We like to think we’re a friendly bunch at Harvey Environmental Services, and we must be doing something right because two of our team are celebrating ten years’ service each with us.
Deborah Wood joined us as an administrator a decade ago and has seen her role expand from invoicing duties to dealing with customer queries and assigning technicians to attend call outs.
As her customer facing role grew, Deborah chose to increase her knowledge of the pest control industry by enrolling on the RSPH Level 2 Award in Pest Management. She celebrated her ten-year anniversary finding out she had passed the industry standard.
“There’s a great team of staff here at Harvey Environmental and it really is a fantastic company to work for,” said Deborah. “Everyone is really supportive of each other and we know that we all play a vital role in the success of the company. The management team are really good at recognising the contribution of all staff through regular socials and celebrations and I’m pretty sure I’ll be here until I retire now!”
Former factory worker Gordon Unthank felt the time was right for a career change when he joined the company as a pest control technician ten years ago.
He said: “Martin supported me through my industry training a decade ago and continues to ensure I, and the other pest control technicians, are knowledgeable on the latest industry regulations and standards and that our training is up-to-date.
“No two days are the same as a pest control technician, from dealing with small flying pests to larger rodents, and whether I am working on a job alone or as part of a larger team, it is a fantastic company to work for and I definitely made the right choice when I switched careers.”
Established in 2001, the growing team at Harvey Environmental Services has extensive experience in the pest control and washroom services industries.
Managing director Martin Harvey said: “We’re delighted that Deborah and Gordon are celebrating long service milestones with us.
“They are both valued members of our team who have made a huge contribution to the growth and success of the company over the past ten years.
“We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding customer service and a high level of industry expertise to our clients and this is made easier by commitment from employees like Deborah and Gordon.”
