Ryan Farrow

I have worked for Turnbull’s for just over 5 years. I started working on the counter, progressing onto Heavy Side Team Leader leading up to my current position as Assistant Branch Manager at Brigg. I have just completed a level 3 team leader course which has helped me with my professional development.

Will Wallace

I have been with Turnbull for 5 years now. I originally started in the yard and was working out there for about 3 years in total. It was enjoyable and fun, a very physically demanding job which entailed a lot of hard work and hands-on experience, I am now working on the counter.

My manager (Andrew) motivates me because he wants nothing but the best from us, wanting us to deliver high customer satisfaction at a top level

Daria Pilat

Working in a male-dominated industry isn’t as scary as I expect, in my role, I have the chance to visit all our branches and as daunting as that seems to me as a young female, I have always been welcomed and respected – starting in 2023 I’m starting my L3 HR apprenticeship qualification and I couldn’t be happier to start my career development in this company.

When I started in 2021 my manager said to me ‘you are the future of this company’ that motivates me daily to come and add to the progress of this fast-growing and successful company.

Stacey Worth

I have worked with Turnbull now for four years, originally started in the Contract support office. This developed into going between all the branches and supporting their everyday needs. I have recently completed an apprenticeship, in which I achieved DISTINCTION, being the highest possible grade. I am now currently working in the Horncastle branch, with a great team around me. Looking forward to helping develop the branch, following the great standards Turnbull has as a whole.

Joe Oxley

I’m Joe and I am the plumbing and heating team leader at the Newark branch. I have been with Turnbull for 5 years. I started as a Light side Sales Trader and have progressed up to my current position as Plumbing & Heating Team Leader! The team I work with are fun to be around and really pulls together to get the job done, this includes everyone from the trainee level to management.

George Howseman

I officially started as an admin assistant back in May 2020 helping out with everything. Little bits here and there. Shoot to two years later and I am currently overseeing the purchase ledger team whilst taking on new roles from my Finance Manager and building up my experience within the finance sector. I have completed my Level 2 AAT qualification and am halfway through level 3 now hoping to get that completed early next year
