Here at The Green Energy Advice Bureau our staff are the heartbeat of our organisation, Sales Team Manager Andrew Parkes is a crucial member.
We sat down with him to find out why he thinks people should join the GEAB family!
How long have you worked at GEAB?
Time flies, doesn’t it? I have been with GEAB for 2 years & 4 months.
What’s your favourite part of the job?
There is nothing more rewarding from a management perspective then helping staff personally develop and maximise their potential.
What would you say to people thinking about joining?
I’ve worked for numerous North East energy consultancies, but The Green Energy Advice Bureau was the only one that invested important time in helping me develop my skills. This was an important building block in my personal development and allowed my career to progress at a rapid rate.
How excited are you about the new incentive scheme?
Extremely! I mean the chance to win a car or holiday for simply doing your job is too good to miss out on.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Weekends are for family, I love spending as much time as I can with them. Not to mention I watch a ridiculous amount of football!
What would be your ideal holiday destination?
It has to be Las Vegas! I have been five times, but I wouldn’t turn down a sixth visit. Failing that I would say Thailand. I spent 6 months travelling there when I was younger and have always wanted to go back.
What three words would you use to describe your personality?
I would say, direct, sincere and honest.
What’s your favourite food and drink?
Nothing beats a takeaway, Chinese or Indian are the normal choices! Oh and I am quite partial to a glass of Brandy.
