David Klink, Operator
I am David Klink and I have been working as an Operator at Indaver for almost 10 years. Together with three colleagues, I am responsible for some of the facilities at the site in Doel. It is a varied job in which I carry out a range of activities. Every shift is different, from working with the crane to monitoring everything from the control room. We work in a shift system, which provides a lot of flexibility and variation. I enjoy that.
We humans produce a great deal of waste. Tossing all of it on a pile is not the solution. This is why we generate energy from waste. Thanks to the devotion of our teams and the right processes, Indaver provides many families with electricity. Making our contribution to a better environment feels great.
Indaver doesn’t only handle waste in a sustainable fashion, the company also has a sustainable approach when it comes to employees. Everyone’s contribution counts. We are listened to if we suggest ideas or innovations. And safety comes first. Every year we receive training to protect our own safety. Indaver ensures that we are taken into account, both in the short and long term.
There are different career opportunities and a lot of guidance is provided. We can plot our own career path according to our personal situation, health and interests. I got the chance to expand my range of responsibilities after just twelve months. I am team leader during some shifts. And I am a confidential adviser as well. I am happy to have a chat with my colleagues, to listen to them and advise them. Indaver gave me the chance to acquire new skills in this area. It was one of the best training courses I have taken at Indaver.
The shift system has many different benefits. Not only does it provide the necessary degree of variety, but it also enables you to be well organized in terms of your home life. That’s essential in my case, as I have two children. Of course, I take my colleagues into account with respect, and they do likewise. We are a tight-knit team with the right mentality and we trust one another. I hope that any future colleague of ours is also a team player. Someone who is eager to learn and flexible. Someone who looks for solutions, together with us. With good technical skills and a great passion we build our future, and that of Indaver, together.
David Klink has evolved into the role of Teamleader at Indaver.
“I enjoy a good conversation and am glad to have evolved to a counseling role. Together we build for a better future.”
