Employee Spotlight – Mike Cubley

Mike is our Senior Technical Advisor here at Norcros Adhesives. He has been with the company for 7 years. Welcome to his Employee Spotlight.

Can you tell us about your role at Norcros Adhesives and how it’s changed since you started?
In the seven years I have been with Norcros Adhesives the role has progressed from the daily technical services role, to include liaising with RIBA, taking a leading role in the sustainability targets for the business, assisting with the introduction of new products and setting them up on our internal systems and facilitating our ISO 9001 and 14001 audits. In addition, I have recently qualified to deliver in house training for both our employees and external customers.

What does a typical day look like for you?
Every day is different and driven by our customers, that is what makes the role so interesting, the daily variation and not knowing exactly how your day is going to progress really challenges you on a daily basis.

How have you been able to learn and grow at Norcros Adhesives?
The additional responsibilities that have been incorporated into my role have given me the opportunity to improve my knowledge base on a number of different fronts. This means that with the addition of the training role, I am able to share knowledge throughout the business.

What has been your proudest moment at Norcros Adhesives?
Taking the company to Gold Membership of The Supply Chain Sustainability School and taking the reigns of our ISO audits in a restricted time frame.

What advice would you give to someone looking to start their career in technical services?
You need to have an interest in the industry and the products you talk about and be passionate about them. Be able to question everything and learn something new everyday.

Can you share any insights about succeeding in this industry?
The construction industry is constantly changing and evolving and products and methods change with it, keep learning and evolving, make work your passion. It will keep you motivated and make it much easier to get out of bed in the morning.

What advice would you give to your younger self about your career?
Never stop learning, believe in yourself and have the courage of your conviction.

What’s your favourite activity in your spare time?
Any type of live entertainment, Music, Theatre Etc
