Whilst they had a spare moment, we sat down with Lindsey, Jo, Brian and Joe to speak to them about their roles , and what motivates them the most …
Lindsey – I am entering into my 9th year at Lincoln Security, starting as a trainee Master key technician, leading to be the Manager I am today.
A typical week in the Master keying department would consist of creating and designing master keyed suites for customers such as National Grid or Anglian Water, delegating work to my colleagues which include high security key cutting, arranging deliveries from our suppliers (ASSA/ABLOY) and Utility companies who require bulk products. My team and I average each month between 2000-3000 units across the board; so my department is certainly a crucial part to the company.
Working alongside my direct family has got to be one of the best decisions I chose on my career path. I always push myself to accomplish more & I have been on managers courses to get me there. I love to get stuck in and involved where it needs.
My aim is to follow in my fathers (Aiden) footsteps & carry the business forward, making him even more proud of the person I have become.
Jo – My experience of working in the manufacturing industry for over 33 years , enabled me to gain my position at Lincoln security beginning the journey within those years. I’m now entering into my 14th year.
Our Lincoln security family helped me to diversify my life skills within the locksmiths world completing the maintenance and technical construction which include problem solving and production of our wide spectrum of keys, padlocks and cylinders on a daily basis , which has contributed to my new in house title of Master key technician.
Teamwork within Master key works so well and I am proud to work alongside my manager Lindsey, there’s times when we work under pressure with jobs , sharing roles and the workload at times is intense , but what makes it work so well is we still make time to have a laugh and giggle .
Hallmarking a motto that Positivity turns that “frown upside down”
Visitors entering the department will and have been amazed, that the roles we play are not assigned to a robot….. so maybe the new word for myself will be “Jobot”
On the home front, a very supportive partner and beautiful family and friends including 2 beautiful grandsons, makes my life pretty much a butterfly effect.
Brian – Lindsey says: “Brian is such an important part within the Master keying area, his knowledge & experience is essential & is practiced throughout all our work.”
Joe – “I started my time at Lincoln Security as an apprentice Engineer, I have recently made a moved across into the Master key department. I believe that my skill set from my previous occupation here has helped significantly in how I have picked up the new role I am now in. I joined when I was 18 and have been here just short of 3 years.”
Fun Fact – Lindsey – I am a secret cat lady to a gorgeous Seal Point Ragdoll named Ozzy!
Fun Fact – Joe – In my free time I enjoy racing my Motocross bike in the Lincolnshire Enduro Championships, I am also a keen Air softer as well.
