AVTPUMP encourages a knowledge sharing culture, passing our experience and expertise on to other colleagues at every opportunity so we can all learn and improve.

What are your fellow team members like to work with?
I get on well with everyone in team. We do have a good laugh when appropriate but only when the job is getting done to the highest possible standards.
Although I have only been in the team a relatively short time I do class some of my colleagues as genuine friends.

Integrating into the team so quickly and gaining the teams trust so they feel that they can come to me for help and advice.
