Since leaving school Derek set out to gain his qualifications in carpentry. He is a fully qualified carpenter / joiner and has many years' experience in shop fit out including partition walls, timber, metal stud and ceilings. Derek has a City and Guilds in carpentry and joinery and NVQ level 2 in suspended ceilings and drywall partitions.
As a Site Supervisor, Derek ensures all walls and ceilings are set out correctly and built to the correct specification according to the plans. He also has to oversee the quality of the finish and make sure it meets the standard expected.
Derek's interests outside of work are relaxing and spending time with his family, although he does like a game of darts and to watch a bit of football.
