Charlie Hamilton joined Steertrak in 2006, after having recently left the the Army (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers). He is one of four ex forces personnel who currently work for Steertrak.
Charlie’s skills were well suited to Steertrak, not just because of his good all round mechanical training, but also because the Army taught him to how to think on his feet and work around problems. As a mobile engineer you are in effect a “workshop on wheels” and there is no one looking over your shoulder when things get tough. “You have to keep a cool head and see the job through, no matter how long it takes”.
Although the Steertrak hours can be long and varied, Charlie likes the flexibility that the job provides. In particular because he manages his own diary, he might choose to work the odd weekend or evening so he can fit in a game of golf weekdays. “As long as I am getting the work done and looking after my customers, the company is quite flexible on what hours I work”.
