A day in the life of the Quills Interiors Manager

Mike Jones, Quills Interiors Manager, is celebrating his two year anniversary at Quills Group. Mike joined Quills with a wealth of experience, spanning 36 years and in this article, he gives an insight into some of the projects he’s worked on during his time as the Interiors Manager.

 

When first asked about what he enjoys about his role as Quills Interiors Manager, Mike said he still gets a thrill when seeing the finished results of a project that originally start as a brief and then progress to planning, quotation and final completion stage when the installation takes place.

Discussing further about his experience in the Interiors sector, Mike explains: “When I started selling office furniture, there were only two desk colours to choose from and four different colours for seating. This meant that the overall decision process on what to choose was a lot easier than now where we are spoilt for choice. There are hundreds of vibrant colours to choose from and many manufacturers, so the choice for our clients can be a daunting one which is where I step in. My role varies on a daily basis meaning that one day I’ll be working on my laptop or meeting a new or existing client, whilst at other times I could be providing a client demo on how to operate the latest task chairs. No one day is ever the same.

I’ve worked on some really interesting projects, with the most recent of these working with the Dogs Trust charity on a complete fit-out project. This included the installation of a new kitchen, partitioning to create new office and new carpeting throughout. A colour scheme of white bench desks with yellow desk mounted screens and black operator chairs were chosen to align with their brand colours. I worked to a three week schedule over the Christmas period and completed the project within their specified timescale. The feedback we received on the project was very complimentary and they were extremely impressed with the final result.

Of course, with any job, there are some bad days and I like to call these my ‘challenges’! We all have the odd bad day, but I enjoy my role as Interiors Manager at Quills and it allows me to meet and talk to so many varied and interesting people.”
