Meet the Team - Liam Wright

Deputy Training Manager

What name/nickname do you prefer to be called? 

Liam – fortunately not easily shortened.

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

My official title is Deputy Training Manager and I support Sam Wilkinson our Training Manager. I am also an Instructor within the Training Department, travelling all over the UK to deliver Work at Height Training Courses.  I worked ‘on the ropes’ for many years before joining my Dad, Mark Wright as an IRATA Instructor at Mark Wright Training where I worked for 10 years.  When my Dad moved on to work delivering WAH Training on Super yachts I contacted SpanSet as I had previously been impressed with their Training facilities.  I was delighted to be offered a position here in 2017.

I am also SpanSet’s ‘Media Tech Guy’ 😊 and run lead on SpanSet’s Digital Training Media.

What do you enjoy about the work you do? 

I enjoy teaching skills so people can work safely at height, especially IRATA courses where I help candidates progress from having no WAH knowledge to passing their Level 1 and being happy working on the ropes.

I have a real interest in AV (audio visual) tech, having studied Digital Design at college and love that I can combine this with my industry knowledge to produce various digital Training media for SpanSet.

Liam has over ten years experience 'on the ropes'.

What are your hobbies? 

I am a keen gamer, having played Eve-online for over 16 years.  I have excellent PA and audio systems and enjoy adding to and tinkering about with these.

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

My passion is building Track Cars – I have driven at the Nurburgring many times and am about to embark on my next project – a Mazda MX5!
