Curtis Farrand – Yard & Plant Supervisor

I started off my working career straight from school, by becoming an Apprentice Tool & Plant fitter. As I grew into the role, I began to help out on the hire desk, which I enjoyed. This led to me wanting to challenge myself, so I took on a two-year NVQ in Hire & Rental Operations. Soon after completing the NVQ an opportunity arose at R&C – and since then I haven’t looked back.

One of my visions was to implement an in-house tools hire desk which would operate out of the stores here at R&C. I successfully integrated internal tool hire into the businesses operations, and I am delighted to say it has so far been a huge success – saving both money for the company and crucially time for my colleagues. Alongside running the tool hire I also manage the stores and yard, which includes the day-to-day supervision of operatives in the yard and the management of our waste transfer station.
