Dave Love, Assembly Team Leader
How long have you worked at Moores?

29 years

Can you provide an overview of your career history with Moores and what you do now?

I started at Moores as a ‘service man’, which included fetching and ordering replacement panels, for the people building units. I then spent some time as a QA inspector, before returning to the assembly department, when we went to team working, where I became a team leader.  As a team leader, I have to organise a team of 14 people, to make sure that units and loads are completed on time, and with as little rejects as possible. I have to organise my work load, so that units are built in order, organise and crate a training plan for the team. I also have to look over my teams wages and authorise them once these are correct. I am also responsible for checking holidays and making sure that we don’t have too many people off at once.

How would you describe the working culture at Moores?

I think everyone tries their best to get the job in hand done, correctly and as easily as possible. There seems to me a good working atmosphere within which ever team I work in.

Why is Moores a great place to work for you?

Moores has job security, even through these difficult times, I have never thought as my job being under threat. Over the last few years, we have grown as a company, and the future looks even brighter. The hours suit me and we don’t have to do compulsory weekend work, unlike some other companies.

Faye Parnaby, Design & Estimating Manager (Private Developments)
How long have you worked at Moores?

13 years

Can you provide an overview of your role and your career history with Moores?

I joined Moores in 2007 as an admin assistant to the customer service department. After a few months I approached my line manager about the next steps in the department and becoming an order processor. After 6 months I was successful in applying for the position of order processor. I worked really closely with the various team leaders and eventually took over the training of new order processors coming into the business. I loved working closely with new starters and coaching and mentoring them whilst also trying to work towards a paperless office. When the Private development order processing team leader left I was approached to take the next step in my career and take over this role. Following a restructure I took on some project work working really closely with the IT director on how we could improve things further including trying to reduce the training time an order processor needed to undergo to achieve skill level 2. We worked on various other projects around the business before I decided to apply for the Design and Estimating manager role where I am today.

What do you enjoy about working with Moores?

For me it’s the people that make Moores a great place to work. It is busy and we do have a lot to achieve as a turn around business, but by all pulling together and sticking with our values we can achieve anything we set our minds too.
