We’re growing and in order to facilitate that growth we’ve invested in a new member of staff to ensure that customers still receive the same great service and support that they are used to.
Abbie Deighton has joined the Training Department. She will be working closely with Laura and Lauren to plan courses, ensure the courses run smoothly and clients receive their certification in a speedily fashion.
Why do you like your job?
I love all my colleagues and I think if you have a job where the people are nice then no matter what jobs you have to do, you have a good day at work.
What energizes you at work?
A nice coffee and the radio on.
What is your favourite thing about MECsafe?
I love the variety of the job. In a single day I could be doing CSCS tests, course paperwork, dealing with enquiries and helping customers. It never gets samey and boring.
What is your best personality feature?
I like that I am straight talking and will always give people honest answers – people come to me for advice quite a lot because I won’t tell them what they want to hear.
What is one thing you are trying to make a habit?
Me and my boyfriend Steve are really bad for ordering takeaways and going to McDonalds so we have been trying to cook healthy meals at home and not have takeaways – we are on our 3rd week now without any!
What was your favourite toy as a child?
Tamagotchi. Me and my brother both had one and once I convinced him that his needed survival skills so he should bury it in the garden for a week. Sadly, it didn’t survive!
What was your childhood nickname?
My mum called (and still does call me) Roly Mo although it changes to Popsy Mo when she’s telling me she loves me and Flopsy Mo when I’m tired. My dad has always called me Pea.
What was your favourite band 10 years ago?
This one is embarrassing but N-Dubz! My mum once took me and my brother to see them and she had her earplugs and a book whilst we were bopping away.
What is your favourite song?
Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me with George Michael and Elton John. It’s a great one to belt out in the car!
What is something you are really good at?
People are always telling me I make them laugh and cheer them up so I’ll take that!
What is something you are really bad at?
I’m really bad at not letting things drop – if my boyfriend eats the last Ryvitas and doesn’t replace them, he’ll hear about it for at least a week.
What is the best compliment you have ever received?
Somebody once told me I had good, strong morals and that meant far more to me than being told I was pretty or something.
If you had to choose a film title to describe your life, what would you choose?
Probably La La Land – I’m always in my own little Abbie’s world.
Who would play you in a film about your life?
It would have to be Gemma Collins! She’s a diva like me.
