James Munro

Where are you from?

I was born in Bolton and have lived there most of my life with the exception of when I went traveling around the world for a year.

Where did you study/work previously?

I attended St James’s C.E school in Bolton. After leaving school and spending some time in college I decided to leave to take a job in the retail sector for which I was there for several years before leaving for the around the world trip.

Upon my return to the UK, I have had several jobs including warehousing, the retail sector, and working at the Department for Work and Pensions.

What is a typical day at MTS like for you?

Most days are different as my role includes HR, data protection, finance, and running the IT systems for the company. From one day to the next  I am generally not doing the same thing.

What’s the best thing about your role?

I like to be able to help the company to run in a more streamlined and efficient way. It’s my job to make the team's working day easier to run as smoothly as possible.

What do you consider is your biggest achievement within your role?

When I created a client database along with an HR hub for our team to easily access. Everything is now centralised which makes for easier collaboration among the team.
