What is your role at Laser 24?
- I am the Senior Laser Operator at Laser 24.

- Ensuring smooth running of our equipment 24 hours a day, I also train and direct other members of the team to ensure every job goes through with perfect results.
Tell us about your beginning with Laser 24…
- I joined Laser 24 a good couple of years ago, in May 2017.
- I was recommended to the company by an employee who was a friend of the family.
- I worked in hospitality before, but the shifts were a bit over the place and I wanted to work in a full-time stable job.
What skills did you bring to Laser 24?
- I brought good communication skills, organisational skills and – best of all – a positive attitude to the company!
What do you enjoy the most about working at Laser 24?
- I enjoy the people I work with and everyone is very likeable.
- We get interesting projects to laser cut.
- We get good insight into how products are manufactured.
- I enjoy the challenge that comes with the bespoke nature of our projects, always working out the best way to laser cut for every job.
- We continuously work to maintain a high standard in the quality of the work.
- I also get satisfaction from improving the work flow in production.
- All around it’s about delivering a premium cut to our customers, every time, and always within a quick and efficient turnaround.
What have been your favourite work projects so far?
- A Corten panel which really challenged the laser software and laser cutting due to its intricate nature.
- I also loved producing the ‘Ganesh panel’ metal partition for an office.
How do you see your future at Laser 24?
- There are always opportunities to grow in your career at Laser 24.
- There is great investment in the team at Laser 24 – to promote and push people to grow, to develop internally rather than recruit externally.
- I see my future to be promoted through the ranks to be Operations Manager!
Tell us a bit about yourself outside of work
- Family… I have a huge family!
- Playing video games.
- My favourite night is not so much a ‘pub night’ but to have people over to play boardgames.

What’s your life motto?
