Former carpenter Daniel Mann has taken a step forward in his career at Jehu Project Services. Dan, 37, has moved into the role of After Care Technician at Bridgend based construction firm Jehu. Dan has been with the company for the past 3 years, initially joining as a carpenter.
When Dan started at Jehu much of his work involved working as part of a team on Fitout schemes which he enjoyed but, this new role is taking him a step in the right direction to his chosen career path.
Dan commented; “Becoming an After Care Technician is a great stepping stone for me, I’m working alongside Darren Thomas and our Customer Care Manager Mark Jones, the job throws up something different everyday.”
Vince Alm, Lead Project Manager and Dan’s Line Manager said; “It’s great Dan has joined the team. He proved during his trial period what an asset he will be to our team, he has good people skills which is crucial for his role. Dan is persistent at closing out jobs, he has good sub-contractor management, he has built up good working relationships with our clients and is fully committed to improving Jehu reputation and the service we provide.”
This new role allows Dan to work with many of Jehu’s key clients such as United Welsh and Newydd Housing Associations. Working closely with Jehu’s sub-contractors Dan looks after the schemes once they have been fully handed over to the client, offering a one year defect service.
Dan has a varied history, studying Engineering at Nash College for 3 years, completing a 4 year apprenticeship at LJ Hawkins Joinery and successfully running his own property and maintenance business for 2 years.
Dan said; “I really enjoy working at Jehu, it’s actually the best company I’ve worked for, the people are great. This opportunity is moving me towards my goal to become an Assistant Site Manager, this role will give me the experience and exposure I need to make that leap.
