My knowledge

Giving the customer exactly what they want and when they want it, is imperative.

Ever since I learnt the subject at school I always found it interesting and it was my best subject.

A judge.

From the moment you walk in the door you are faced with a variety of challenges, be it quoting a job that you have never seen before or ensuring deliveries go out the door on time. Not one day is the same and something always crops up to test your knowledge.

The variety of work I get to do and see each day. The wide range of customers who you get to speak to on the phone and deal with face to face. Helping to solve someone else’s problems.

Everything happens for a reason

Be prepared to work hard, learn from others around you,as you can never stop learning in this industry, there is always a job that comes along where you will need to ask others for advice, even if you think you know it all.

Job satisfaction,  to think I have helped someone out to the best of my ability and to look back on a project knowing I had an input in getting it from the initial drawing stage to the finished product.
