It is always an early start, normally about 6:00am. It is the ideal time to start preparing work for the day. My main job is stripping… No, I’m not a pin up! I mean striping the protective covering off the aluminium panels before sending them through to be powder coated! My role includes pre-treating the panels so that they are cleaned and prepared to take powder coating, which requires craning the materials through various tanks. When needed, I also help out with packaging.
<h3What’s your favourite thing about working for Bailey?
It’s so enjoyable working with the guys in the team, they are so supportive and great fun to work with…most of the time!
Prioritising work is sometimes difficult, but processing is a team effort, so good communication with project managers and customers really does help.
You’ve got to be good at keeping focused and a good team player.
Omelette Head – My hair looks like it has been whisked up sometimes. Jakey Boy is most common or keeping it simple, Jay.
Honestly, I will have any pizza, but my favourite is a large ‘Meat Delicious’ – not mentioning the brand name!
1. A HD widescreen TV, so I can watch my favourite programme, American Dad – I love Roger!
2. A football so I can practice keepy uppies and play matches…okay, one sided matches, but at least I will be on the winning side. I am not great at football but I wish I was!
3. Fishing rod, the only way to relax.
One of my favourite past times is fishing, visiting the local rivers and ponds. I often go to Summer Pond in Barns Green, West Sussex. Beautiful location and they have a great bar, so even if I don’t catch a fish, I can catch a beer – and if I do catch a big one, well, why not celebrate. You could say win/win!
Australia. The place looks amazing and I would want to go to all the fishing spots – beautiful locations and such a variety of fish, heaven!
For me it is France or Spain, as both countries are well known for carp fishing. My record is 20lbs, but I know I would smash that if I went to these places.
