This week, we continue our ‘Meet the Team’ series, shining the spotlight on Max Lloyd-Hughes; Fire and Safety expert and integral cog in the Twenty4 wheel!
As we enter our 7th week in lockdown, we thought we would catch up with Max, allowing our blog readers to learn more about him, his role and how he is coping with being stuck indoors.
Tell us a little bit about you and your career so farI started my apprenticeship in 2003 shortly after I left school. Since then, I’ve worked in many different areas of the industry and for a number of national firms before settling with Twenty4.
How long have you been with Twenty4 and what is your role?I’ve been working for Twenty4 since 2016, my role within the company is Senior Engineer which I thoroughly enjoy. I have watched the business grow year on year and have been proud to be part of the team.
What does a typical working day for you look like?It can often start in the office either planning for the week ahead with the admin team, I could then be out surveying sites and meeting customers, responding to emergency call-outs or offering technical support to some of the other engineers.
What do you enjoy most about working for the company?My day to day role can change but I enjoy the varied challenges and tasks that are put in front of me. The team at Twenty4 are also great and I enjoy working alongside everyone, it can really fun.
What would you say has been the biggest challenge in your role?When we decided to apply for SSAIB accreditation in 2018, the work involved with the rest of the Twenty4 team to pass the inspection would have been my biggest challenge. Fortunately, we passed and are now SSAIB accredited!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years' time?In 5 years, I’d imagine myself still at Twenty4 with new challenges as the technology in our industry moves so quickly! What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Outside of work I have a young family so I spend a lot of time with them. I also enjoy socialising with friends.
Lastly, how are you coping with lockdown?lockdown with a 6 & 4-year-old is challenging! Like my children I miss routine but it has been really nice to spend time with my wife and kids - especially with this warm weather! Keeping us all busy and safe during this time had been key to coping with the lockdown.
Next week, we will be profiling other members of the team so be sure to keep an eye on our blog...
