What do you do at JAH?
I do a lot of reactive / call out jobs, which means that I am meeting new people all the time. I really enjoy this type of work, and would hate to be stuck for weeks on end on a building site!

What do you enjoy most about working at JAH?
I’ve been at JAH for about 5 years & love getting “Thank yous” from our customers – and sometimes even a nice cup of tea. I like the calibre of work, that things run smoothly & are well organised. I think we all make a great team.

Did you always want to be an electrician?
Unbelievably – yes! I am a hands-on person, and I like to be active. The only other job I ever considered was being a fire fighter.

When you aren’t working, what do you like to do?
Well, I am absolutely football mad! I have always played / been a part of football. I am in my 5th season as Manager of Marine Academy Plymouth Ladies Football Team – where I met my wife! We are in the South West Women’s Premier Division. I coach 16 – 40 year olds.


If you could be anywhere else right now?
Watching any football – I think I must drive my wife potty! I am a Blackburn Rovers supporter…and, you guessed it, Alan Shearer is my football hero.

Have you always been a family man?
Well – when I was younger there were lots of boys trips abroad. Now I’m married and we have an amazing 1 year old daughter, Ellie. So my dream holiday now would be to visit Disneyland as a family  – Mum & Daughter both love Winnie the Pooh!!

Dogs or cats?! 
Dogs – definitely!! We have a King Charles Cavalier – called Nico.

 

 

 What’s the best thing about where we live?
I love the Barbican – I would recommend people check out a few of the pubs! And also the Hoe – it’s so picturesque.


Meet the Team - Dan Baker -James Bond

Growing up, what TV or films did you love & how about now?
As a kid, I loved Thomas the Tank Engine & Pokemon! And films – it has to be James Bond – Daniel Craig being my favourite Bond, I think.

 

Is there anything that really gets your goat?
Yes! People without manners. If I hold the door for somebody, and they don’t say thanks. Manners don’t cost anything, do they?

And finally, do you have a nickname you would care to share with us?
Only Bakes or Baker. Only my Mum calls me Daniel (when I’ve done something wrong!)
