Tim’s story

 

Hello, my name is Tim. I am Qube’s Transport Operations Assistant and have worked for Qube for nearly three years.  Before working for Qube I had roles in wine sales and delivery.

Being involved in Dial A Ride and other transport activities means my role is a varied one.  I work closely with our volunteers, making sure that they are in the right place at the right time and have everything they need.  I’m also involved in making sure our vehicles are safe and in good running order.

Another important part of my role is to take customer bookings. This is a great opportunity to talk to the people who depend on our services and make sure that they are all ok.

Qube occupies quite a large building over two floors and there is usually something that needs fixing or checking so building maintenance comes under my responsibility too.

I work most closely with our Transport Manager, Michelle and, as I am based just behind reception, I see a lot of people coming and going.

My role gives me the opportunity to achieve something worthwhile every day.  I really enjoying working with volunteers and our great staff team.  The variety of services we offer means there’s never a dull moment!

While I’ve been at home over the past few weeks, I can honestly say that my gardening skills have improved.  I’ve rediscovered exercise including cycling and have taken part in daily challenges for the 2.6 Challenge.

I’ve certainly missed the team and our volunteers and the buzz that is Qube! Getting back to some normality is going to involve having a cup of coffee with everyone.  Then, I’ll pick up where I left off and press on.

I’m not a biscuit lover so It’s difficult to choose a favourite – perhaps a fig roll.

My top three (well, four) lock-down songs are

  1. Black – Pearl Jam
  2. Drunk in Love – Beyonce
  3. Sunshine in Leith – The Proclaimers
  4. Zombie – The Cranberries
