Tell us about your role at Bluestones One
I have been with Bluestones One for three years. I first started on the shop floor (in the field) where I would travel the country meeting new people and completing a variety of projects. I then moved into the resource team where my role was to put teams together for various clients, this involved making sure the skill set was right. I was also responsible for making sure the accommodation is right and making sure that we, as a business, got the basics right and the teams had the right tools to deliver the best service.

I am now currently the Operations Manger which means I now have my own team within the office and manage colleagues in the field. This role also includes interaction with clients to ensure they have the faith in the business to consistently deliver their requirements.

I have been in retail for over 20 years now and I have enjoyed every minute of it, the different places and challenges that the job role brings. There is no better job satisfaction than knowing our colleagues in the field deliver a high standard of service to our clients and seeing what we have all achieved.

The start of my day varies daily and could be anything from a call regarding feedback from site or another job request coming in.

What do you enjoy?
Every bit of it. The interaction with the colleagues on the shop floor, the office environment and also with the clients. I really enjoy knowing you have to be able to adapt to different situations and react quickly to resolve any issues that come along.
