You may remember at the beginning of the year we had monthly profiles of staff members who were going above and beyond so we felt they deserved a shout out. Well from this month they are back!
This months highlighted member of the team is … Shane Britton.
Shane is 21 years old and has become an integral part of the team. Initially coming to us via a work placement he is now with us full time. Shane heads up the IT sector making sure data erasure is complete following the correct protocols and fixing/testing anything electronic. Recently thanks to our new line of business with our banner/marketing printer Shane has been hands on making sure everything prints in the best quality and the prints run smoothly. Being a man of many talents Shane also assists in the strip out work in London. Shane’s versatility and his can do attitude are some of the things which make him such a pleasure to work with.
Today I sat down with Shane and had a chat with him about his experiences within the company and some exciting out of work activities.
TRACOuk: Morning Shane, please can you tell me a little bit about what you do day to day?
