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 here at Schools Plus so every interview will be totally different. You will get an insight into their day to day life, their time before working here and a bit more about the team.

I enjoy building a strong relationship with our partner schools and helping out where ever I can. It doesn’t matter if it’s cleaning the sports hall floor to doing some logistic work for the leadership teams, every little helps.
Can you describe a typical working day for you?
Typically, it is visiting each of my sites and spending time in each of the schools catching up with various people and planning what we are going to do in the best interest of the school. Also catching up with my Team Leaders and Venue Supervisors who do such a terrific job not only for us and but for the schools we serve.

I see us continuing to help different schools and their communities get the most out of the facilities and really making a difference

Hmmm spare time?? I enjoy a variety of things from MMA, Pro Wrestling & Keeping Fit to History, Traveling and Music.

Finally, what is your favourite song and why?
This is way too hard to choose as it all depends on your mood. The last track to play on my phone was Overload by Zappacosta
