Jobs at Fowlers
Job Title: Switchboard Operator
"I joined Fowlers on the 5th of April 2000 as switchboard operator. Although a single mother, I wanted to work full time, to be independent and to provide for my children and Fowlers gave me that opportunity.
My role has evolved a little over the years within the Contact Centre and I am lucky enough to work in an office with some lovely guys, who have become firm friends. I have seen some of the staff come and go…and then come back again! We have quite a few that have been with Fowlers for over 30 or even 40 years.
I've had the pleasure in seeing Fowlers grow and friendships endure, whilst my children are now also independent and flourishing with families of their own."
Name: Tom Condron
Job Title: Bicycle Specialist
"I have been working in specialist bicycle shops for eight years and during that time have gained a wealth of knowledge. I completed a cycle maintenance and repair NVQ (Cytech level 2) which enabled me to become a qualified bicycle technician.
Whilst working at my previous employment I achieved a life ambition to buy a motorcycle and had no idea of the positive effect it would have on my life. Shortly after gaining my license, I heard of a potential new venture at Fowlers. The company wanted to go back to their roots by selling bicycles. I felt the natural progression for me was to pursue a new career and challenge by working with the two passions in my life, and Fowlers welcomed me to the team.
Job Title: Service Manager
"After a number of years working in the insurance industry, ten years ago I decided a new challenge was needed and embarked upon a career in the motor trade. In 2002, an opportunity arose to join Fowlers as a Warranty Administrator and I’ve never looked back!
My ambition was to work towards the role of Service Manager and, with excellent support from Fowlers’ senior management together with the highly professional training received from certain manufacturers, my goal was realised early in 2008. The Team Fowlers’ spirit is very evident within the Service Department and my staff give me fantastic back up and support.
At the moment I ride a Yamaha FZ1 and, when not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my young son and caring for and riding my horse."
Job Title: Triumph Brand Manager
"My background was working for a small family and solus dealership specialising in Triumph motorcycles since 2001. The prospect of working at a well known and respected company like Fowlers seemed a bit daunting at first. In actual fact it's great, I am enjoying the challenge and still working for a family business, but with the feel and support of a larger family.
My position within the company since joining in November 2007 is Triumph Brand Manager and I feel I have embarked on a career rather than just filling a job. The company provides ongoing in house training and support not only for the Triumph brand, but also the other motorcycle brands that we sell.
The showroom is always busy and I enjoy seeing so many interesting people, it really makes the day go quickly. A great many of the customers we see have been dealing with Fowlers for a long time, but it's always good to see friendly faces from my previous dealership and to meet new customers who have come to Fowlers for the first time."
Job Title: Triumph Service Technician
"I was born in Ireland and qualified as a motorcycle technician before moving to America in 2000. Spending 4 years in New York was fantastic and during my time there I worked exclusively with Honda bikes, enjoyed AMA Superbike races and sampled the very varied nightlife! The Americans enjoyed high performance bikes and I was never asked to fit an alarm on a bike, which seemed rather strange.
Following my exciting stay in the Big Apple it was back to England to spend time working on Suzuki's and my favourite bikes, Triumph. During the summer of 2008, I decided a further challenge was needed and was thrilled when my application to join Team Fowlers was successful. I am now working in the state-of-the-art workshop and specialising in Triumph motorcycles."
