Welcome to the next member in our series of getting to know the Site Equip team! This time we meet our Yard Foreman, David Aislabie.
Which part of the company do you work for?
I am the Yard Foreman at Site Equip’s North London depot.
Please explain what you do in a few sentences!
On a day-to-day basis, I oversee the yard team and make sure all drivers are loaded and fully stocked for the day. Also, I fix and prepare any second-hand toilets that are for sale.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
My favourite part of the day has to be loading our drivers and knowing that they are ready for whatever comes their way.
What’s your biggest achievement within the company?
When I started, I was a yard operative in Hitchin. I have since been promoted to the foreman, which I’m proud of. It is always nice to know your hard work is noticed and appreciated.
What piece of advice would you give to yourself at the beginning of your career?
Looking back, I would tell myself to work hard and aim to push myself to do that bit extra when needed.
What do you do to unwind?
There’s nothing better than when you’ve finished work and you can relax, sit on the sofa and watch the football, maybe with a bud.
Anything exciting coming up?
My weekends are pretty much taken up with kid’s football. My son plays upfront and will hopefully win a few cups come the end of the season!
Meet the full team here: sometimes it is nice to know who’s behind the scenes, just like David Aislabie.
