A week later I was offered the job.
Describe a typical day?
A typical day would start with travelling to a quarry & meeting with the quarry manager.
You could spend half the day outside around the quarry carrying out an inspection/audit, the second half of the day could be spent on paper work which might include analysising environmental monitoring results and checking for compliance to planning conditions imposed on the site.
