James Giles

Building Supervisor

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.

I moved onto being self-employed, contracting work from CCR systems who specialised in CCTV and Epas systems.

In 2012 I became employed at Gaunts as part of their maintenance team where I took on most electrical jobs onsite from minor works to full rewiring of units also carrying out general maintenance work.

In 2017 I took on the role as Buildings Supervisor.

Role within the company

As the Buildings Supervisor I work closely alongside the Property Manager, who is also my father.

I deal with the day to day maintenance of the sites, which includes planned and reactive maintenance.

I maintain relevant controls relating to Health & Safety regarding the buildings, services and other trades working on site.

What do you do with your spare time?

I am a father to 3 children, two of which are twins; so I don’t have a lot of spare time.

As a family we enjoy walking our two dogs. I also enjoy cycling, keeping fit and watching sport.
