UNTHA UK – Staff in the Spotlight
In this second staff spotlight, one of UNTHA’s newest recruits, technical masters graduate Valeriia, explains how she’s quickly become a part of the Boroughbridge team and gained a particular ‘soft spot’ for the four shaft shredder.
Name: Valeriia Taylor
Job title: After Sales Administrator
1. What does your role entail?
The core part of my role is to provide administrative and technical support to the busy after sales department, enabling UNTHA UK’s team of engineers more time to focus on the installation, maintenance and servicing of clients’ shredders throughout the UK. By helping to alleviate their workload in the office, as well as assisting with client queries myself, we can collectively deliver increasingly greater levels of customer service, which is a priority for our brand.
2. How long have you been with the company?
I’m UNTHA UK’s newest recruit having been with the company three months. It doesn’t sound like a long time but, after a very warm welcome, I already feel like an integral part of the team and have learned a lot so far.
3. What’s the best thing about your job?
The variety of jobs and projects that we get involved with throughout the country. There’s virtually nothing our machines cannot shred, therefore every day is different.
I am also proud to be working for a company that is actively doing something good for the environment.
4. For you, which is UNTHA’s stand-out shredder?
I personally like the RS four shaft shredder series, due to its in-built robustness and ability to handle virtually any waste stream with ease.
5. Which is your favourite UNTHA project?
Because I’ve not been at UNTHA as long as some of my colleagues, I find them all pretty fascinating. Even the smaller, simpler jobs are really interesting.
6. What’s been your biggest work achievement, since joining UNTHA?
I have recently worked on a planning application for a special new project, whereby I have had deal with both the planning authorities and facilities companies.
I am really pleased that even after such a short time my colleagues trust me to support them with responsibilities such as this.
7. Describe UNTHA in three words:
A company with in-built principles of: reliability, quality, care.
And finally some more light-hearted questions…
8. What’s your favourite food?
Pasta with seafood.
9. How do you relax on a weekend?
Seeing friends, walking, cycling, learning something new, reading books, and enjoying time with my family and pet rabbit Bonny.
10. If you were stranded on a desert island, what is the one thing you couldn’t live without?
Knowledge and creativity.
