Meet the Team – Say Hi to Geoff

By Holly Johnson, Marketing Executive

Meet Geoff

We believe a company is only as good as its people, and we know how to spot a good egg.

The talented professionals behind the delivery of Compucare are a group of dedicated, motivated and skilled experts who inspire Streets Heaver to be better every day. And we’re incredibly proud of them.

So, without further ado, meet Geoff, Streets Heavers’ super Support Manager

What was your first job and how did you get into your current field of work?

First job was aged 18 after messing up A Levels, as a data input clerk for Matthew Hall Group Services. A few years later while working for the NHS I studied for an HNC in Computer Studies, realised I wasn’t going to get a related job move within the NHS, saw the Streets Heaver ad for a Support role, and the rest, as they say, is history.

What do you enjoy about working at Streets Heaver?

There’s never a shortage of anything to do, and you can never really be sure how a day’s going to pan out, so things don’t get boring. Everyone is very supportive of each other, and departments will always pull together to try and progress any issues.

What never fails to make you sad or disappointed?

Being asked to do cricket teas.

What was the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?

Stalker by Lars Kepler – enjoyed it and would definitely read more by this author, but don’t pick it up if you’re after a feel-good, happy story.

Which four famous people (living or dead) would you invite to your next dinner party?

David Bowie, Sir Donald Bradman, Stan Laurel, Harper Lee.

Tea or Coffee? And how do you take it?

Coffee, milk with one sugar.

What is your favourite joke or one you have heard most recently?

At Bob’s retirement party the MD stands up and says, “I’d just like to say a word about Bob”, clears his throat then says, “plethora”, and sits back down. Bob turns to him and says, “thank you, that means a lot”.

What has been one of the greatest moments in your life so far?

The births of my sons and seeing them growing up into decent and talented young men. That or taking 5-41 for Saxilby v Aisthorpe in 1993, it’s a close-run thing.

Finally, if you could be any superhero, who would it be and why?

Superman, because he has so much going on superpowers-wise, and it also shows that geeky guys can become superheroes too.
