ACR Journal talks to senior sales and applications engineer Lisa-Jayne Cook, a member of the Women in RACHP steering committee, who recently moved from Aqua Group to J&E Hall.
What was your first job?
My first job was secured through Fareport Training, an apprenticeship/work placement training organisation. I was placed as an office junior/sales support at Bonwyke. This was my introduction into the world of building services, with a leading UK wholesaler and installer of protective window film. It was here that I built the foundations for my future career, completing my modern apprenticeships in Information Technology and Customer Services.
Industrial refrigeration apprentice Tom Woolston of Star Refrigeration was named ACR Trainee of the Year 2018 at the annual awards ceremony at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield.
Oliver Drury of JD Cooling was runner-up and Tom Fearon of Source BioScience highly commended.
The judges paid tribute to the high standard of entries this year and seven other finalists were also recognised. They were: Evan Minns of JD Cooling, Alex Wilson (Dunbia), Ben Wilson (Knight Engineers), Grant Leniewski (Coolbreeze), Ben Hornby (Acme Facilities Group), Daniel Warren (James Mercer Group) and Stephen Day (Culm Cooling).
