Meet the Team: Jon Worsnop, Site Manager
In this week’s Meet the Team we chat to Jon Worsnop, Site Manager here at Ultimate.
1. Let’s start from the beginning. In brief, describe the role of your job at Ultimate and what you do?
Being based on site to manage and monitor the project ensuring works are installed to a high-quality high standard of workmanship. Monitor and supervise day to day health and safety on site ensuring the work place is a safe environment. Closely monitor the programme and ensure we deliver a high standard of finish meeting the deadline to make yet another satisfied customer.
2. All things considered, what type of work is most likely to spark the fire in your brain? What is your dream project?
A project that has the wow factor, that was challenging along the way, but the end result is a high-quality product that incorporates modern materials and build methods that look amazing, then handing it over seamlessly to a happy client.
3. What incredible new invention would make your job easier and turbo charge your productivity?
My pet hate is trailing cables and temporary lights, so Sky-hooks that hold up trailing cables and temporary lights without having to fasten to ceilings and newly plastered walls would be amazing!
4. When all the hard work is over, what is the most satisfying aspect of your job at Ultimate?
Looking back at the case study of the project forgetting all the challenges throughout the journey but to see the top-notch end result, definitely something to be proud of.
“Never bury your head in the sand … tackle it head on coming out of the other side stronger and more confident.”
5. If you could send out just one message that sums up your industry, what would you say?
Hard work, fast pace, projects changing and evolving on a daily basis, achieving results that half way through you sometimes doubt you will even ever achieve, but 100% rewarding seeing the end result.
6. If you could teach one lesson to your younger self about your area of work, what would it be?
Keep you head down, work hard and learn from the more experienced people combining their skills with your own to make you number one at your job.
7. When a project presents you with a difficult challenge, what is your ‘go-to’ tactic for tackling it?
Never bury your head in the sand. Get help and advice from experienced people and then tackle it head on coming out of the other side stronger and more confident.
8. Finally, at the end of a long working week, what does your perfect weekend involve?
Relaxing with my better half at home, spending quality fun time with both our children whether it be travelling around or just staying at home. Walking down to the local pub for a nice meal and a glass of red.
