Rowan McIntryre
Project Leader

Take us through a typical day at Bailey for you…

The core of my work involves meeting with customers who want to discuss flat roofing applications, either to prepare a specification and agree roof build ups or visiting sites to survey flat roofs that require replacement.
We work with merchants who sell our products, so visits to them are really important – to thank them for business and to offer design support if their customers require.
I do spend time in the office, these are normally full on days with a mix of meetings, preparation of quotes and specifications, calling customers concerning projects and arranging appointments for the weeks ahead. No day is typical day but I can live with that. I would not want it any other way.

What’s your favourite thing about working for Bailey?

There’s a lot to appreciate at Bailey, from the great management team right through to colleagues wanting to do their best for our customers. My favourite thing has got to be the flexibility of my role and the banter in the team…sorry that’s two things!

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

Meeting as many customers as possible, every day. All my customers deserve attention but it is important to prioritise, creating regular visits and calls, managing my diary, so I am not travelling from the east to the west of England on the same day.

What advice would you give to someone who would like to work as a Project Leader?

You must always keep focused on the main goal and be continually working on and improving your customer relations and product knowledge. You must be prepared for rejections and projects that get delayed. Patience and perseverance are good characteristics to have, as projects might take years before an order is placed. If you are hardworking and remain positive, results will come.

What three words would you use to describe the company?

Dedicated
Accurate
Friendly

Do you have any nickname? What is it?

Rocky – Not because I look like Sylvester Stallone, but because I had curly hair and was called Locky, then someone misheard it and the rest is history

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Steak and chips with a good salmon/whitebait starter.

If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?

Ice
Coke
Jack Daniels<br? <h3=””>What do you like to do in your spare time? </br?>

Spend time with the family and anything to do with water sports.

What is on your bucket list?

For a start I would travel the world and do a farming season in New Zealand

If you were given a choice, where in the world would you like to go? 

Caribbean, LA and Austria.
