Scott Sloman

Scott Sloman
Accounts Manager / Data Protection Officer

Scott is a valuable and versatile member of our team. Whilst his main job is accounts he has proved his capabilities in other areas including IT, First Aider and latterly Data Protection Officer.

He joined us in 2010 following an eight year career in the plumbing and heating industry at which point he felt he needed new challenges. Accounts were the new challenge at which he has excelled.

Scott is an avid Manchester United supporter whilst the MD supports Chelsea so daily football banter ensues. Whilst Scott thinks his biggest company achievement to date involves consuming a rather large amount of Maltesers in one go, we think its his dogged determination to turn up for work despite broken limbs and many other things in order to do his job.

Julie Billett

Health & Safety Officer

Julie joined the company in 2002. During her employment she has worked in various roles.
Somehow, she got talked into taking on the Health and Safety and some of the HR . Unfortunately no one seems keen to relieve her of this job! We wonder why....

Julie takes care of ensuring risk assessments, COSHH assessments and Safe Working Practices are up to date, as well as accreditations and policies. She regularly sneaks around the building spying on staff to ensure they are working safely, this makes her very popular!

In her spare time which is rare with two children, Julie enjoys spending time with her ever expanding family of fur babies
