Welcome back to another week of our Schools Plus Interview series – Who do you think we are?
In this weekly series, members of the Schools Plus team will be asked a series of questions about them and their job here at Schools Plus. We thought this would be a great way to find out more about our staff. There is a huge array of jobs and people within the company and every interview will be vastly different. You will get an insight into their day to day life, their time before working here and a bit more about the team.

Flexibility and freedom to choose work days and hours
Can you describe a typical working day for you?
It all depends on a day. Sometimes I would be working from home, responding to emails, preparing quotes for events, organising staffing, calling customers etc. On other days, I would be visiting my sites to talk with the team members, customers and school staff.

Besides spending time with my lovely family, I like flying gliders and riding motorcycles (mostly offroad)
You are a crayon in the box what colour would you be and why?

Mick Jagger – God Gave Me Everything – it’s a superb song with great lyrics – I wish all of us could honestly sing those lyrics at Mick Jagger’s age (now 75!), looking back at our lives
