Can you describe the jobs you do at AMSG?
As a key account manager, I am tasked with an array of different jobs. Looking after the day to day aspects of my current contracts and showing a caring attitude to the customer is a big part of my responsibility. But it doesn’t stop there! Visits to working guards and domestic staff can bring more challenges. Remembering every person is an individual and that we all have our own issues can very much alter the way I carry out my visit.
As you can appreciate we all do our best to deliver a first-class bespoke service, so getting great feedback at meetings for me is important.
What aspect of your new role do you enjoy the most?
I consider myself to be very much a people person. I very much enjoy interacting with other team members and meeting new people. I suppose the most enjoyable aspect of my role is job satisfaction. Knowing that, as a team, we are delivering a first-class service and the staff are working hard to meet the requirements set out by the customer and myself is rewarding.
How do you motivate others?
Showing great enthusiasm in what I do, having a good understanding of my role and a positive can-do attitude impacts on how others are motivated to work hard and achieve goals.
What is the most important thing you have learned in the last ten years?
To have a positive outlook on life, appreciate what you have in life and have self-respect and belief. We can all bend down and pick up nothing.
How do you define success and how do you measure it?
I define success as something you work hard to achieve. The way I measure my success is by taking the initiative to learn new aspects of my job, setting myself a goal and achieving it.
Tell us one interesting fact about you that we might not know.
As a school boy and into early adulthood I was a gymnast and, after a lot of hard work and dedication, I won the British Championships. I was selected for the British Squad but, unfortunately due to attending college to learn to be a chef, I could not commit myself to the training. I’m also a serving member of the Army Reserve and this picture is of me on annual camp at Barry Budden in Scotland in 2015. The tank was taken during the conflict in Iraq and now used as an ambulance.
