Meet Ian, our Mission Controller at Bristol South Space Program:
“I was lucky to get this job as I applied for it just before COVID hit. It was the only job that I saw that made me go ‘wow’ – so I knew it was for me.
I’m really enjoying being the Mission Controller here at the Bristol South Space Program. It was a new venture, opening amidst the pandemic – a marvellous challenge.
It really is the perfect job for me. I initially spread the word about the opening of our latest, secure self-storage facility on South Liberty Lane, Ashton via social media and the telephone.
And now I’m doing what I love doing; helping customers on a day-to-day basis. I try my best to surprise each customer with the level of service we offer (in a good way, of course!).
Each customer is different with diverse requirements: it may be a house mover who needs to put their stuff in storage for a couple of months between properties. It could be a business that needs 24/7 access to their container with someone on site to sign for their deliveries.
I am here to help in any way I can.
I started with 40 containers; we now have another 40 and there will be 200 in the end. I look forward to meeting all our future customers – feel free to come and say ‘hello’.
