After leaving school my mam and dad wanted me to find a job straight away. With me being the daring type and enjoying heights, I decided I’d head down to the local Fire Brigade Station and sign up!
I was told there and then like everyone else these days that “I wasn’t experienced enough” and need to show “experience in a team!”
Bet this sounds familiar to loads of people!
Anyway the Fireman was really helpful and asked me what I was good at in school. When I told him I made an amazing clock out of wood in technology at school he told me to try joiner and to come back in 8-10 years! Off I went to become a joiner and gain enough experience so one day I could save lives as a fire fighter. That was my childhood dream, but like many childhood dreams they never end up coming true.
Don’t feel sorry for me though, it turned out that I was bloody good at joinery! I ended up building luxury homes for a company names Yulls in Ingleby Barwick, serving my time as a joiner and passing my NVQ level 1, 2 & 3 in carpentry and joinery! This made my mam and dad really happy because they decided I could move out of the house even though I didn’t ask to!
After working with Yulls I started working for another company called JCS in Hartlepool, you name it they built it!
I learnt how to build roof truss’s and extensions, which then lead me to tiling roofs aswell! But still something didn’t feel right, I felt like something was missing. Maybe it was my inner child still wanting to be a fireman or maybe it was looking at all the older men working along side me and thinking “I don’t want to be that old working for someone else!”.
So I made the decision to start my brand new company MyRoofer plus! I got a shiny new van and started taking on jobs instantly.
