Each month we ask one of the Blocc team members to tell us a little bit more about themselves. This month we’d like to introduce you to Sarah!
Years at Blocc:
24 years (with a gap year)
Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work?
Over the years I’ve been influenced by many of my co-workers, working in such a creative environment brings a variety of personalities and knowledge!
Not forgetting of course my Dad who has always taught me to work hard and follow my dreams.
What behaviour or personality trait do you most attribute your success to, and why?
I’m a very positive person and won’t allow myself to get stressed too often! I’m also super organised and love a good list!
What was your first job?
My first job part-time job was working behind the bar and waitressing in my local pub. I absolutely loved it and took great pride in saving enough money for my first car.
My first real job was organising the shore excursions for cruise lines, which was amazing! I was very lucky at a young age to travel on the cruise lines and experience the excursions for myself!
What led you to this career?
Once I’d had the opportunity to cruise to the Caribbean 😊, I felt the need to spread my wings and seek a new challenge and here I am 24 years later!
What inspires you at work?
I’m very lucky to work in an industry that is so creative and diverse. The Management Team inspire me daily with their knowledge, drive and passion and the Design Team continue to blow my mind daily with their creativeness! It’s always a pleasure to share their design schemes with our clients.
For me every day is a school day!
Area there any colours and patterns you love?
There are too many to choose! I don’t particularly favour one look although I do have a soft spot for a Modern Classic scheme.
What are your favourite items for the home?
I have a weakness or cushions! They always have to be feather filled too.
What advice would you give to your teenage self?
Follow your gut it’s not usually wrong and always be nice to people on your way up, because you may meet them on the way back down!
What’s your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?
I love to spend time with my family and walking through the fields with my daft cocker spaniel Toby!
What is your favourite holiday destination and why?
Florida! Action packed beyond belief but full of adventures and memories that will last a life time.
