Read on to find out all you need to know...
How did you get involved in the industry?
I had always helped out my dad in the summer holidays and for extra money whilst I was at University. Then I got a call one afternoon in 2005 off one of our directors Andy, saying there was a sudden vacancy and would I mind helping out for a while. 14 years later, here we are.
What does your role entail?
My role initially was as our Vehicle tint installer. My role expanded to include Window Film and Graphics installation and Graphics manufacture. At point over the previous 14 years I have been a part of every aspect of the business more or less.
I am now Installations Manager. I oversee scheduling for the Window Film department, stock control and manage the company's Quality Control meetings. I am also a member of our increasingly busy Social Media Team. In addition to my installation duties of course.
What do you enjoy about working at Lustalux?
Every day is different. We get to see people in their homes and finally allow them to sit in their conservatory in the summer. Then we get to visit a large, multinational company, keep their office staff cool and glare free whilst giving them a full rebrand. All in the same day.
I am part of a great team, that over the years we have honed into workforce of talented, hardworking individuals that make each day at Lustalux a pleasure. I also love the creative aspect of our work. Completing a graphics installation and seeing how it transforms a workspace is very rewarding.
Interesting facts about you
When I’m not hard at work for Lustalux, I am a freelance illustrator. I design Posters sold on many well-known outlets such as Not On The High Street and Etsy. I also design Wedding, Christening and event stationery. I use my spare time to be creative.
Anything you'd like to add?
Lifelong, hereditary Chelsea fan.
