Introducing… Rob Jones
Rob is our friendly, approachable Business Development Advisor. He has a wealth of experience in Customer Service and Sales and is the ultimate people’s person. We caught up with Rob to find out why he loves what he does at Coventry College and what makes him tick…
What do you like about your role at Coventry College?
I really enjoy being able to advise both students and businesses in order to help them reach their goals. It is great being able to meet lots of different people, understand their needs and put the right means in place for them succeed. Hearing the success stories of our apprentices really motivates me!
And what is your favourite thing about working at the College?
I’ll have to say two things! I love being part of the education system, the feeling that everyone around you is learning and working to better themselves is exciting.
There is a good mix of people across the two campuses – different personalities and people from all walks of life! There is an upbeat and positive feel across the College which means I am always happy going into work.
You are always so positive and motivated… what are the values that drive you?
I value friendship and integrity. I think a sense of humour is essential and think it is so important to make people feel welcome and included.
And now the important questions… if you could switch places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be and why?
It would have to be Nigella Lawson! She always makes everything look so effortless and fabulous. Plus, she’s always got something amazing in the kitchen for dinner and plenty of time to make it.
And what could we find you doing when you’re not at work?
I very much enjoy the freedom of going for a drive and exploring the countryside and enjoy visiting National Trust properties. I love the theatre and a wander around the shops. I enjoy watching University Challenge and Holby City and I enjoy listening to the radio, especially Radio 2 and The Archers.
