We feel very lucky here at Belroc to have so many talented, dedicated and friendly people working with us. Our expert team is our biggest asset and with so many of them working behind the scenes, we think it’s only fair to turn the spotlight on them occasionally!
This time it’s the turn of our newest employee Caitlin Palmer, who recently joined us all the way from the UK and has taken up a project administrator role, helping to deliver Belroc’s trademark service to our customers by keeping them informed and liaising with suppliers for swift and seamless project delivery. We caught up with Caitlin to find out more about what brought her all the way to Ontario…
Hi Caitlin! Tell us a little about your role at Belroc:
My new role is projects administrator. I mainly work alongside Christian managing projects on a day-to-day basis from working with suppliers, communicating with clients and completing purchase orders. Every day is different which makes the role so interesting. I work on shop drawings and submitting to clients for review which I like because it allows me to be more creative.
How long have you been with the company?
Not long – as I write this I am on my fifth working day! Everything is still very new but I’m loving it so far.
What attracted you to the company and this particular position?
I’m from England so I hadn’t heard of Belroc before, but when it was described to me as a small, friendly team I knew it would be my kind of place to work. The role attracted me as I was looking for something more administration based having worked more in sales for the past three years – and of course, it was very exciting to relocate to Canada!
What’s your professional background?
I graduated in June 2018 from Sheffield Hallam University in the UK with a BA Hons degree in International Business. During my degree I worked part time as a sales advisor for a self storage company. Belroc is my first full time position!
What’s your favourite thing about your job or this sector in general?
It’s still very early days but so far I would say the variety. Every day something different happens and I learn something new!
What’s the most challenging thing?
Learning from scratch, having never done project administration before. It can be a bit daunting, but learning things little and often helps me to build my knowledge and confidence.
Do you have any hobbies or outside interests?
Is Netflix a hobby?
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I guess that I am British!
Name one thing you couldn’t live without?
Coffee and tea.
