My main objectives this year have been to finalise field structure, recruit and retain in the right areas. I manage a team of engineers and routinely review jobs on site visits. I monitor part usage and update/review van stocks, and I have setup an apprenticeship programme for engineers.
Any professional qualifications?
NVQ level 3 in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.
Why do you like your job? And Wolf?
I enjoy being part of a company with such a hardworking, ambitious, and supportive work force. I feel valued and encouraged to continually develop professionally.
I was employed at Millers UK LTD for 16 years. Did my apprenticeship from leaving school and was there until being made redundant during the pandemic.
I joined Wolf as a Field service engineer in Jan 2021.
Became Regional Ops Manager North at Wolf in Jan 2023. This has been the greatest achievement of my career so far.
What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
My current role. I love it.
How would you describe your career in three words?
Evolving, challenging, and fulfilling.
What is your favourite / funniest memory from your career so far?
My funniest memory is when I went for an interview at a company during the final stages of high school and thought that the company made parts for tanks (as in the army), but in actual fact they made parts for tankers as in containers for oil etc.
I sat through the full interview none of the wiser. No wonder I was never asked back for a second interview.
Tell us more about yourself: What do you like to do in your free time?
I am married with one four-year boy and another baby boy on the way. I have a dog called Alfie. I like to socialise with friends and family, watch movies, and go to nice restaurants.
What’s your passion? I love participating in and watching all kinds of sports, especially football. I often get told off from my wife because she thinks football comes before her.
Give a lesser known fact about yourself?
I used to play football part time for Clitheroe FC, FC United of Manchester, and Stalybridge Celtic and other non-league football teams for over 10 years. I stopped playing so I could spend more time with my family, as working full time and playing football part time became difficult.
