desirable place to work as everyone from the CAO down to the front line staff have a positive attitude and enjoy a healthy work/life balance. There are many social and corporate events throughout the year and it is a certainly well sort after work place.
lunch and learns, positive work environment and friendly co-workers
