James Giles

Maintenance Electrician

Professional Career

I left school at 16 with 11 GCSEs A-C and then went on to do a four year apprenticeship as an electrician at a company called Brightsparks. I studied a huge range of electrical systems at Brightsparks including installation of Solar panels. After leaving Brightsparks I moved on to do self-employed contracting work from CCR systems who specialised in CCTV and Epas systems. I was then informed of a job at Gaunts by John Giles who is the Buildings manager and also my father.

Role within the company

I take on most electrical jobs onsite from minor works to full rewiring of units. I also carry out the general maintenance of the site, including sweeping and tidying to the weekly fire alarm testing.

What do you do with your spare time?

I am a keen football player and normally play 3-4 times a week. I also enjoy socialising with friends and taking my dog for a walk.
