A typical day at work includes liaison with either clients or contractors depending on the issues. Being with Royal HaskoningDHV sharpened my interest in contract administration and the legal issues of the engineering industry. I have also developed an interest in corporate governance issues. Management varies, there are good managers and some dogmatic managers as well. The hardest part of the job has been dealing with over-demanding clients. However that is the nature of the beast and one just has to keep the eye on the ball. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I have to analyse contractual claims as well as when I have made a client aware of the legislative requirements of an issue and him/her realising the risk that he could have been exposed to had that discussion not taken place.
