Sean McGuinness, Maintenance Technician (Leading Hand), Estates Division

Sean has been at the College for two years and has become a familiar sight around the South Kensington Campus – ensuring that this often challenging estate and network of buildings is safely working for researchers, students and support staff.

“My typical day might involve quickly reacting to urgent mechanical and electrical issues − from resetting a breaker to repairing steam equipment.

Everything is done according to the highest safety measures and published procedures. I enjoy the large variety of tasks, which changes from day to day.”
