Employee Spotlight - Alex Bailey

Our ever-energetic colleague Alex Bailey has been with Elmleigh since September 2016, initially supporting our Installation Electricians on various projects but quickly demonstrating an aptitude for the job and a desire to do more.

Consequently, Alex made a commitment to join our Apprentice scheme and has pursued the programme throughout the difficult pandemic period, to soon becoming a fully qualified Installation Electrician himself.
