What’s your favourite thing about working for Bailey?

Our culture of always driving to do better across the whole business.

 What’s the most challenging aspect of your job and how do you overcome it?

The most challenging aspect is gathering sufficient information from customers to make a meaningful start on the design stage of a project. To get past this I support customers with regular, friendly reminders and make sure they understand the effect on the project programme if the information is not forthcoming.
