Say hello to Ashley Winstanley!

We'd like to introduce you to one of our newest team members who has joined the team at our York branch. Say hello to, Ashley Winstanley. 

Have a read below to find out a little bit more about Ashley and what he has to say about working at James Burrell.

What is your job role?

Branch Sales at the York Branch.

What does a normal day in the role involve?

A normal day for me involves managing accounts for the branch, creating quotes and tenders, and processing orders. 

A bit of an insight on your career so far, have you worked in construction before? If not, what did you do prior to joining James Burrell.

I have worked within the Construction industry since I was 18/19. After college I started my career working for a roofing company in York where I was promoted to Assistant Manager. Since then, I have gained valuable experience in a number of roles. 

What is your favourite thing about the company so far?

My favourite thing about the company so far has to be knowing everybody's door is open. No matter who you are, everybody will take the time to help and understand any issues you may have and guide you in the right direction.  Also, I love the belief the company has in their employees to be able to progress and promote within the company hence low staff turnover. 

What does your perfect weekend look like?

My perfect weekend would be relaxing on the beach all day then enjoying a T-Bone steak on the evening! Or a dream of mine is to win the lottery so I could buy York City.
