Every month we take a look at one of the Newtown team, following them on a typical day in our always-busy and never-dull business.
This month, Matthew gives us a peek into what’s been going on in our busy workshop.
6 years, 7 months
It’s my job to control the work that comes into the workshop, making sure that customers get their vehicles back when they’re needed. I also carry out any electrical and diagnostic jobs that require an in-depth analysis.
My friend told me about a potential vacancy and I got in touch with the manager that same day to arrange a chat. A few days later, I was offered the position. And the rest, as they say, is history.
No two days are ever the same! There are always different jobs coming into the workshop to ensure that we’re always kept on our toes.
Since starting at Newtown, I’ve gained valuable knowledge into how to carry out repairs effectively and efficiently whilst using the latest diagnostic equipment. One thing I really love about working here is the opportunity to work on such prestigious brands.
In work, my proudest moment was achieving the Gold Level Standard with Vauxhall. When it comes to my life achievements, it has to be my two sons.
Perhaps not a motivation as such, but my youngest son who thinks 5:30am is an acceptable time to start each and every day!
Don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try.
I’m a huge WWE fan and have been for over 20 years; I’ve even managed to convert my wife into a fan!
Well, I’d like nothing more than to go home and play Fifa on the Xbox, but my two sons have other ideas so I often end up playing Lego and Minecraft.
I’ve always wanted to be in the motor trade and follow in my father’s footsteps.
I’d love to go and watch Wrestlemania Live.
