Robin BatchelderBest things about working at Buildstore

''The best thing about working for Buildstore is the constant challenges that are set for us & the personal goals that we all set ourselves in taking the company from what it was when I joined some five years ago to where it is now,and playing my part in taking the business to the next level. Being in at the launch of the Trade Account & helping to make it one of the biggest and most active Merchant accounts in the country. Now being at the heart of developing a truly unique Visitor Centre, which is already generating massive interest & genuine excitement from not only clients, but also our industry partners. ''

What is your personal highlight since you started working here?

'Managing the build programme at Swindon, the only place in the country where you can get all the information you need as a self builder. Four principle contractors, ten significant subcontractors. Incredibly detailed series of exhibits, all as technically correct as we can make them, and bringing in some 'theatre' as well - challenging, but awesome!“

What piece of advice would you offer to anyone joining the Company?

"Be honest with your colleagues & clients, get your head down & just work your heart out. The rewards & personal satisfaction will come."

Why should they join Buildstore?

"What other company apart from Buildstore really offers the complete package to self builders? If it's an industry you are interested in then there is a future for you here. Five years ago there were about twenty employees working out of a very small office in Livingston it was hard work & great fun. Now there are around a hundred & twenty employees & it feels like the company has grown up. With what we are all working towards now; in another five years... who knows, but for those who put the effort in, we will all be part of something very special"
