Head of happiness
3. How long have you worked at SB Homes?
4.5 years (that’s how old I am)
Well, my dad’s a painter & decorator, so sometimes I sit in his van and wait around until he has a lunch break so we can go for a walk. Other days I go to the office and keep everyone company — I sit under desks and wait for them to give me a treat.
Mainly, I just try to greet everyone and put a smile on their faces, especially on a bad day :)
The best part is lunchtime, for me. That’s when all the nice smells come out, but I avoid Sarah (SB Homes’ project manager), because she always has salad. Steve Mitchell usually has the best lunches because he sometimes gets a fresh pork pie from the butchers.
I just think they’re the best — I live in one, so I should know! And I see how much hard work and dedication goes into them, my mum and dad are always grafting!
Every day is an achievement in my eyes :)
I live in Slaithwaite so you’d either find me at home or walking around the village with my mum and dad. I love running too!
My dream home is anywhere that my mum and dad are :)
I’ll be an old man in 10 years so hopefully I’ll have retired by then!
