What’s your job title? And how long have you worked for James Tobias?
I’m a Project Engineer and joined in December 2017.
What does that actually mean? What does your role entail?
I take site survey information along with a quote of what the client wants and produce AutoCAD drawings. I then liaise with the client and make any changes that are necessary, along with suggesting ways in which the product could possibly work better in the space they have available. Once approved I create a cutting list for the factory and then proceed to project manage the installation until completion.
What does a normal day look like for you?
Drinking coffee, managing any projects I currently have, which includes everything from the initial drawing and sending out of a project, changing and amending any technical details right through to job completion. Oh, and more coffee!
How does your role work with the wider James Tobias team?
As a company we all work together, but generally mine and the other Project Engineers role is to know the in’s and out’s of our current projects so we can help the whole process run smoothly through each stage.
Who do you do most of your work for?
My work is based around the client, working with them to ensure the final product they get, is one that they are happy with.
How do you make sure that you live up to the James Tobias values in your own work?
Each one of us are understanding of the clients needs and take on board their feedback, meaning they get the product they want. Along with keeping things to schedule and staying professional, resulting in a level of service that makes our company the best in the business.
If you had the chance to tell your clients one thing about James Tobias what would it be and why?
Everyone takes pride in the work they do. From sales to us in the office and the factory, we all strive to keep producing the best product and service available.
If you were to have one James Tobias product in your own home, what would it be and why?
Either our standard SW1 StorageWall or Quebix. The simplicity of our standard storage wall can look incredibly clean and modern, and with the right finish for the surrounding environment, just looks great! Then our Quebix supplies easy and visually stunning storage that can adapt to any space.
Finally, when you’re not creating the UK’s leading storage solutions, what keeps you busy?
I love to travel and I’m always planning my next adventure! Alongside a passion for powerlifting and also photography and videography, it’s not very often I’m sat still!
