Years Year Months Month Days Day
What do you enjoy the most about your role?
I love the satisfaction of finishing a job; when you start working on something which is a challenging job, and you can complete the job it gives you a sense of achievement. I have been working on trailers for over 20 years now and before that I worked as a mechanic in a factory for 8 years, so I really enjoy working on jobs which give me a bit of a challenge and that feeling of satisfaction when it’s complete!
What do you like about working for TIP Trailer Services?
I enjoy my job and get on well with everyone in the workshop! I actually used to work at the TIP Southampton site for a vendor before moving over to TIP, so I was already familiar with most people on site!
What’s your biggest work achievement?
I really enjoy the ABS/EBS part of work. I always feel like I have achieved something when I do a challenging piece of work and get my brain going! I like to stay constantly busy and engaged!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am a season ticket holder at Southampton football club! When I’m not busy with football, I enjoy fishing and I have recently bought a jet ski which I hope to get out on in the summer months!
