A warm welcome to Paul Whellans, who joins our sales team as an estimator. He is a great addition to the team and is settling in well with the sales team and wider office. See what he had to say about his role and joining Johnsons below:
1)How have you found your first few weeks at Johnsons and what have you enjoyed most?
Enjoyed the outdoor work after 20+ years in an office, In all honesty, had a bit of wobble when I joined the estimating team so soon as it's so in-depth however I've given myself some credit and now I'm really enjoying the work.
2)Tell us something you've learnt that you didn't know before:
Probably navigating SAP, I used it many years ago in utilities and it wasn't user friendly for that industry but for stock control and pricing its been spot on.
3)What do you think the biggest challenge will be?
Getting to grips with the millions of varieties we offer.
4)What was your previous job role?
Customer Mortgage Expert for Barclays.
5)You recently moved from the North East, what will you miss the most?
Running with the pooch along the beach.
6)What do you like most about Yorkshire (Gods County)?
So far the quiet, small village life isn't too bad.
7)Favourite season and why:
Has to be summer, love the heat. Actually don't mind the winter (lived in Nova Scotia, Canada) for 6 years and experienced -31 most winters although not a fan of rain.
8)What do you enjoy getting up to outside of work?
Walk's with the dog, coffee in front of the log burner, travel and anything fitness related, attended a few bodybuilding expo's in Vegas and Ohio.
General Amenity Sales Manager Vicky Newell said: "Paul has been a great asset to our team, he has settled into estimating really well, it feels like he has been here for years even though he has only been with us a few weeks."
