I’m a Tool Hire Manager at Travis Perkins, and I’ve worked in the construction hire industry for over sixteen years.
Malik, Tool Hire Manager
I started my career in the Portable Accommodation Industry as an Account Manager, and then worked supplying Non-Mechanical Access Systems, Building Equipment and Safety products to the Construction, Events, Industrial and Utility markets before joining Travis Perkins. I was a supplier initially, looking after all their hire requirements, and then when a management role became vacant I applied for that.
I’d say the best thing about my job is running the Tool Hire department profitably, keeping my colleagues safe and exceeding customer expectations on a day-to- day basis. For me, a good day at work is dealing with everything the day throws at us, and completing tasks successfully, with no accidents.
The company culture at Travis Perkins is great: the work environment is great, the company mission concise and the values and ethics something I aspire to reach. My peers are very friendly, and enjoy working alongside each other every day, which makes the job a lot more fun and enjoyable. It’s a great company to work for, with excellent employee incentives and the opportunity to grow with the company.
