Team member spotlight – Pete Groombridge
Pete Groombridge – Systems Test Engineer
“I have worked at Baldwin Boxall for over five years now, in a few different positions. My current role is what I had originally hoped for when I joined the team and I’m fortunate enough that this arose. No two days are exactly the same and I enjoy the variety that my job affords me. I feel very lucky to get up every morning looking forward to coming to work!
I started as a temp to provide holiday cover for a month in the good in department. Whilst covering that role, I realised what a good company Baldwin Boxall is to work for and fortunately a permanent position arose in the despatch department, which I applied for and was successful.
In my spare time, I am a keen angler and have full sponsorship with the fishing tackle giant, Maver.
Since the age of 16, I have represented my home town of Tonbridge in the British National Championships, gaining promotion from division 6 to division 1 – fishing against World Champions and England Internationals.
Last year I fished the South East Reservoir Championships, in which you can have up to six attempts to qualify for a two day final. I qualified on the second round to go through to the final – this also included some of the best Team England Internationals. To finish eighth out of 64 anglers in the final was a very good result!”
