What do you do on a day-to-day basis within your job?
What do you like about working at Road Traffic Solutions?
The biggest honour is working day to day with a great bunch of colleagues. My biggest reward is to see the workplace running efficiently and employees performing their daily tasks.
What are the values that drive you?
What drives me is the happy faces of users when their IT issues are resolved.
How has your time at RTS been impacted by Coronavirus and the lockdown?
Initially it was very hectic connecting every homeworker to the office via VPN, but within my position it is near enough identical to working in the office and I find it invariable.
What is your favourite quote?
“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” – Thomas Jefferson.
What is your favourite song, film or book and why?
Favourite movie is “The Italian Job.” Just a good old quintessential British Romp.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not at work?
Out of work I am a keen cyclist, plus during the Covid-19 lockdown I have returned to playing the guitar.
Give a fact about yourself nobody else knows:
My wife, Ann, is a front-line specialist Nurse at Scunthorpe ICU. Scott, my son, is a Ph.D. Doctor of Physics and is the Technical Development Manager at Tesco. Also my daughter, Victoria, after gaining a first degree in Graphic Design at Leeds University, now works for Harrods in London as their Graphics Editor.
