Our previous fast five blog post’s have been such a hit that we have decided to continue them. This month we are excited to introduce you to Service Technician, Toby. Toby joined the team earlier this year and does a stellar job servicing our clients out on the road.
What got you into plumbing?
“I got into plumbing through work experience in high school. I completed a week with a plumbing company and found I quite enjoyed what was involved and was lucky enough to be offered an apprenticeship.”
What’s your favourite part about plumbing?
“My favourite part about plumbing is the satisfaction you get when you have completed a nice neat job for a client, especially when some points of the job were challenging. I also love the fact you never stop learning new techniques or information no matter how much experience you have.”
What do you like to do outside of plumbing?
Toby loves spending time outdoors! some activities he enjoys are “fitness, spending time at the beach and sightseeing.”
Toby’s #1 tip for aspiring plumbers
“My number 1 tip for aspiring plumbers is to try and get into a pre-apprenticeship course to get a rough idea of exactly what’s involved in plumbing and why it’s such a good trade to have. This hands on experience will allow you to figure out if it is the apprenticeship for you.”
What’s something about you (outside of plumbing) that always surprises people when they find out?
“People are very surprised when I tell them I’m a good cook.”
So, the next time our undercover MasterChef Toby is at your house fixing a problem don’t forget to ask him what his favourite recipe is or if he has any cooking tips!
