Work Placement & Student Liaison Manager
A fully qualified PGA Golf Professional for more than 20 years, Simon came to us from a similar position in a different industry – his experience preceded him and the mutual interests as well as the ‘same wavelength’ attitude ensured he was the right fit for Brookhouse. He oversees all work experience opportunities as the Work Placement Manager, matching trainees with great industry opportunities local to them.
Simon enjoys working at Brookhouse because of the relaxed but very professional atmosphere. Dealing with students on a daily basis, he appreciates the impact his work has on their careers and says candidates are always a joy to work with.
You’d think it’s just for the free tea and coffee, but Simon says Brookhouse stands out as a workplace because of just being able to go to work and genuinely enjoy it. Job satisfaction and a good, adaptable work environment matter:
“I love working at Brookhouse, as firstly, I really enjoy my role within the company which gives me great job satisfaction seeing candidates placed with companies and following their journey, making a difference in their life to becoming qualified gas engineers. Brookhouse has a great feel about it as a company. A great working atmosphere, where everyone works together as a team to accomplish everyone’s goals. James (MD) is always looking to improve, always looking to take it forwards as a company and look at what we can do better, and how we can improve on things, whether it be customer service, training or placements.”
In his spare time, Simon likes to try and keep fit and has recently completed the Total Warrior at Braham Park alongside our MD, James – they both did very well in the challenging 12k mud obstacle race!
The reason we have the reputation of being the best gas training centre in the UK, we give our students what they need to work competently with gas, not what is easiest and quickest for us to deliver.
