The Milton Keynes-based UK arm of Austrian fittings solutions manufacturer Blum has expanded its team of product support advisors with the addition of Nathan Sydney, left, and Jodie Mack, right, who both joined in June.
Nathan has worked in various customer service roles over the past 14 years, in companies ranging from PC World to Portakabin. He said: “I am part of the technical team offering advice and technical services to our customer and partners. My focus going forward with be assembly devices so I will be working more with our machines, learning more about them and doing service and commissioning work. I am now part of the warehouse maintenance team and will be servicing our warehouse crane system. I have really enjoyed my first 3 months at Blum – the office is a fantastic place to work.”
Jodie has joined Blum after a varied career including teaching sport at a school in Cambridge, followed by sales jobs in the catering industry. With time on her hands in lockdown, she developed a passion for upcycling furniture, as she really enjoyed the technical challenges involved.
She said: “As a hands-on person, the technical role appealed to me. I had no experience in the kitchen industry, so the role also gave me the challenge of pushing myself and widening my skill set and knowledge in a completely new industry. The role offers a huge variety from day to day which is great. Blum is a wonderful company to work with – my team is so supportive, and Blum is providing me with the stepping stones to become the best I can.”
