Meet The Team

Becki Richman - Customer Support

 

What name/nickname do you prefer to be called? 

My “proper” name is Rebecca, but only my grandad calls me that, to everyone else I am Becki, or Bec.

If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?

 Officially I am Customer Support and I hope that is what I achieve. I started out as part of the Training team within the department, but am now fairly versed up on the rest of the roles that fall under our area, from Products to Export, Training to Inspections, but my expertise still lies with Training. As you can imagine, this is a very busy department which currently handles the majority of the inbound calls and looks after the incoming customer enquiries and orders, but busy is definitely best!!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

To be honest, and apologies for the cheesiness, I cannot say that there is anything I dislike. No two days are the same, so you never feel stuck in repetition. I learn more and more every day, and I get to speak to many amazing people from all walks of life trying to achieve the same thing – Safety!!

What are your hobbies? 

In my younger days I was a trampolininst, competing against clubs from all over the UK. I even got to enter the Manchester Youth Games. I came 3rd in my category but still a proud achievement at 11 years old. After that I did a spot of Roller Dance and Figure Skating, which I miss greatly, but look back on with fond memories. I started out never having worn a boot, and moved up the ranks super quickly to Semi-Professional status, but then I met boys and gave it all up haha. Nowadays, it’s about spending time with my husband and teenage daughter. 

What volunteering or passion projects do you do outside of work?

I am blessed with living locally to many beauty spots and canal paths so we do enjoy walks with our Springador, Roxy, at the weekend. You could also call me a bit of a TV/film buff as I do spend way too much time watching tele these days, but I do love a good fiction book when I get chance.

Additionally, I dabble in selling a bit of Body Shop products, but not for profit, more for the fun of group interaction, confidence building, and because their ethics strike a chord with me. 

Above  - High Roller! Becki achieved great success as a trampolinist and then in Roller Dance and Figure Skating.
